Building up to it

The edited video shows numerous snippets from various episodes of "Today with Hoda & Jenna." It begins with the two women counting down from five.

In another shot, the women appear backstage and playfully interact with viewers. "Guys, come with us! We're gonna let you in on a little secret," they say.

In turns, the women announce that from February 6, fans will get to enjoy as well as participate in a live audience show that airs on Thursdays and Fridays each week.

"We've been in your house, and now it's time for you to come to our house," they reveal as they stand in front of the empty chairs that fans will soon fill.

Bush Hager and Kotb's baby

According to Variety, the show will be filmed in Studio 6A. Bush Hager, 38, has been on the show just over a year, having replaced longtime host Kathie Lee Gifford.

Last year, both she and Kotb ended up taking maternity leave after welcoming new babies to their families. Bush Hager described their latest show as another addition.

After the pre-recorded announcement clip, the blonde beauty said she was so excited she could cry. She added: " 'Cause we're having a baby, y'all! This type of baby, not a person, but a show."

Kotb speaks on engagement

Kotb agreed with her, describing the new move as "big." The 55-year-old is continuing her run after adopting her second daughter last year and getting engaged to longtime boyfriend, Joel Schiffman.

It came as a great shock to colleagues when she announced the news back in November. A few weeks later, Kotb spoke about her unexpected engagement.

At the time, she said that while "everything may look out of order, and it kind of feels it a little bit, but it is all right on time." We wonder what might be next for Kotb and Bush Hanger.

Fans of the two can catch upcoming episodes of "Today with Hoda & Jenna" on NBC every day at 10 am. The the new show is expected to take up the same time slot.
