Hoda Kotb is a new mom!
The 52-year-old Today star has adopted a baby girl whose name is Haley Joy Kotb, she announced on Tuesday, Feb. 21.
"I do have something to tell you," Hoda told her Today co-stars while calling into the hit morning show on Tuesday. "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?"
As the first photo of Hoda holding her adorable infant daughter flashed across the screen she exclaimed, "It's a baby girl!"
"That little girl, Haley Joy… I'm crying… is my daughter!" Hoda said while holding back tears on the phone. "I adopted her."
"She's a [Valentine's Day] baby, so she's a little nugget… She is the love of my life," she continued.
"Do you know how hard it has been to keep this secret?! I've got the biggest mouth in the world and I've said zilch!" Hoda's Today co-host Kathie Lee Gifford said.
"You know what's funny you guys, my mom is here with me — she just got here a couple of days ago — my mom goes, 'Hello, Miss Haley, we've waited so long for you,'" Hoda said.
"This little girl Haley is the luckiest girl," Matt Lauer chimed in. "You’re going to be one of the most fantastic moms I can ever imagine."
"We are thrilled for you. You were made to be a mom," Kathie Lee added.
"You’re going to be an incredible mother. You thought you drank a lot of wine before? Just wait," joked Today star Carson Daly.
Last year, Hoda similarly revealed on Today that she moved in with her NYC financier boyfriend, Joel Schiffman. The two have been dating since 2013.
The TV star was previously married to former University of New Orleans tennis coach Burzis Kanga from 2005 until 2007.
We couldn't be happier for Hoda on her cuter than cute new addition!
