The funniest present at Jenna Bush's baby shower

Jenna Bush Hager is getting big and round with her very first bebe, and her Today co-workers threw her a special book-themed shower with one eyebrow-raising gift.

Mama Laura Bush was a librarian: maybe that's why Jenna Bush Hager loves books so much that her Today co-workers threw her a special book-themed baby shower.

The former first daughter (along with sister Barbara Bush), is expecting her first child in May with husband Henry Hager; her NBC co-workers at Today celebrated by giving her a party at an NYC studio, People reports.

But instead of bringing diaper cakes and dear little baby sweaters, the NBC staff conspired to each bring a favorite children's book, each inscribed with parenting advice from the giver.

Former co-anchor Meredith Vieira contributed Bear Goes On a Hunt and the advice to "get a nap anytime you can." For her part, Hoda Kotb advised Bush Hager to just do whatever her own mother did.

Double aww!

Today's producer Jackie Levin contributed the naughtiest book: Something for mom rather than baby. Bush Hager greeted her new copy of Fifty Shades of Grey with, "That's baby number two material."

Luckily, Bush Hager's parents weren't present to get tongue-tied by their daughter getting a smutty book.

Bush Hager told People that her mother, former First Lady Laura Bush, came to help put her child's sea foam-green nursery together; the family chose a neutral color because they don't know whether the baby is a boy or a girl.

Bush Hager also said that her dad, former President George W. Bush, painted several murals on the baby's wall: One of the Hager's cat, Bernadette, a landscape with a small tree from the Bush's ranch in Texas and the spot on the ranch where the Hagers were married in 2008.

That one's called "Goodnight Moon," Bush Hager told People. "He's becoming an artiste. There's a whole new side of him and he's so excited about the baby."
