Hoda Kotb is sharing her festive cheer with co-worker Al Roker. What better way to do that than with kids.


Kotb shared a heartwarming photo of co-anchor Roker holding Kotb's adopted daughter Haley. The photo is found below.

The picture date also marked the show's 40th anniversary which was December 14. Kotb works as an anchor on NBC's "The Morning Show."

Roker works on another segment of the show. But the two have an admirable bond between them.

In the heartwarming photo, Roker securely held baby Haley in a cradle position with both his arms. He looked down at her with a wide grin.


Kotb captioned the post:

"Al... you always show up for life.. thx for loving Haley .. happy 40th anniversary xx"

Kotb, 54, adopted the child in December 2017. Her partner, Joel Schiffman, is 58 years old. Kotb is unable to have children herself.


Yet the way the pair welcomed their new baby girl is just as loving and pure as any natural parents. Co-anchors Roker and Savannah have also embraced the young girl.

Haley's birthday is on Valentine's day, making her 22 months to date. She is lucky to be surrounded by such supportive and loving people in her life.


Back in July 2018, Kotb also shared some sweet photos of Haley as they celebrated their first Fourth of July together. The then 17-month-old wore a blue dress with multi-colored tassels for the event.


A short clip from the occasion showed the big girl waving an American flag as she stood on a sidewalk. At the time, "Today" show co-host Jenna Bush Hager complimented the toddler's fabulous fashion.

Kotb, who is a cancer survivor, has been with the network for over 20 years. She was given her new role as a replacement of Matt Lauer. She continues to inspire others by reaching new levels in life.
