She had previously announced that she was unsure whether they would be able to keep their original wedding date.

The talk show host had suggested that they would have to push back the wedding with the couple realizing they did not have to have a destination wedding.

“As long as you can spend time with your family and friends, it doesn’t matter where you do something like that or even when.

The pair went public in 2015 after photos of the daytime star and “finance guy” were published by the Daily Mail.

Joel reportedly proposed with a beautiful diamond and saphire engagement ring created by a friend Jennifer Miller. She said,

“What touched me about the ring is what he thought about it. And he thought about what I might like. He went to (Miller) and they were sharing things back and forth unbeknownst to me.”

Hoda's ring, which is reportedly a five-carat Asscher cut diamond set in a blue sapphire halo, is thought to retail for over $250,000.

They had planned to have the wedding, “sooner rather than later” and had originally wanted to tie the knot before the end of the year.

However, while they may be unsure of when the actual ceremony will take place, Hoda has said that she already feels married to Joel, who she shares two children with.

For now, their plans have been put on hold until restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have been lifted.
