Hoda, 57, gasped in shock and said, “And they were the same age.”

The former first lady, who turned 75 last week, is actually four months younger than her husband, who celebrated his milestone birthday in July.

“In her thirties, she was considered a spinster who wasn’t married, but he was a suitable bachelor, so I think it’s always been there,” Jenna said of the double standard.

The former first daughter was reminded of the story as she and Hoda chatted about Sarah Jessica Parker’s recent comments to Fashion.

The Sex and the City star had responded to the negative social media comments she and her co-stars received while filming the show’s upcoming sequel, And Just Like That…

“There’s so much misogynistic chatter in response to us that would never happen. To happen. As regards. A. Man,” the actress told the magazine.

“Gray hair, gray hair, gray hair. Does she have gray hair?” I’m with Andy Cohen and he’s got a full head of gray hair, and he’s exquisite. Why is it okay for him? I don’t know what to tell you folks.’

Hoda agreed that things need to change, and she thinks the younger generation will be the ones to do that.

“I really don’t think the cool young kids have it,” she said.
