Hoda Kotb says she has filled out paperwork to adopt a third child

Hoda Kotb and fiancé Joel Schiffman could be adding another member to their family.

Speaking recently to “Entertainment Tonight,” the “Today” show co-anchor — who shares daughters Haley Joy, 3, and Hope Catherine, 1, with Schiffman — said the couple has filled out the paperwork to adopt a third child.

“You know what, Joel and I have had this conversation because — you feel like you get a limited of time on earth and your heart expands, and sometimes you don’t realize your heart’s ability to expand until you’ve filled [it] and sometimes you think you’re at the top, and then you realize that there’s more room,” Kotb said.

“And we wondered, you know, would our family be better with another child? Do we have enough love, do we have enough time, you know, will we be a better family unit? And the answer to all those questions seems to be ‘yes, we would be,’” she continued.

Kotb, 56, and Schiffman, 61, adopted Haley in 2017, and Hope two years later. The couple announced their engagement in the fall of 2019.

Kotb noted that she and Schiffman are taking things a day at a time, leaving the decision “in God’s hands.”

“But you can’t control how life works,” she said. “Like, all we can do is put it into the universe and fill out papers and then wait and if it happens wow, you know, that was meant to be.”

Earlier this month, Kotb opened up about the possibility of adding to her family.

“It’s funny, I think to myself — and I’ve obviously had a conversation with Joel about it, many conversations — but I feel like, well, can we? Yes. Will our family be better with it? Yes. Do we have enough love in the house? Yes. All the answers seem to say yes,” Kotb previously said to People.
