Yet this isn’t the first time Hager has opened up about growing up in the public eye. Earlier this year, the NBC staple revealed how her famous father reacted after she was cited for both possession of alcohol as well as using a fake ID to purchase alcohol in only a few weeks while attending the University of Texas in 2001.
“When I called my dad to say, ‘I’m really sorry’ … he said, ‘No, I’m sorry.’” Hager recalled, stating that while they “did embarrass” their parents “they would never say that.”
“He said, ‘I’m sorry, I told you (that) you can be normal, and you can’t,’” she remembered of their discussion. “You can’t order margaritas.'”
