‘Today Show’ Host Hoda Kotb Adopts Baby Girl

Today - Season 2012

Hoda Kotb really can keep a secret—she adopted a baby girl, Haley Joy just a week ago. The first time mother shared the good news with her friends on the Today Show this morning. She’s a Valentine’s baby so she’s a little nugget,” Hoda, said in a phone call to her Today Show family. “She is the love of my life!”

Kathie Lee, Hoda’s co-host was excited to finally be able to share the news, “I’ve got the biggest mouth in the world and I’ve said zilch. Hoda, we are thrilled for you, sweetheart. You were made to be a mom.” Matt Lauer later added, “This is such fantastic news. This little girl, Haley, is the luckiest girl on the planet. You are going to be one of the most fantastic moms I can ever imagine.”

Congrats on the new addition!
