The 53-year-old anchor surprised fans last month with her adoption announcement after a battle with breast cancer left her unable to conceive.

"That little girl, Haley Joy -- I'm crying -- is my daughter," an emotional Kotb said during a phone call on Today late last month. "I adopted her, and you can hear her, that's her crying. She's a Valentine’s baby. She's a little nugget. She is the love of my life."

Gifford gushed at the time, “Do you know how hard it has been to keep this secret? I’ve got the biggest mouth!"

Kotb's picture-perfect newborn was born on Valentine's Day, and Gifford, 63, is the latest member of the Today show crew to meet her, following co-workers Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira and Al Roker.

"I wake up sometimes and go, 'Oh my God, I have a baby!'" Kotb recently told People. "But it feels totally real. I guess if you've been waiting this long for something, and you wish for it, pray for it, hope for it, wonder if it will ever be, and then it happens, nothing’s more real. Nothing."
