Happy 71st Birthday, George W. Bush!
The former president looked perfectly relaxed in a Hawaiian print shirt as he posed with the family dog in a recent Instagram photo.
“Looking good at 71,” wife Laura captioned the happy photo!
And she wasn’t the only Bush family member who took to social media to share the good news. George W. Bush’s daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, shared a sweet throwback photo of her and her twin sister, Barbara, when they were just babies in their parents’ arms. How cute!
Not sure which twin is which? Neither were we until Jenna answered the question for us in her Instagram caption.
“Happy Birthday Popsicle. Thanks for lifting me up since birth. (PS you were more interesting than this yawn!)”
Also, how adorable is it that she calls her father Popsicle? Too funny!
The George H.W. Bush library also tweeted out a happy birthday wish for the 43rd president, sharing a photo of baby George with his father, George H.W.
Of course, the wishes didn’t stop there. Senate Republicans, George W.’s extended family, and even regular people sent their regards. Now that’s a lot of love!
Check out these surprising Jenna Bush Hager facts.
Since his term as president ended in 2009, George W. has had a lot of free time. So how does he spend his days now? We’d wager that he’s a favorite with his grandkids—Jenna Bush Hager’s daughters Poppy and Mila. He’s also enjoyed a few hours at the baseball field, hilariously photobombing a reporter during a broadcast and proving he’s still a child at heart.
Even at 71 years old, the younger Bush seems to still be enjoying an active lifestyle. For the Fourth of July, he shared a photo of himself during a very patriotic bike ride. With his child-like spirit, we’re sure he’s got plenty of gas left in the tank.
Happy Birthday again, George!
