The 52-year-old mom captioned the pic, “Just because.” The TV personality first announced that she had adopted on the Today show back in February. “That little girl, Haley Joy -- I’m crying -- is my daughter,” an audibly emotional Kotb said at the time. “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.” Since then, Kotb has shared the occasional pic of her baby girl with her fans on social media.
