"If you haven't heard the news, Hoda's got a new baby girl at home, little Hope!" Savannah gushed, and then revealed she and Jenna Bush Hager paid Hoda and Hope a visit yesterday.
"Jenna and I went right over right after the show. I don't even know if we were invited, but we went in and we saw the baby," she said. "She's adorable. Hoda is doing great and is just so happy and pleased. It's really wonderful."
Hoda broke the news that she had adopted Hope in a phone call to the show on Tuesday morning.

Try to always use reason not rage. Avoid fighting fire with fire. Be in control of your feelings and your actions so that your children can learn to be in control of theirs.
"I'm feeding her, and I can't believe it,'' a tearful Hoda said. "I'm so happy she's here!"
During Tuesday's fourth hour, Hoda also revealed why she and Joel chose the name Hope .
"The name came because there are a lot of women out there who are hoping that their day is coming too, and I know the feeling of it not happening for a long time," she said.
