Hoda Kotb shows off her funny doormat that references Blake Shelton
Today host Hoda Kotb has made it no secret that she’s a big fan of country singer Blake Shelton. On Tuesday, she shared how far her love for him goes.
Posting a picture on Instagram, the star revealed a doormat that referenced the singer. The post had the musician’s fans going crazy as they admired the creativity behind it.
The doormat that Hoda Kotb bought hilariously reads, ‘If you're a babysitter, bottle of wine, or Blake Shelton we're home!’ A fan on Twitter wrote, ‘I [heart with stars emoji] your door mat, where can I get the same one!!! Please!’

During the live broadcast, the host couldn't keep her cool about hanging out with Shelton in Nashville. She gushed to the audience in disbelief that she was sitting with the musician.
Shelton reciprocated the love by announcing that he was sitting with Kotb at his bar the Ole Red. He shared that he couldn’t believe that it was happening and that it felt like an out of body experience.
The star revealed to his co-host that he had been thinking about that moment forever. He then professed his love for her while she beamed shyly at him.
Oh my gosh, that is so you! 😂 I don’t need a babysitter anymore, but I’ll take the other two! Have a great Boozeday Tuesday!— TracyFromJax ✌🏼☀️🐚 🌴 🦀 🐆 😼 (@tracyfromjax) July 10, 2018
Ahhhhhahaha!!! Musta been custom made...for you! How fun!— Jay Mackey (@thejaymackey) July 10, 2018
Kotb responded by joking that, “Today is my favorite day ever.” Last year, the host expressed her love for Shelton over social media when she posted a photo of herself holding a cut-out of him in NYC.
She joked at the time that she was nonchalantly crossing the street with the singer. Despite their mutual flirtation and admiration, Kotb is happily dating Joel Schiffman and the two adopted a baby daughter named Haley.
On the other hand, Shelton has been dating Gwen Stefani since 2015. The source for the creative doormat has been named as Josie B., an online decor shop that offers personalized hand-painted welcome mats.
Store owner and creator Lauren Burcombe took credit for putting together the genius combination. Anyone can have their own made for just $48 and it takes up to four weeks to make.
