In the months following Hoda Kotb's surprise announcement that she adopted a baby girl named Haley Joy Kotb many people have been wondering — is the TV star married?
Though Hoda has been dating her NYC financier boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, since 2013, it seems she adopted baby Haley as a single mom. Joel — who moved into Hoda's NYC apartment last year — has an adult daughter of his own, Kyle, from a previous marriage.

Hoda is not married today but she has hinted she's open to tying the knot again in the future! "I've gone down that road once, so I would've normally said definitely not, so the fact that I'm saying I don't know is saying something," she said in a previous interview.

"Joel is the right person [for me]," Hoda once revealed. "I do feel like he is the last one. He showed me that anything is possible.”
"My last risky move, and I don't call it a risky move anymore, was falling in love. There is something about the later-in-life portion of the program. You meet someone and you think to yourself, 'Wow, I didn't know I could feel like this at my age,'" Hoda continued.

"But, you know what, how about this — instead of telling you, I'm going to show you something. Do you have a picture you can put up for me?"
