"It's a girl", Hoda exclaimed during an on-air telephone conversation that TODAY viewers could hear.

Jenna interrupted the discussion during TODAY's 8:00am hour to tell everyone that she had a major exclusive about someone famous, and that she had them on the phone. "Congratulations are in order for @hodakotb, who adopted a second little girl, Hope Catherine, this week", the caption read. "This morning at breakfast [Haley] was trying to feed her raspberries and I was like, 'Not yet, babe, "' Hoda joked. "I mean look, in your life, you think maybe you've gotten what you deserve. But man, I'm so happy she's here".

Hope Catherine joins big sister Haley Joy, now 2 years old, whom Kotb adopted after a battle with breast cancer left her unable to conceive. "How's she doing? Is she helping?" asked Savannah Guthrie. "It felt nearly selfish", Kotb explained. "But I want to talk to you about this.' And he said, 'OK, what is it?' And I said, 'I would like to explore adoption with you'". "He's just everything." In a separate interview with Andy Cohen, she added, "I'm going to be with Joel until my last breath - I know that".

"They said to me at the adoption agency, 'Don't worry, your child is out there waiting for you.' And I remember I would scribble in my journal, 'I know you're there.' I could feel her". "The book is really just about saying thank you for the little, tiny things".

"Happy Monday xx", she wrote. We will have to stay tuned for more Hoda Kotb celebrity mom news to find out!
