“It was a very secret wedding, a little bit like my elusive sister,” Barbara’s twin sister, Jenna Bush Hager, co-host of “Today with Hoda & Jenna” shared at the time, the show noted. “But also, just family in a place that means family love, and it was just beautiful.”

Cora becomes the fourth grandchild for Bush and former first lady Laura Bush, as her sister, Jenna has three children, Mila, Poppy and Henry, with husband, Henry Hager.
