Hoda Kotb is officially a mom times two!

The "Today" show co-anchor revealed she adopted a second child.

"She was literally marching around saying, 'I'm a big sister!"' Back in 2017 the 54-year-old adopted her first child and even announced it in a similar way.

"They said to me at the adoption agency, 'Don't worry, your child is out there waiting for you.' And I remember I would scribble in my journal, 'I know you're there.' I could feel her".

"We had Hayley downstairs, and Joel [Schiffman, Hoda's boyfriend of three years] and I were like, 'Wait; we have a present!' So we went upstairs, and came down holding her". "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".

Hoda gave the joyful news to her work family over a phone interview that soon turned into an emotional conversation. Hope Catherine joins 2-year-old sister Haley Joy. She says Haley wanted to feed Hope raspberries for breakfast. "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'".

"Joel and I were standing there when they hand you the baby - and it's the closest thing to a live birth I think you'll ever see - [and] in that moment I was like, 'My God.' My heart just grew 10 times, it's awesome", she said about her experience with her boyfriend Joel Schiffman. You think that you're full. "That's really the way it is, '" the star said. "It felt nearly selfish", Kotb explained.
