That’s what friends are for! Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager both star on Today, but when they’re off the air, they’re both moms — to daughters no less! Jenna is a mom to Mila, 5, and Poppy, 3, while Hoda is a mom to adopted daughter Haley, 23 months.
The women act like sisters, so it’s no surprise their daughters do as well. On the Thursday, Jan. 10 episode of the talk show, the TV personalities revealed they share hand-me-downs with eachother.
“That’s what I love about Jenna,” Hoda, 54, confessed. “She shows up with a grocery bag, paper, full of — there’s like one shoe in there, some clothes.”
“Some of it’s good!” Jenna, 37, added. “I love a hand-me-down!”
The funniest part? Poppy once recoginzed that Haley was wearing a former outfit of hers! Hoda recently posted a video to Instagram on Haley singing “Chinese Boxes” by Kim Richey wearing a navy blue and white striped dress, curtesty of Jenna. “They said, ‘Oh, I want to see!'” Jenna shared of her girls’ reactions when the video started playing. So she showed it to them. “And Poppy goes, ‘Poppy’s dress!'” Too funny!
Hoda adopted her daughter with boyfriend Joel Schiffman in February 2017, and ever since, she’s been loving being a mom to her little girl. “Motherhood is — it’s the best job I have ever had in my life, ever,” Hoda shared with Closer Weekly in a previous interview.
During another recent interview with Thrive Global Podcast, she further gushed about motherhood. “I think when Haley arrived, I didn’t have any doubt in that belief, but when Haley arrived, it was personified,” she admitted. “Literally, when I watch her now, I just feel like she’s proof of everything. Like, everything. Yeah. She’s the best!”
