“We make sure that the kids get plenty of him and plenty of me,” the journalist explained, adding that she and the Colorado native are doing their “best” while raising daughters Haley, 5, and Hope, 3.
“Yeah, we are,” the author of You Are My Happy said when asked if they’re “close pals.”
Angelina Jolie, Thomas Rhett, and Other Celebrities Who Have Adopted Children. Haley was adopted by the ex-couple in February 2017, and Hope was adopted two years later. “Never say never,” says Kotb when it comes to adopting baby No. 3.
“I think love is a funny thing,” the Oklahoma native, who is “not actually dating” right now, told Us. Your heart, for example, has a vast capacity, and no one understands what fills it. But, whatever it is, I believe you must be open and ready.”
For the time being, the author of Where They Belong is concentrating on her daughters’ achievements. On Thursday, Kotb said, “Haley calls me ‘poopie mom,’ so that’s a big [one].” “That’s what’s going on right now, and I’m not sure how to stop it!” Hope is three years old and has a lot to say.”

“My mother was a working mother, and she never said, ‘Mommy wishes she could be at home,'” the Virginia Tech alumna remarked at the time. “I want Haley to know that you can be both a loving mother and a varied individual.” Is it possible for me to spend every waking moment with her? Yes. But I also understand that in order to be content, you must have other interests. I want her to understand that working is a good thing if she wants to do it.”
