Now that Hoda Kotb is a mom to an adopted baby girl Haley Joy Kotb, many fans have been wondering: Is the TV star married?

The answer is no — not yet! Hoda has been dating her NYC financier boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, since 2013, and the two parent little Haley together. And on Wednesday, March 22, she expressed how much she loves her man by giving him a sweet 60th birthday shout-out with a new selfie. "Happy birthday handsome!" she captioned the cute Instagram pic.

Hoda and Joel — who moved into Hoda's NYC apartment in 2016 — have been the epitome of relationship goals for the past five years, but before that, they were both married to other people. Kathie Lee Gifford's BFF was previously hitched to University of New Orleans tennis coach Burzis Kanga from 2005 until their 2007 divorce. Joel was also married once before, and has an adult daughter named Kyle.

And even though Hoda and Joel aren't currently engaged, Hoda has hinted she's open to saying "I do" 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." Hoda continued, "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.'"

And in a recent exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, a source revealed that Joel and Hoda are finally talking about marriage. "Hoda can’t stop pinching herself. She says life couldn’t get any better than it is right now, but she’s going to try."

The two are currently planning their nuptials as well. "Hoda and Joel talk about having a low-key ceremony in Nantucket, where they love spending time," revealed the insider. And the event will be star-studded, as you could imagine. "Of course Kathie Lee [Gifford], Savannah [Guthrie] and her Today family would attend," a source told Life & Style. We can't wait for the big day!
