Hoda Kotb returned to her second home Monday morning.
At 7:30, Hoda joined Today's Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer on-air for the first time since announcing on Feb. 21 that she had adopted a daughter, Haley Joy Kotb. "It's everything," she said of motherhood. Hoda added that she would regularly tune in to see her colleagues work when she was on maternity leave. "I saw everybody," she said, "and I'm blubbering like a baby."
Fans lined the plaza to herald Hoda's return.
