Today Show personality, Hoda Kotb shared a huge surprise with her co-workers and her fans when she announced on Tuesday morning that she adopted a baby girl just this month. Baby Haley Joy just over a week old. Only a few co-workers and family were in on the big surprise, including co-host Kathy Lee Gifford.
Kotb was quite emotional as she introduced the baby, “She’s a Valentine’s baby so she’s a little nugget. She is the love of my life!”
“She brings us joy. She’s got a beautiful way about her,” she said later in the call.
It’s interesting to note that Kotb’s social media was full of little teases, leading up to her big news on Tuesday. Check out this video of the live announcement and her co-workers’ stunned and happy reactions!
