On Thursday, Today anchor and breast cancer survivor Hoda Kotb shared a very sweet Halloween pic of her daughter Haley Joy, 8 months, on Instagram and Twitter. The costume? A pumpkin, of course. The photo was captioned, “I couldn’t wait!”
We understand. What’s the point of having cute kids if you can’t put them in pumpkin suits once in awhile? Hopefully, Haley Joy likes dressing up, because we have a feeling this is just the beginning of her Halloween costume collection.
Kotb announced in February that she adopted Haley Joy — born on Valentine’s Day. Kotb lives with her boyfriend, Joel Schiffman.
Kotb has been loving motherhood. “It’s one of those things where you think you’ve done it all, you think you’ve felt it all. But I just didn’t know that this kind of love existed,” she told People in March about her new daughter. Since Haley Joy arrived, Kotb has been delightedly sharing pics of her little girl online, like this sweet mommy-and-me snap from Oct. 10:
“There’s a line of demarcation: before Haley and after Haley,” Kotb told People in the same interview. “Every day after Haley is better than every single day before.” Yep. We can definitely relate.
