Hearts bursting! Today Show co-anchor Hoda Kotb announced during Tuesday’s show that she has adopted a baby girl. Matt Lauer teased the announcement, noting that Kotb has been taking some time off from the show recently.
“I do have something to tell you, but you know what, how about this, instead of telling you, I’m going to show you something,” Kotb, 53, teased her co-anchors before sharing a picture of herself cradling her newborn baby girl.
“That little girl, Haley Joy -- I’m crying -- is my daughter,” an audibly emotional Kotb said. “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.”
