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.

Kotb called in to the show to make the announcement. She told her co-anchors, including Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Kathie Lee Gifford, that "I'm going to show you something."

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.

And Kotb herself posted a very sweet inspirational quote.

Kotb will be back to work later this week.
