Hoda Kotb’s Former Fiance Joel Schiffman Is a Loving Dad! Everything to Know About the Financier

Hoda Kotb and her former fiancé, Joel Schiffman, went through a lot together. The Today star and Joel are the parents of their two young kids, Haley Joy and Hope Catherine, and were previously engaged.

Hoda and Joel had been a couple since 2013 and started their family together when they adopted their first child, Haley, in 2017. They expanded their brood when they adopted their second daughter, Hope, in 2019. Joel and Hoda announced their split in January 2022.

“Joel and I have had a lot of prayerful and meaningful conversations over the holidays and we decided that we are better as friends and parents than we are as an engaged couple, so we decided we are going to start this new year on our new path as loving parents to our adorably delightful children and as friends,” she revealed during the third hour of Today.
