According to Page Six, Hoda Kotb and her children were spotted hanging out together in Central Park on Thursday afternoon. A spectator who spoke with The Post said the 56-year-old Today show host was dressed in athletic clothing as she ran around with her 1-year-old and 3-year-old.
A source said it was really “cute” seeing them play together, and Hoda seemed like she was “so happy.” As fans of Today know, Joel Schiffman, her fiancé, and Kotb, got engaged in April of last year and they adopted two children.
Kotb said previously that she almost never saw the 61-year-old cry until he saw their daughter for the first time. Haley Joe was adopted in 2017. Kotb and Schiffman have been dating since 2013, and they announced their engagement last November.
Schiffman has another 25-year-old daughter whom he shares with his former wife. This wouldn’t be the first time that Hoda’s name was in the headlines over the last few months.

Earlier this year, it was reported that the legendary entertainer, Regis Philbin, had died. With the news of his death hitting the press, many of his former co-stars and entertainers paid tribute to him on social media, including Hoda Kotb.
Regis died when he was 88-years-old, just a few weeks before his 89th birthday. A representative for his family released a statement to Entertainment Tonight in which they praised his character and confirmed he had died.
People like Hoda Kotb, Kelly Ripa, and Kathie Lee Gifford all came out to express their condolences to Regis’ family. Hoda, for instance, said she was “heartbroken” to hear of his death and claimed she and the rest of the world would miss him.
Regarding her relationship with Joel Schiffman, Hoda explained how her romance with the 61-year-old man had changed her life forever. During her appearence on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Hoda said that whenever she came home and her daughter jumped into her arms, it seemed like everything in life had worked out the way it was supposed too.
