Hoda Kotb hasn’t been on the Today show for the past week, a fact that Matt Lauer brought up brought up on Tuesday morning, saying he wanted to go “off the script” for just a few minutes.
First, he shared a quote that Hoda had recently posted on Insagram:
“And suddenly you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”
Then he called her so she could make an announcement on the air . . . she showed a picture of herself holding a sweet baby girl, telling everyone that she had adopted little Haley, who was born on Valentine’s day.
