Hollywood star reveals pictures of her newborn daughter and we are all melting.
She is known by her role as a talk show host on Today, and now she is finally sharing pictures of her daughter. Hoda Kotb was unable to have a child after a battle with cancer, and now she is sharing her emotional and beautiful story of adoption.
Kotb spoke with PEOPLE exclusively to share all of the details of the story and it has us all in tears. Three weeks ago she officially became a momma and she is GLOWING!
The 52 year old show host shared with all of her fans at the end of February that she adopted. We were so excited to hear that Haley Joy Kotb was born on Feb. 14.
“She’s a Valentine’s baby,” Kotb gushed, calling in to the NBC morning show to announce the big news. “She is the love of my life.”
After finally having baby girl in her arms Kotb said that she had to ask her mother to come help her. She was there for the first two weeks to help Kotb with the big life changing adjustment. After her mother left her, she had to start reaching out to babysitters to make sure that she could get some things done.
“I said, Can you just come here and watch, and if I need to go to the pediatrician, will you tell me?’” Kotb says in this week’s issue of PEOPLE.
She is adjusting great to all of the changes too! Kotb admitted that she will drag an air mattress to sleep next to the baby’s bed at night.
Not only that, but she says that the lack of sleep doesn’t bother her. She has dreamed of this day and she wants to do the “whole thing.”
“For now, I just really want to do the whole thing,” says Kotb, who doesn’t mind the loss of sleep. “I’m not sleeping, and I don’t even care.”
This is so beautiful!! Congrats HODA!!
