Happy Mother's Day, Hoda Kotb!
The 52-year-old Today show star celebrated her first Mother's Day as a new mama by posting the sweetest Instagram snapshot of her mom, Sameha Kotb, and her baby daughter, Haley Joy Kotb, snuggling on the couch!
"Happy Mother's Day! May you spend yours in your jammies like my mom and my little girl," Hoda captioned the pic of Haley and her grandma.
"Those cheeks! So precious, Hoda," one of the TV star's 548,000 Instagram followers commented on the pic with another adding, "Happy 1st Mother's Day! Adorable, precious baby, so cute! Enjoy the moment! So happy for you!"
In mid-February, Hoda announced Haley's surprise adoption during a call into the Today show. "It's a baby girl! That little girl, Haley Joy Kotb… I'm crying… is my daughter! I adopted her," she said at the time.
During a recent interview with Closer Weekly, the journalist gushed motherhood is the "best job" she's ever had.
"I have had a lot of great moments in my life and there is nothing that even compares one-tenth to what this is," Hoda exclusively told Closer. "It is as if — there is that saying, I was blind but now I see. You cannot believe what you have been missing until it’s in your eyes."
Hoda's BFF and Today co-star Kathie Lee Gifford, 63, has also made her transition into new motherhood super easy. "I knew that she would be the greatest mother in the world," Kathie Lee told Closer. "I used to say to her all of the time, Hoda, my God, you were made to be a mom. She is so loving anyway and that is all children need is just unconditional love."
"If anything is a perfect fit, this is… Nothing felt more right than her in my arms," Hoda recently said of her daughter. "I must have had a tiny hole in my heart that Haley filled perfectly."
