Aw! Hoda Kotb’s Fiancé Appeared on ‘Today’ For The First Time
How sweet is this?!
Today cohost Hoda Kotb celebrated her latest venture on the show, debuting the new fourth hour: Hoda & Jenna & Friends. And to celebrate, her fiancé Joel Schiffman sat in the audience to show support.
When Hoda spotted Joel sitting in the front row, she became emotional.
“You know when there are big moments in your life? It’s your wedding, it’s your first job, it’s the kids are running around. Sometimes you need to take one second and just literally sit in the moment,” she said when she took her seat on stage. “You guys, thank you for coming, for traveling from all around.”
She then explained why having him at her first taping meant so much to her.
“When everybody is busy in life, they’re busy. Joel had a really, really, really super busy day at work and I didn’t even ask him to come. I didn’t bring it up, and I didn’t want him to feel bad and say he can’t come so I didn’t bring it up,” she shared. “And then, I sent him a text and said, ‘If you want to come any Thursday.’ And he said, ‘How about this Thursday? I’m so glad you asked.’”
We love this! Such a great couple.
