Hoda Kotb Returns to 'Today' After Maternity Leave
The 52-year-old morning show anchor adopted the baby girl with her partner Joel Schiffman.
Hoda said that she was a “mess” and nervous to be back on the air. “I’m scared to be sitting here. I’m a little afraid that I might explode into tears,” she said.
In a pre-taped segment, Hoda opened up about being a new mom.
“You think that by a certain stage in your life, I’ve had every experience I’m going to have,’and then all of a sudden she shows up,” she said. “I felt like, in my life, I’ve had joy beyond what I could imagine, but this is beyond like a dream. Like you have your dreams, and then this.”
“I’ve never believed at love at first sight until now,” Hoda added.
