Today’s Hoda Kotb admits ‘anything’s possible’ as daughter Hope recovers from scary hospital stay

HODA Kotb has shared an emotional post about hope as her daughter recovers from a terrifying hospital stay.

The Today Show star returned to the morning show on Monday after her mysterious hiatus from the broadcast.

Now Hoda, 58, has shared a cryptic post on her social media.

The TV personality took to her Instagram profile on Monday to share a quote from Christopher Reeve.

The background showed a cloudy sky over a line of trees, but a rainbow poked out and crossed from the sky to the grass.

The message read: “Once you choose hope, anything is possible.”

Hoda captioned the post: ” Happy monday xo,” and fans filled the comments with their support.


The journalist explained the reason for her recent absence while choking back tears Monday morning.

She told viewers: “My youngest daughter Hope was in the ICU for a few days and in the hospital for a little more than a week and I’m so grateful she’s home.”

“She is back home and I’ve been waiting for that day to come and we are watching her closely.”

“I realize when your child is ill, the amount of gratitude you can have for people for who helped you out…” Hoda continued.

“I’m grateful for the doctors at Weill Cornell who are amazing and the nurses and I’m grateful to my family and friends like you who were there every single day.”


Monday was also Savannah Guthrie’s first day back at the anchor seat since leaving early last week after testing positive for COVID.

On Friday, Hoda’s NBC colleague Al Roker, 68, told Page Six that the fan-favorite TV star was “doing fine.”

The meteorologist continued: “She’s going to be just fine. She’s dealing with what she’s gotta deal with 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 had 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 okay. She has a family health matter she’s been dealing with.”

At the time 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 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 weeks. Sure hope, it’s something good,” wrote one fan on Instagram.

A lot of people replied 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.”

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

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

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