Hoda shared the exciting news via telephone with the show, excitedly announcing her two-year-old daughter, Haley Joy, has become a big sister after Kotb and husband Joel adopted a baby girl they have named Hope Catherine.
“You know what’s funny? You think that you’re full,” Hoda told her co-workers at Today. “That’s exactly how I felt with Haley and Joel and everything. Joel and I were standing there when they hand you the baby, and it’s the closest thing to a live birth you’ll ever see, but in that moment I was like, ‘Oh my God, my heart just grew.’”
“It’s amazing. I can’t believe it’s happening,” the 54-year-old gushed.
Hoda became a first-time mom after adopting Haley Joy in 2017.
Hoda gave her Instagram followers a subtle hint on Monday, sharing a message that simply read, “Choose Hope.”
