Hoda Kotb adopts a second daughter at 54

Hoda Kotb adopts another baby girl and can't wait to share the joy

Hoda Kotb announced some very special news on Tuesday's "Today" show. "It's a girl", Kotb said cheerfully over the phone about her daughter, whom she secretly adopted, Hope Catherine Kotb. "And we named her middle name Catherine after my best friend Karen, her daughter - I think you guys know that her husband passed a little while ago, and Catherine is so super strong".

Congratulations to Hoda Kotb who has adopted her second child.

When Haley first met her sister, Kotb explained: "We'd been telling her, 'Baby Hope's coming, ' and she literally walked up to her and looked at her and she goes, 'Hope!'"

Kotb gave a sly hint that baby Hope was on the way Monday via a message posted to her Twitter account that read simply, "Choose Hope".

"Hoda's a momma again. I'm so happy she's here", she told her colleagues through happy tears.

"Joel and I were standing there when they hand you the baby", Kotb said. "He's just everything." In a separate interview with Andy Cohen, she added, "I'm going to be with Joel until my last breath - I know that". "It's fantastic. I can't believe it's happening!" The news anchor had all but given up on having a child.

"One of the things in my life I've always wanted was to be a mom", Kotb told People in 2017. "Sometimes in your life, things just don't work out for whatever reason, so you say, 'Well, I wasn't meant to have that.' But it was really hard to come to terms with it".

What an adorable, memorable moment for the show - and more importantly, what a wonderful addition to Hoda's loving little family! You think that you're full, " she said. Haley Joy was born on Valentine's Day. But one day I was sitting with my boyfriend and I said to him, 'I'm going to have to talk to you about something because I can't push it down anymore, push it away.' I said, 'Don't answer now.
