Jenna Bush is engaged



President George W. Bush's daughter Jenna is engaged to marry longtime boyfriend Henry Hager.

"President and Mrs. George W. Bush are happy to announce the engagement of their daughter, Jenna Bush, to Mr. Henry Hager, son of the Honorable and Mrs. John H. Hager of Richmond, Virginia," the White House said in a statement. "Miss Bush and Mr. Hager became engaged Wednesday, August 15, 2007."

Last August, Hager joined the Bush family for a long weekend in Kennebunkport, Maine. At the time, Hager, a former Commerce Department staff member, was just beginning classes to get his MBA at the University of Virginia's Darden School. The 29-year-old is currently in his final year of the program.

As for Jenna, in March she announced plans to publish a book in the fall, titled Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope, about a 17-year-old single mother in Panama living with HIV.

Bush, 25, who was a public school teacher in Washington, D.C., also has spent time in Panama as an intern for UNICEF. And she's working on an as-yet-untitled children's book with her mother, Laura, to be published by Harper Collins next spring.
