Hoda Kotb introduces newborn daughter Hope Catherine

17 April 2019

Hoda Kotb is giving fans a first glimpse of her newborn daughter. "Congratulations are in order for @hodakotb, who adopted a second little girl, Hope Catherine, this week", the caption read.

The 54-year-old mom of two shared an Instagram post on Monday that secretly hinted at the news.

Tuesday morning, she confirmed the newest addition to her family during an emotional phone call to the "Today" show. She named her new baby Hope Catherine Kotb, who joins big sister Haley Joy Kotb.

"My God, my heart just grew", she said of the moment they handed baby Hope to her.

Kotb said Haley's been trying to feed the baby and has proudly been announcing she's a big sister.

Of course, her colleagues on air were beyond moved by the news and inquired how Kotb's older daughter, Haley Joy Kotb, reacted to getting a sibling.

Sounds like Haley is going to be just fine when she starts to get the hang of this big sister thing! "But man, I'm so happy she's here".

"I can't imagine any of this happening", Kotb expressed. "In your life, you think that maybe you've gotten what you deserve".

"I'm feeding her and I can't believe it", the star said of Hope.

"Joel and I were standing there when they hand you the baby", Kotb said. I guess if you've been waiting this long for something, and you wish for it, pray for it, hope for it, wonder if it will ever be, and then it happens, nothing's more real. "In that moment I was like, my heart just grew!" You think that you're full. "It's awesome. I can't believe it's happening".
