We reported just yesterday that Jenna Bush Hager announced she was pregnant with her third child at 37 years old! It was an exciting reveal as she announced it live on air, earning shocked and happy responses from her TODAY co-anchors. However, it hasn’t been all sunshine and happiness on Jenna’s end as she experiences guilt over being able to get pregnant when other women can’t.

TODAY co-anchor Hoda Kotb, recently welcomed a daughter into her family by way of adoption and called in while on maternity leave to congratulate Jenna. Kotb actually knew about the pregnancy well before the official announcement was made.

“Jenna, first of all, you’re amazing. And when you told me that you were pregnant, I still remember because … we were wondering about adoption issues, but listening to you, I was praying,” Kotb shared “And you said, ‘Oh Hoda, I feel so bad.’ I said, ‘Please don’t!’ I was literally kind of holding onto a little secret and look at us, now it’s all out in the open.”

That’s when Jenna called her mom, Laura Bush, and was open about her feelings of guilt that people she knew had infertility issues and could not conceive.

What was Laura Bush’s advice to her daughter?

She said, “Everybody gets their babies when they’re supposed to.”

Jenna also revealed that “My mom and her mom before her struggled with infertility forever, and so I thought that was a beautiful thing to say.” The newly expecting mom continued on, saying, “I don’t take this lightly. I know how blessed and lucky I am. It’s an amazing gift. So Hoda, thank you for your love and happiness and support — and give that baby a kiss.”

Jenna’s pregnancy news came the same day that fellow TODAY star Dylan Dreyer revealed that she and husband Brian Fichera are experiencing secondary infertility and had a miscarriage. It’s no secret as to why Jenna would be feeling so much guilt, but everyone is rallying behind her to help her feel that her pregnancy and her happiness from it is absolutely validated.

“When we came in, I saw Dylan’s post and my heart sank for her because I think we all, at some point, have struggled with something,” Jenna said, to which Dreyer responded with, “Even if you knew I was doing this story today, I would never ever want to have that be the reason why you didn’t announce this today. This is so amazing! My sadness does not take away from your joy.”

This August, the popular ’90s show Saved by the Bell will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Saved by the Bell focused on a group of high school kids and the antics they got into. While the show was mostly a comedy, it did focus on some serious issues that kids face like drug use, women’s rights, and death. It ran from 1989 to 1992 on NBC, but reruns are still shown today.

The series starred Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Dustin Diamond, Lark Voorhies, Dennis Haskins, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Mario Lopez. It appears that most of them are still friends today as they got together to celebrate 30 years!

It appears a portion of the cast got together with their spouses for a dinner in Sherman Oaks, California. Mario Lopez, who played A.C. Slater on the show posted a video introducing who was at the dinner.

Mario, Tiffani Thiessen (who played Kelly Kapowski), Elizabeth Berkley (who played Jessie Spano), and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (who played teen heartthrob Zack Morris) were all in attendance with their spouses.

In the video, Mario zooms the camera around to show all of the former cast in attendance. He shares what a fun time they are having getting together for dinner and even says they ate way too much! Lastly, he says they will be playing credit card roulette to see who picks up the bill.

I’m sure all of them could afford it!

Tiffani also posted a photo of the group dinner on Instagram with the caption “Friends forever…” For longtime fans of the show, you might recognize that lyric from a song by the show’s band Zack Attack. Mark and Jessie also shared the same photo with the captions, “This is what 30+ years of friendship looks like…” and “FRIENDS FOREVER #spousestoo.”

Neuroscience Says Meditation Can Reduce Your Brain Age By 25 Years

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

If you’ve ever wondered about the benefits of meditation or simply sitting quietly, look no further. New neuroscience studies are showing that 50-year-olds can change their brain health to back when they were only 25 by meditating.

This means you can have the same gray matter as 25-year-olds, even though you might be twice that age. As you age, your brain cortexes actually shrink. This can contribute to memory loss and other frustrating aspects of aging.

What are some other proven benefits of meditation?

Many say they are calmer, able to handle stress better, kinder, and more compassionate after starting a meditation practice. Meditation literally changes your brain to make you a better person. Science also shows that meditation can decrease stress, anxiety, depression, and even reduce pain and insomnia.

A recent study looked at people who have been meditating for the past seven to nine years. Those who had been meditating for several years showed increased gray matter in the brain. Increased gray matter helps increase your sensory abilities, which means your hearing and other senses will be better.

Meditation and breathing exercises literally force you to stop what you’re doing, slow down, and focus on your breath. So, it makes sense that this can help you focus more on tasks in front of you and focus on what your senses are telling you.

Dale Jr.’s Mother, Brenda Jackson, Dies At Age 65

One of NASCAR’s most beloved drivers has lost his mother at the age of 65. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was voted NASCAR’s most popular driver 14 times in a row, but there was nothing to celebrate just one day after Easter Sunday when his mother, Brenda Jackson, passed away.

Dale Jr. previously lost his father 18 years ago in a NASCAR-related crash. According to sources, Brenda allegedly passed away after a long battle with cancer. JR Motorsports confirmed the news of Brenda’s passing in a tweet honoring her life.

Brenda was the mother to both Dale Jr. and his sister Kelley Earnhardt-Miller. She married the famous racer Dale Earnhardt Sr. in 1972 and shortly after welcomed both of her children into the world. It’s also worth noting that Brenda was the daughter of stock car builder Robert Gee, who built rides for several drivers back in the ’60s and ’70s.

Brenda would soon move to North California in the late ’80s after getting remarried so she could be closer to her children and grandkids. Dale Jr. and his wife, Amy, actually welcomed their first child into the world in May of 2018. Sister Kelly actually has three children and one of them is an aspiring racer like some of the other relatives in the family!

Both Brenda and Dale Jr.’s sister was a huge part of Dale Jr.’s Xfinity racing team, JR Motorsports. Both of them can be seen in the JR Motorsports videos online and Brenda has even sat in on some of the podcast segments! The family was incredibly close and celebrated everyone’s accomplishments in life together.

Read the official statement below released by JR Motorsports on the passing of Brenda Jackson:

“Known for her wit, charisma and unparalleled ability to cut to the heart of any matter, Jackson became an instant favorite to her friends and colleagues at JR Motorsports when she joined the company as an accounting specialist in 2004. Her sarcastic musings and straightforward approach injected a brand of humor at JR Motorsports that became part of its fabric as it grew into a full-time NASCAR racing operation in 2006 and a championship-winning organization in 2014.”

New book coming out. It details my experiences with concussions. I kept private notes about my experience dating back to 2012 up to the present. These notes were kept even from my closest relationships. The note taking has allowed me to document my journey. It will give you a personal look into the depths of the injury, and also bring some clarity to why I decided to walk away from full time racing. It was hard to relive, but I hope that writing the book will help others who are feeling helpless. Preorder at DaleJr.com

The family has asked that memorial contributions can be sent to Piedmont Animal Rescue or Hospice and Palliative Care of Iredell in Brenda’s honor.

Please SHARE this article with well wishes for the family during this difficult time.
