Barbara Pierce Bush is the daughter of former POTUS George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush. The 40-year-old and husband Craig Coyne welcomed Cora Georgia six weeks early in September last year. Barbara recently shared a series of photos during her visit to TODAY on Tuesday to discuss a new children’s book, The Superpower Sisterhood, that she co-wrote with sister Jenna Bush Hager.

Speaking of her baby's delivery, Barbara said on Tuesday, "We were totally unprepared. I thought I was going to have her in New York, and my husband and I were in Maine that weekend. I woke up at 4 in the morning and went into labor." The baby was born prematurely and was in the neonatal intensive care unit for nearly four weeks. "I went every day to hold the baby in the hospital,” Laura Bush said. According to her sister Jenna, Barbara is a natural when it comes to being a mom. “We like to laugh," Jenna said on TODAY when describing her and Barbara's sisterhood. "We want to find joy in life, and whenever I feel kind of down, I call Barbara—she's joyful. She's fun to be around. But also our parents did something right. They made us make sure that we support each other."
Among the pictures, in one image, the baby is seen cradled by her mom and in another, the family took the infant to the beach. There were several other pictures including a few with Cora's famous grandparents, former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush.
Barbara also shared pictures of George W. Bush, 75, in a cute side-by-side that show the former POTUS and his granddaughter both wearing sunglasses with PEOPLE. In another snap, Cora shows off a cute smile while wearing Christmas pajamas.

"It's been incredible. It's been better than I even thought it would be," Barbara previously told PEOPLE about welcoming her daughter. The experience was "incredibly meaningful" when the family learned that the NICU at the hospital in Portland was named after Barbara's late grandmother, former First Lady Barbara Bush, who passed away in 2018. "I went there to go visit her and looked over on the wall, and it said Barbara Bush Children's Hospital," Barbara recalled. "So, in many ways, it felt divine that she was born in Maine near where we were married and where we have so many memories as a family. Then I felt how poignant and meaningful it was in a place that meant something to my grandmother."
Barbara Bush was a great First Lady, a terrific advocate for literary programs and the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in Portland, and a strong woman who loved her family, the State of Maine, and our country. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/v320lXwqUy— Sen. Susan Collins (@SenatorCollins) April 18, 2018
