There isn't a celebrity wedding we're more looking forward to than that of Hoda Kotb and Joel Schiffman. Now, the TODAY show co-host has revealed that the couple's two young daughters—Haley Joy, almost three-years-old, and Hope Catherine, almost one-year-old—will play a starring show in their nuptials.

In an interview with E! News, Kotb expressed her desire for her kids to be a part of their big day. "I can't even believe I'm saying that sentence: Our kids being part of our wedding, Haley's been asking me, 'What is it? What's going on?' She's like, 'Am I coming to the party?' And I say, 'Yes, you're coming.' They're going to walk. Joel and I will be there and the rest of it is just icing," she told the outlet.

Last week on The Ellen Show, Kotb also revealed some more big news: The couple is talking about possibly expanding their family by adopting a third baby. She reiterated the chance of that happening in the latest interview with E! News, saying, "Joel and I have talked about expanding just because we feel like we feel like we have room and we have love and we have everything."

In the same Ellen Show segment referenced above, Kotb also revealed that her wedding will likely be a laid-back affair, taking place next autumn. "I think we're gonna do it in the fall," Kotb told the show's host Ellen DeGeneres. "Super simple, like no big deal, we'll bring some friends, we'll probably be on a beach somewhere."

Regardless of what idyllic setting the ceremony takes place, we're hoping some beautiful flower girl dresses are in Haley Joy and Hope Catherine's future. This is certainly one wedding we wish we could be a fly on the wall for—or as the case would have it, a seagull on the beach.
