Take a look at how the TODAY Show host sent her well-wishes this holiday season.
'Tis the season for sending those near and dear to our hearts an annual dose of Christmas cheer in the form of a personalized Christmas card. Joining the slew of celebrities showing off their adorable loved ones on holiday cards is Hoda Kotb. The TODAY Show host wished us all a season’s greetings with her ridiculously cute 9-month-old daughter in tow. And much like her name, Haley Joy brought some much-needed "joy" into the world and into Kotb and her boyfriend Joel Schiffman’s heart for their first official family Christmas card.
Shared by Kotb on December 5, the front of the card features a very jolly Kotb wearing a Santa’s hat while carrying Haley Joy. The front bears a short greeting taken from the popular Christmas carol, "Joy to the World." Kotb continued the Yuletide spirit on the back of the card, where Haley Joy was photographed in front of a decorated Christmas tree wearing a festive plaid dress to match Kotb’s red sweater.
"On the back I put her in a Christmas dress my mom got her!" Hoda said.
While describing the joyful family portrait, Kotb mentioned how much attention she now pays to style, when it comes to dressing her adopted daughter.
"I can't believe how much fun it is," Hoda explained. "You know how I don’t care about clothes at all? Like, I couldn't care less about what I wear? It’s funny because I’m like, ‘Oh my God, she looks so cute in the dress—where’s the bow?'"
Though we’re sad we won’t be receiving the Oklahoma native’s card in the mail, we’re glad she shared the sweet family snap of Haley Joy’s first Christmas.
