Poppy was actually the late Bush’s nickname when Jenna was growing up. Jenna often called him “Gampy” as well, and she said he was moved when he learned that Poppy was named in his honor. “He was not expecting it, so he cried,” Jenna said last year on Hoda & Jenna.

“And of course, I cry at like Teacher Appreciation Day commercials (so) I’m, like, crying over the baby and (husband) Henry’s kind of like wiping the baby’s face off because there’s like tears in the baby’s mouth.”

Remembering the times Poppy and the late Bush were able to spend together

One year yesterday, we lost our Gamps. He is gone but he left behind a family that loves each other— we talked yesterday about how much we love him and each other. He showed us that serving with humility is the best way to serve and that living with kindness and generosity of spirit is the best way to live. We miss you Gampy, but as Mila said yesterday: don’t worry mama, he’s celebrating in heaven with Ganny. 💫

Bush died back in 2018 at the age of 94, but Poppy was able to spend some time with him prior to his passing. She may have been quite young, but it’s certainly a moment that Jenna will never forget. “Happy birthday Gamps! Can’t wait to celebrate. Pictured here with one lucky girl who is named for our greatest love,” Jenna captions a photo of the two back in 2017.

Jenna also made sure to give Poppy a special shoutout on TODAY with Hoda & Jenna in honor of her birthday. “It is a special day in my household because it is also my daughter Poppy’s fifth birthday. So, happy birthday to my little Pops. I’m going to be home to you very soon. The birthday fairy — it was me — already left her a little cereal, but I love that girl,” Jenna says.

Happy birthday, Poppy!
