Today show host Hoda Kotb has added to her family.
She called into the program Tuesday morning to announce she has adopted another child. Kotb said, "It's a girl! And her name is Hope." The full name is Hope Catherine Kotb.
Kotb explained the name saying, "You hope, you pray, you dream about things, and we thought about Hope. And we named her middle name Catherine after my best friend Karen, her daughter — I think you guys know that her husband passed a little while ago, and Catherine is so super strong.”
A picture shows Kotb holding the baby and her 2-year-old daughter Hailey smiling at the camera.
