WATCH: ‘Today Show’ Host Hoda Kotb Adopts a Baby Girl

Hoda Kotb is a mom.

The Today anchor made the announcement on NBC’s morning show Tuesday via phone to viewers and a table full of her colleagues.

“I do have something to tell you,” Kotb, 52, began, “but how about this? Instead of telling you, I’m going to show you something.”

A picture of Kotb beaming while holding a newborn then appeared on screen to applause.

“That little girl, Haley Joy – I’m crying, I’m crying,” Kotb shared, “is my daughter. I adopted her.”
