Jenna Bush Hager, a former first daughter, just got some exciting news. She will permanently be replacing Kathie Lee Gifford on the 'Today' show.

According to Fox News:

Jenna Bush Hager will replace Kathie Lee Gifford alongside Hoda Kotb during the 10 a.m. ET hour of NBC’s “Today.”

Gifford and Kotb made the big announcement on Tuesday’s show, when Bush Hager was formally introduced and quickly given a glass of wine — which has become a signature of the show's fourth hour.

Bush Hager, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, joined “Today” in 2009 and has worked her way up the ranks.

“It feels humbling and I can’t believe it,” Bush Hager said. “My dad just wrote me three words, which made me weep. He said, ‘Very proud dad.’”

  Gifford's last day is scheduled for April 5th and Hager will permanently replace her immediately following the departure.
