Famous American broadcast journalist, Hoda Kotb is a proud mom as she took to social media to share pictures of her daughter, Hope Catherine, on her birthday.

Kotb formerly served as a correspondent for the television news magazine program Dateline NBC. The 55-year-old author recently took to her Instagram page to share a series of photos in celebration of her second adopted daughter's birthday.

Two of the pictures feature Hope dressed in an Elmo polka dot dress. Her sister, Haley, could be seen with her in both photographs. Kotb captioned the post,

"As my best friend @karenswensen said.. Hope blooms this Easter! Happy bday Hope! #1."


Another picture featured Kotb in a Zoom video call with other members of her family, including her mother, Sameha Kotb, her brother, Adel, and her sister, Hala, who all wished to celebrate with Hope from a safe distance.

Fans of the talented journalist echoed her sentiments as they took to the comments section to wish Hope a happy birthday. A fan wrote, "Happy Birthday Hope, you are so precious and loved by your family."

Hoda Kotb and Joel Schiffman have been in a relationship since 2013.


Hope was adopted by Hoda Kotb and her fiance, Joel Schiffman, last year in April. To celebrate her one-year milestone, a sesame street themed party was thrown — complete with a yellow frosted birthday cake that had a candle on top.

Earlier in the day, Kotb posted a cute photo of her adopted daughters, Haley and Hope, wearing matching outfits and donning bunny ears. The proud mom captioned the heartwarming moment,

"Happy easter xoxo."


Since she announced the adoption of little Hope, Kotb has shared a lot of great moments with her, including her crawling for the very first time, standing up with just a bit of help, and having sister-sister bonding time with her bigger sis, Haley.

Hoda Kotb and Joel Schiffman have been in a relationship since 2013. They got engaged on November 25, 2019, and the announcement was made live on "Today."

Prior to the beginning of her relationship with Schiffman, Kotb was married to the former University of New Orleans tennis coach, Burzis Kanga. The marriage ended in divorce, in 2008.
