The wine-sipping TV personality, who's been absent from the her NBC morning show post and sharing all kinds of inspirational quotes on social media over the last week, announced on Tuesday that her daughter, Haley Joy Kotb, was born on Feb. “She’s a Valentine’s baby, so she’s a little nugget,” Kotb said while calling into the show and sharing a snapshot of her little girl.
Kotb said she is "among the strongest, most optimistic people I’ve ever met, because she believes anything is possible." The "Today" family promptly shared their well wishes during the show and on social media.
