Jenna Bush Hager has been candid about her daughter Mila’s harsh criticism of her appearance, saying the nine-year-old has pointed out her gray hair and told her she “looks better with makeup.”
Today’s host, 40, was chatting with her co-host Hoda Kotb on the show earlier this week when she shared a recent conversation with her oldest child after coming home from a business trip to Scotland.
“I think I’m quite attractive. I feel good about myself, but one of my kids is always checking on me,” Bush Hager explained of Mila, saying she “fixes all my flaws.”

The mother, who also has a younger daughter, Poppy, seven, and son, Hal, three, said she was “so excited” to see her kids after returning from Scotland, but the heartwarming reunion took a surprising turn .
Bush Hager recalled how Mila gave her a big hug before taking on her appearance.
“Immediately she looked a little bit back and looked at me and said, ‘Oh, you’re right Mom,'” she said. ‘And I’m like, ‘I’m right about what?’ And she says, “You? to do look better in makeup.”‘

The mom tried to navigate the situation when Mila pointed out “those red things” on her face and again suggested putting on makeup
Kotb got a kick out of Mila’s brutal honesty and laughed as Bush Hager continued her story.
“I was like, ‘Mila, I don’t think I said I look better with makeup.’ And [my husband] Henry is looking a bit,’ said the former first daughter.
And she says, ‘Well, what are those red things? [on your face]and I said, “The red stuff?” She said, “Maybe, you know, let’s come over for lunch, but I think you should put some makeup on.”‘
Bush Hager took the comments about her looks to heart, but she noted that Mila also had some thoughts about her gray roots that she had no problem sharing.
Bush Hager added that her eldest daughter also insisted on ‘doing something about those grays’ when she recently started working out
“I’m just thinking where did it come from?” the former first daughter said:

‘By the way, I had my hair up, I was working out recently. She just walked by and said, “You have to do something about those grays,” she said.
Kotb found Mila’s behavior particularly funny because it is “the opposite” of how her opponent behaves.
“I’m just thinking where did it come from?” Bush Hager agreed.
Kotb shares two daughters of her own — Haley, five, and Hope, three — with her ex-fiancé, Joel Schiffman, and she said she recently got a similar dose of honesty from her youngest child.

Kotb, who has daughters Haley, five, and Hope, three, said she recently received a similar dose of honesty from her youngest child.
Today’s co-anchor said Hope thought her nose looked broken and asked, “Will mine ever be broken like that?”
“We were very close because I was away, I was in England,” she explained. “I came back, and we had a special date, and she says, ‘Your nose is broken.’ I go, “What?” She says, “Look at the top, it’s broken.”
Hope then asked, “Is mine ever going to break like this?”
Kotb assured her that her nose wasn’t broken, but the little girl wasn’t convinced.
The mother then imitated her young daughter pointing to her nose and saying, “Yes, it’s Mommy. Look here.’
