A BEAUTIFUL CELEBRATION
Kotb started the day set apart to celebrate mothers awesomely. Her partner, Joel Schiffman, and her daughters surprised her with a bouquet of roses and a handmade card.The card has the words "Happy Mother's Day Mama! We came from mama's heart. Love Haley + Hope."
The words touched the television host to her core, and she wrote alongside a picture of the roses and card on Instagram "Melting," with heart emojis.
Kotb's followers shared in her joy, wishing her a " Happy Mothers Day celebration," and referring to her as “A great and loving mum." Other comments described the picture as "So beautiful" and "So sweet and precious."
THE MORE THE MERRIER
The mother-of-two was not the only one to celebrate the day. Her "Today" co-hosts Jenna Bush Hager, and Savannah Guthrie also joined in on the celebrations. Bush Hager shared a photo of herself, mother, and her maternal grandmother, who passed last Friday on Instagram.
The former first daughter and mother-of-two wrote that she is lucky to have the same name as the woman who taught her to slow down and appreciate life.

Waking up thinking of my precious namesake, Jenna Welch who passed away Friday. How lucky I was to be named after a woman who taught me how to slow down and appreciate every bird, and every plant in West Texas. She read us poetry and taught us about every constellation in the sky. Her kindness and graciousness were as expansive as the West Texas horizon. So happy she’s reunited with her great love, our Pa after almost 25-years apart. Thinking of my mama too who lost her little mama right before Mother’s Day.
Guthrie shared a picture of her two children and mother, and she wrote alongside it that the woman who gave birth to her is the best mum, grandma, and best human being. Other celebrities equally joined in the messages. Alexis Ohanian shared a picture of his daughter — Olympia.
He wrote that he met Serena Williams four years yesterday in Rome, and now, the three of them will go on adventures together and is celebrating all the women in the world.
A BOND OF A LIFETIME
Before Mother's Day, Kotb was celebrating something even more special. The 54-year-old called in on "Today" on Friday to share some news on her daughters. The "Fourth Hour" host told her fellow hosts that her 2-year-old embraced the role of a big sister quickly. She said it fills her with joy that they will always have each other to count on as they journey through life.
Hoda has a friend like that — Kathie Lee Gifford and the two have been together through thick and thin. Gifford, a former "Today" host, visited her friend and baby Hope recently, and she cuddled with the little girl.
Kotb shared a picture of the visit last Wednesday, and it was apparent she was glad to have her friend around, and despite the distance, their bond is still active.
