3: Hoda Kotb Would Make A Great Best Friend
Play • 11 min

About three years ago, Jill Devine started paying a little more attention to Hoda Kotb.  Hoda is a co-anchor on NBC’s TODAY show.

When Jill’s oldest daughter was six months month old, Hoda announced she adopted a baby girl, Haley Joy. Jill instantly related to the love Hoda had for her first-born and immediately felt a connection with Hoda.  Jill felt like she was experiencing all the same “firsts” along side Hoda. 

Fast forward to Jill having her second daughter and Hoda adopting her second daughter, Hope Catherine, around the same time!  Hoda said she wanted Haley to have a sibling to do life with and Jill felt the same way about her oldest daughter, Lu.  Hoda also explained how she and Joel were considered “older parents” and Jill and her husband, Brian, are also considered older parents. 

The connections continue for Jill with Hoda, even though Hoda has no idea who Jill is!!
