Hoda Kotb's got her another sweetpea and she's as happy as can be!

Today show host Hoda Kotb adopted her second baby girl, and she announced the exciting news over the phone on Tuesday during the show. "About a week ago, I'm changing her and I'm putting her down for bed and I say, 'Haley do you know what my favorite time of the day is?' And she looked at me and she goes, 'Right now.' And I thought that night time is so intimate and so special. Like, I'm sitting here and, you know, you think that maybe you have gotten what you deserve, but man, I'm so happy she is here".

"It's a girl! And her name is Hope!"

OnePlus 7 launch date to be revealed tomorrow, hints CEO Pete Lau
It seems like the OnePlus 7 Pro will get the pop-up selfie camera, which has been leaked in several images in the past. However, for the first time in the company's history, it looks like there will be more than one variant of the phone.

Jenna Bush Hager will be the new co-host of "Today's" Fourth Hour alongside Hoda Kotb beginning in April, when Kathie Lee Gifford leaves the morning show. Baby Hope joins Hoda's two-year-old daughter, Hayley Joy Kotb, whom she also adopted, in February 2017. "She was literally marching around saying, 'I'm a big sister!'" "I just felt it and I dialed the number, and [a woman from the adoption agency] answered the phone and she said, 'She's here'". "I can't believe it's happening, y'all". The news anchor had all but given up on having a child. "Joel and I were standing there when they hand you the baby", she recalled.

What an adorable, memorable moment for the show - and more importantly, what a wonderful addition to Hoda's loving little family! "I said, 'Think about it for a day or a week or whatever.' And he said, 'I don't need a day". "We hoped and prayed about this".
