Hoda Kotb is winning hearts all over again and this time, her news is better than anyone ever imagined!
On April 16, she made the grand announcement that she had welcomed a second daughter into the family. In February 2017, Hoda thrilled fans across the globe with she introduced her first daughter, Haley.
Being a mother is something in which she’d always dreamed, so for this to become a reality for her was almost more emotional than she could bear. Since earning the well-deserved title of “Mom,” she knew she wanted to continue to expand their joyous crew.
Her littlest blessing is named Hope Catherine, a name that signifies exactly what she added to the family - more hope.
“You hope, you pray, you dream about things, and we thought about Hope. And we named her middle name 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,” Hoda stated.
Needless to say, the new big sister is utterly over-the-moon with the new baby in the house! “She was literally marching around saying, ‘I’m a big sister!’” Hoda told.
She may not be going about motherhood by traditional standards, but she’s thriving at her role and loving every single moment of the journey, no matter how unconventional.
“I think the thing we all need to know [is] when your child arrives for you, that child is right on time. So your time may be when you are in your 30s or in your 40s or in your 500s, but your child is right on time,” she brilliantly said.
Congratulations, Mama! Your babies are absolutely beautiful!
