Hoda Kotb is proof that one can find love and marriage later in life. The show host is set to marry her longtime boyfriend after he proposed a year ago, and she recently shared some wedding details.

In 2019, Joel Schiffman, 62, asked Hoda Kotb, 56, to marry him while on a tropical vacation. The longtime couple's plan was to get married in November 2020, but they had to postpone.

The duo decided to hold off their wedding indefinitely because of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease. Their wedding was set to be a destination one, but their plans have since changed.

A month before the date, Kotb spoke to “People” magazine to reveal that Maria Shriver called her to know what was happening. The actress confessed that she still had the date marked on her calendar.

The “Today” show host was surprised as she’d thought she had told Shriver that it was definitely off. During a recent discussion with Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, Kotb dished about her own wedding.

She confessed that she still didn't know when her postponed wedding would take place. The television show host noted how she hoped to have the wedding on a special day somewhere close to their home.

Even though she didn’t have an exact date, she hoped it would be sometime in the summer of 2021. The star revealed that it would probably be somewhere at a beach in or around New York.

Showing how conscious she was of the pandemic, she explained that they wouldn’t be traveling anywhere. She shared that her wedding might be more intimate than she had expected.

Kotb and Schiffman already have two adopted children that they’re raising together.

While speaking to her co-host Jenna Bush Hager on Wednesday, the fourth-hour co-host revealed the music selection she wanted for the day. Kotb shared that she loved “Someone Like You” by Van Morrison.

She had the song in mind for her first dance as Schiffman’s wife. The co-host confessed that she thought the song made a great wedding track and gushed over it, stating:

"That is such a beautiful, beautiful song.”

Kotb and Schiffman already have two adopted children that they’re raising together. While in self-quarantine, the couple has had the opportunity of spending more quality time with their daughters.

The television show host adopted Haley Joy, now-3, before she and her fiancé welcomed Hope Catherine, now-1. The two little girls are probably going to be part of the wedding party.
