Jenna and Barbara Bush are Born

In 1981, Laura Bush gave birth to fraternal twin daughters, Jenna and Barbara; they graduated from high school in 2000 and from the University of Texas at Austin and Yale University, respectively, in 2004.

Twins Jenna Bush and Barbara Bush are the only children of former U.S. president George W. Bush and his wife Laura. They are fraternal twins, not identical. Barbara was born first and is named after her grandmother, the former First Lady and wife of George Bush the elder. Jenna is named for the twins' other grandmother, Jenna Welch, mother of Laura Bush. In the fall of 2000, as their father was running for his first term as U.S. president, both girls began attending college: Barbara at Yale and Jenna at the University of Texas. Both had well-publicized brushes with the law during their college years: Jenna Bush was cited for underage drinking in an Austin bar in April of 2001; she later pleaded no contest and was sentenced to community service and alcohol awareness classes. A second incident occurred on 30 May 2001, when both girls were cited by police after attempting to buy drinks at an Austin restaurant. Both twins graduated from their respective colleges in May of 2004. Jenna Bush married her longtime boyfriend, Henry Hager, on 10 May 2008 in Crawford, Texas. George W. Bush left office and returned to private life in January of 2009.

Extra credit: Jenna is the blonde twin; Barbara is brunette... A 2003 Associated Press report noted the Secret Service code names for the twins were: Twinkle for Jenna, Turquoise for Barbara.

The First Twins, Jenna and The Other One, are President and Mrs. Bush's only children. They were born November 25, 1981. They are both extremely private people, who actively shun the limelight in favor of a quasi-monastic lifestyle of club-hopping, plum entertainment industry internships, and posing for 10-page fashion spreads in Vogue magazine. Having recently graduated from college, both have decided to join their parents within the protective bubble of the campaign trail, for this, the last Bush political campaign until their uncle Jeb runs for President in 2008.
