Is there anything sweeter than seeing a beautiful baby girl?

Hoda Kotb would most likely agree! The new mom broke the news on Today that she’d recently adopted a baby girl.

The 52-year-old Today anchor adopted her daughter, Haley Joy, after the little one was born on February 14, 2017 — a sweet little Valentine’s Day bundle!

Hoda broke the news after she’d been visibly absent from Today for over a week. But she hadn’t been quiet on social media. She posted several inspirational pictures and quotes on Instagram, and finally, they all make sense.

She called into the morning show on February 21 to break the wonderful news with the help of her co-host Kathie Lee Gifford.

Though Kathie herself admitted that she has the biggest mouth, she managed to keep Hoda’s secret under lock and key!

Hoda confessed during her call to the show that her daughter is the love of her life. She could not possibly have sounded happier!

Her fellow anchors were all thrilled for the new mom and shared their excitement on the show and on social media after the episode aired.

Hoda called back during the fourth hour of the show to explain that she picked her daughter’s name after Halley’s comet.

This seems to be the year for babies, if George and Amal Clooney’s announcement is anything to go by. How surprised were you to learn that Hoda had adopted?
