Hoda Kotb is now the proud parent of two.

It's a girl! "TODAY" star Hoda Kotb announced on the show that she's now the mother of TWO adorable little girls after adopting another daughter.

Kotb adopted Haley Joy in 2017. "She is laying on the Boppy pillow right now, I'm feeding her and I can't believe it. Look - in life you think maybe you've gotten what you deserve, but, man, I'm so happy she is here". The newborn's name is Hope Catherine.

There was barely a dry eye in the room on Tuesday morning as the Today family learned they had gained a new pint-sized member as Kotb shared the special news over the phone.

Hope Catherine joins big sister Haley Joy, now 2 years old, whom Kotb adopted after a battle with breast cancer left her unable to conceive.
