Today’s Al Roker gives update on Hoda Kotb’s status after she worries fans with two-week absence from the show

On Friday, 68-year-old Al told Page Six that Hoda was “doing fine.”

The meteorologist continued: “She’s going to be just fine. She’s dealing with what she’s gotta deal will and all will be good.”

This isn’t the first time an anchor has referenced Hoda’s swift and unexplained disappearance from the show.

The star has been absent from the line-up for about two weeks, with many fans wondering why, and when she planned to return.

On Wednesday’s show, Craig Melvin, 43, briefly explained Hoda’s absence: “Many of you have been asking about Hoda. Hoda is OK. She has a family health matter she’s been dealing with.”

He did not offer additional details regarding his co-host’s whereabouts or future plans.

Hours later, photos captured Hoda looking solemn while picking up her six-year-old daughter, Haley Joy, from school.

In the absence of an explanation, fans have created theories of their own.

After spotting clues on social media, some believe she adopted another child.

“Did you get another baby, Hoda? This is usually what happens when you go missing for 2 wks. Sure hope, it’s something good,” wrote one fan on Instagram.

A lot of people replied to them and said they were “thinking the same thing.”

Another follower asked: “Ok. Seriously…what is going on with you? I know you have a right to privacy, but your truest fans have noticed your absence and these posts…worried about you.”

To that, someone replied: “having another baby.”

“Maybe she’s adding to her family? She has mentioned it before,” said one follower.

Hoda is the mother to two daughters – Haley Joy and Hope Catherine – with her ex-fiancé, Joel Schiffman.

She and Joel have remained friendly and co-parent their children, whom they adopted.


Hoda’s recent social media activity has sparked concern among her fanbase.

Amid a slew of cryptic posts, the anchor shared a photo with the words “Choose hope.”

Fans were quick to send their love to Hoda and remind her that she was missed.

One wrote: “Find it difficult to watch with you not being there,” added a second viewer.

“Your bright smile is missed. Keeping a good thought for you,” added another.

A third shared: “Miss you and sending prayers for whatever is going on with you.”
