(Newser) Today show host Hoda Kotb says she has adopted a baby girl, the AP reports. The co-anchor of the fourth hour of the NBC morning program said in an emotional phone interview on the show Tuesday that she had adopted a newborn and named her Haley Joy. The 52-year-old Kotb says the baby was born on Valentine's Day, and that she is "the love of my life." A picture of Kotb holding the baby was shown on-air. Today show anchor Matt Lauer says the girl is the "luckiest" on the planet and Kotb will be "one of the most fantastic moms" he can ever imagine. Kotb's on-air partner, Kathie Lee Gifford, told Kotb that she was "made to be a mom." (Read more Hoda Kotb stories.)
