  • Hoda Kotb & Daughter

Hoda Kotb is now the proud parent of two.

On Tuesday's Today show the co-host, 54, called in to the show to share that she adopted a second daughter.

Of course, her colleagues on air were beyond moved by the news and inquired how Kotb's older daughter, Haley Joy Kotb, reacted to getting a sibling.

"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".

Kotb said: "She was literally marching around saying, 'I'm a big sister!' " - so much so that "she did try to crawl into [Hope's] bassinet".

"Man, I'm so happy she's here". Shout out your congrats to Kotb and her growing family in the comments section (below)!

Kotb was beaming in a photo, embracing her new baby along with her 2-year-old daughter Haley Joy bearing a big smile. She says Haley wanted to feed Hope raspberries for breakfast. "In that moment I was like, 'Oh my god, my heart just grew!'" "It's incredible. I can't believe it's happening!"

She's already bonding with her baby sister.

Shortly after the adoption of Kotb's first daughter, Haley, she opened up about her hard journey to motherhood.

Hoda went on to explain how she and her longtime boyfriend Joel Schiffman found it in their hearts to raise another child. The news anchor had all but given up on having a child.

"Finally I said to myself one day, 'Why can't I?" "Joel and I were standing there when they hand you the baby", she recalled.

Kotb finally brought her newborn daughter home in February 2017.
