Late last month, Kotb anounced on Today that she adopted a baby girl, when she shared a photo of herself cradling Haley. "She is the love of my life," she said during an emotional phone call on-air.

Kotb later revealed Schiffman's initial reaction when she told him she wanted to adopt a child during an interview with People. "I was afraid to even say it out loud, because then it felt so real," she admitted. "I said, 'Think about it for a day or a week or whatever.' And he said, 'I don't need a day. Let's get this journey going.' At that point I blubbered like a baby. It was like the dam burst."

"Haley will call him dad," she added of the 58-year-old financier.

And Haley has already spent plenty of time with Kotb's Today show family, including Al Roker, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie.
