Hoda's daughter is named Haley Joy Kotb. While calling into the Today show earlier this week, Hoda revealed the special meaning behind her little girl's moniker.
"Haley is because of Halley’s Comet,” she told co-stars Kathie Lee Gifford and Jenna Bush Hager. "It was one of those things where I just picture her sailing through the sky."
Hoda revealed her sister, Hala, also helped pick Haley's name. "My sister and I were talking on the phone and she was saying, 'You know, I’m Hala, you’re Hoda, our niece is Hana — what about Haley?'"
As for Haley's sweet middle name? That was a bit easier for Hoda to choose. "Joy, just because she brings us joy," the proud new mom said. "She’s got a beautiful way about her."

It seems she did! Since Haley has Kotb as her last name, we can infer Hoda adopted the baby girl as a single mom.

No, but Hoda does have a serious boyfriend. She's been dating NYC financier Joel Schiffman — who has an adult daughter of his own, Kyle, from a previous marriage — since 2013 and the pair moved into Hoda's apartment last year.
Hoda has been married once. She previously tied the knot with University of New Orleans tennis coach Burzis Kanga in 2005, but they later divorced in 2007 after just two years of marriage.

We don't know! When Hoda's co-star Savannah Guthrie welcomed Baby No. 2 in early December 2016, she received around three months of maternity leave, so we can assume Hoda will get a similar amount of time off.
Congrats again to Hoda on the adoption of her adorable baby girl!
