Hoda Kotb is shining extra bright!

Ever since the 52-year-old news anchor adopted daughter Haley Joy, she hasn't been able to stop smiling. She's been on maternity leave for two months, but the new mom will officially be returning to co-host Today on Monday, and fans can expect a lot of baby talk… and tears.

In a preview clip that will air next week, Kotb gets emotional while talking about her little bundle of joy.

"When I look at her, I see forever," Kotb says, with tears in her eyes. "I see past me. I see the future which I guess I never saw."

"I want her to know that she is loved by me, by my family and by everyone who's held her," she continues. "There's certainly no doubt about that. I don't think she's going to know what to do with all the love."

And if you take one look at Kotb's Instagram, you wouldn't doubt that for a second. Her feed is filled with adorable snapshots of little Haley, cuddled up next to her family, friends and colleagues. See below!
