Hoda Kotb just became a mom.
The co-anchor of the fourth hour of the Today show anchor has adopted a daughter named Haley Joy Kotb, she announced during Today on Tuesday.
Haley was born Feb. 14 — "a Valentine's baby," Kotb said.
Cut to a photo of Kotb holding the baby. "That little girl, Haley Joy," Kotb said, struggling to get the words out through her tears, "is my daughter."
Haley is the 52-year-old Kotb's first child with boyfriend Joel Schiffman.
Kotb's Today co-stars showed her love on Twitter.
