No more Winesdays for Hoda Kotb—at least not right now. 

While we know the NBC co-anchor enjoys sipping from a stemmed glass during her hour on Today alongside Kathie Lee Gifford, the new mom has started a new chapter in her life with a new kind of cup. 

"Let's hear it for caffeine!!!!" the journalist quipped on Instagram while holding every new parent's favorite accessory—a coffee mug!—in her hand. "Love the new mugs mom."

It was just days ago that the 52-year-old television star revealed she had adopted her first child, a newborn baby girl named Haley Joy Kotb. She proudly shared the happy news with her colleagues live on air on Tuesday. 

"She's a Valentine's baby," the elated mama said while phoning into Today. "She is the love of my life."

In regard to the baby's name, Kotb revealed her celestial inspiration for the moniker—Halley's comet. 

"It was one of those things. I just picture her sailing through the sky," Hoda gushed during a phone call to Gifford on Tuesday." The reason for the baby's middle name was equally special. 

"She brings us joy," she added. "She's got a beautiful way about her."

In the midst of all that joy, she and partner Joel Schiffman appear to be experiencing the early hours and late nights connected to a brand new baby. 

As Carson Daly joked to Kotb upon hearing the news, "You thought you drank a lot of wine before? Just wait!"

So far, it just looks like plenty of coffee!
