TODAY show co-host Hoda Kotb has adopted a bouncing baby girl. The 52-year-old Egyptian news anchor posted an Instagram photo of her new baby girl on Tuesday, Feb. 21.
In the caption, she stated she adopted a daughter named Haley Joy, and that the infant was born on Valentine’s Day.
“She’s a Valentine’s baby,” gushed Hoda during a phone call to her breakfast show colleagues to announce her happy news. “She is the love of my life.”
Hoda didn’t mention the infant’s race or nationality, but it appears from the picture that the newborn might be black or mixed race.
Hoda, who was previously married, lives in New York with her financier partner Joel Schiffman, whom she’s dated since 2013.
Haley is her only child.
