Today Show Co-Anchor Hoda Kotb Reveals She’s Adopted Her Second Child

Hoda surprised her Today co-hosts during Tuesday’s episode by announcing she adopted another daughter, Hope Catherine, with boyfriend Joel Schiffman.

She shared photos and details about her baby girl in an interview with Savannah Guthrie and her other co-hosts. She also has a 2-year-old daughter Haley Joy, whom she adopted in February 2017.

“I’m feeding her and I can’t believe it,” the star said of Hope. “I’m so happy she’s here!”

“This morning at breakfast [Haley] was trying to feed her raspberries and I was like, ‘Not yet, babe,'” she added. “She was literally marching around saying, ‘I’m a big sister!'”


Even though news on the adoption just broke this morning, the star actually gave a huge hint yesterday, when she posted this on her Instagram:
