Congratulations to Hoda Kotb who has adopted her second child.

Hoda Kotb announced some very special news on Tuesday's "Today" show. "I'm feeding her and I can't believe it. Like, I'm sitting here and, you know, you think that maybe you have gotten what you deserve, but man, I'm so happy she is here". The TODAY show anchor, 54, revealed to her co-hosts on the April 16 episode of the morning show that she adopted a baby again, another little girl named Hope Catherine Kotb. The baby's name is Hope Catherine Kotb and she joins big sister Haley Joy, 2. She says Haley wanted to feed Hope raspberries for breakfast.

At the time, fans and followers just assumed it was another Monday pick-me-up, but now, commenters have been going back and realizing Kotb was actually sending her own little coded message in a way! Joel and I were standing there when they hand you the baby, and it's the closest thing to a live birth you'll ever see. "It's incredible. I can't believe it's happening".

When Haley first met her sister, Kotb explained: "We'd been telling her, 'Baby Hope's coming, ' and she literally walked up to her and looked at her and she goes, 'Hope!'"

New Zealand's McKenzie to miss World Cup
The Rugby World Cup door may still be ajar for Ma'a Nonu despite being excluded from the All Blacks' "foundation squad". Mckenzie has been diagnosed with a tear of the ACL - a key ligament in the knee.

Shortly after the adoption of Kotb's first daughter, Haley, she opened up about her hard journey to motherhood. You think that you're full. The news anchor had all but given up on having a child.

In March, Hoda couldn't help but gush over her boyfriend of six years.

Kotb finally brought her newborn daughter home in February 2017. "But it feels totally real".

"You hope, you pray, you dream about things, and we thought about Hope", Kotb said.
