“She’s a Valentine’s baby. She is the love of my life,” Kotb, 52, said of her daughter, Haley Joy who she adopted. “I didn’t know my heart could feel like this. This is a moment in my life that I never thought would happen, and here it is, happening to me.”

This is the first child for Kotb, who was previously married to Burzis Kanga from 2005 to 2007. In October, the TV personality announced that she was moving in with her boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, after three years of dating. (Kotb did not reveal if Schiffman was involved with the adoption.)

congrats!!
