It is always beautiful for people to appreciate the special person who has made a significant impact on their lives. Hoda Kotb toed that path when she served up a very romantic post in tribute to her boyfriend on their 6th anniversary. 


Hoda Kotb took to Instagram to pay tribute to the love of her life, Joel Schiffman on the 6th anniversary of their relationship. The post on her page showed just how much she adores Joel and feels about him.


The post had an image of the lovers cuddled up together in a romantic pose  — it seemed to have been taken during their time out on a date. She captioned the post with words that explained how far they have gone in their relationship, making mention of their achievements together.

Such achievements include their two children, and two new jobs, as well as their oneness of heart. She also took time to thank Tyler and Joanne Mathisen, who played a role in her meeting up with Joel for their very first date. Commenters on the post were very much pleased for Hoda and Joel and wished them well for the future. 

Hoda and Joel have been in a celebratory mood in recent times, spending time with one another and with their two daughters — Haley Joy, aged two and their adopted baby, Hope Catherine.


Memorial Day seemed like an excellent opportunity for them to also have fun with the girls, and they had a swell time together. Hoda also shared some cute photographs of her and her family while she was on maternity leave.


The Today Show also took time to wish Hoda and Joel a happy anniversary, and the show’s co-host revealed that executive producer Joanne arranged the pair's first date.

However, Joanna explained that she didn’t set the two up, but that they only met at an event which her husband made Hoda attend. After meeting each other, the pair felt great about each other and made their first date happen by themselves.


Well, it has been six years, and the pair sure compliment one another perfectly. Their first meeting was at a book signing event in 2013, where Hoda was a speaker at an event for held for Wall Street Professionals.

While signing books after the event, Joel walked up to her and asked her to sign a book to him. They would later send emails to each other and go on a first date that has led to a beautiful relationship. Congrats to Hoda and Joel.
