Joining Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer, the 52-year-old TV personality excitedly shared what life's been like since adopting daughter Haley Joy in February. "I think that by a certain stage in your life you think you have had every experience you are going to have -- but then she shows up," Kotb shared, tearing up. "This is beyond a dream, like, you have your dreams, and then this."
"I never believed in love at first site until now," she added. "She was the missing puzzle piece. I was scared to hold her but then when they put her in my arms, she fit perfectly."
While she was on a two-month maternity leave, several of Kotb's morning show co-hosts visited her and Haley. When Gifford went to see the mother-daughter duo, Kotb could barely contain herself. Sharing sweet photos from the visit, she wrote: "My girl met my girl and my face exploded!"
