On the Today Show, Hoda Kotb called in to reveal some big news — she just adopted a second baby girl! The co-anchor and her partner Joel Schiffman adopted a baby girl — Haley Joy — just two years ago and wanted to give her a sibling.

Revealing that they have named their daughter Hope Catherine, she was born last weekend and Hoda was right there in the hospital to greet her.

Hoda, who was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 42 years old, came out of treatment unable to conceive but has always wanted to be a mother. Congrats!
