Hoda Kotb Reveals ‘I Understand Why I’m On Earth’

Hoda Kotb Reveals ‘I Understand Why I’m On Earth’ Since Becoming a Mother

Hoda Kotb, 54, had it all, a rising career on the Today show, her loving longtime partner Joel Schiffman, and a network of loving and supportive friends. But something was still missing for the co-anchor and it kept gnawing at Kotb, she wanted so dearly to be a mother.

Already into her 50’s, she felt that window of opportunity had closed for her. Thanks to actress Sandra Bullock for inspiration, Hoda dove into the adoption process and in doing so she welcomed her daughter Hailey in 2017 who is now 17-months old.

“I was at a point where things were not in my favor,” she recalls. “Every time I had a pang like, ‘I wish I could,’ I pushed it away. I felt if she could do it, it could be done, she says of Bullock.All of a sudden, I thought, ‘Why not me?’” confesses the host of NBC’s Today. “I wanted it to go from a dream, a wish, a prayer to a reality.

Hoda now has inspired people from all over who thought their hopes of having a family was no longer an option. She admits she is moved to tears when others like her approach her on the street and thank her for being a vision for a dream they had given up on. One of the best things is when people come up and say, “I’m adopting. I thought it was too late for me, too.” I’m moved to tears. I’ve made so many choices but none was more important or monumental. It’s the best one and I just saved it for later in my life.

It wasn’t until Hoda Kotb became a mother that she realized her true calling in life. Always work driven, she found her purpose in life through her work but that all has changed for the mother since adopting Hailey. “My whole life, my career has been riding shotgun with me. But now, with Haley, it feels like, for the first time, I can see clearly. I understand my purpose. I understand why I’m on this earth. All of a sudden, the most exciting part of the day is after work when I’m holding her. Not when I’m interviewing someone, even if it’s Beyoncé!

Hoda admits being an older parent comes with different concerns than a younger parent may have and one of them is her concern that Hailey won’t be alone when she gets older.

She goes on to reveal that adopting a second time around isn’t off the table. “Never say never. I don’t want Haley to ever be by herself. When you’re an older parent, you think about those things more than you would if you were in your 20s. I always say, if it’s meant to be, it’ll just happen. I’ll just put it out in the universe and see what happens.

Michael Buble and Wife Luisana Lopilato Welcome Baby No. 3

She’s here! Michael Buble’s new gal pal has arrived. The singer’s wife, Luisana Lopilato, announced via Instagram on Thursday, July 26, that she gave birth to the couple’s third child, a baby girl.

Lopilato shared a black and white photo of her daughter’s hand that still has her hospital bracelet on.

Writing alongside the post, the new mother gushed, How to explain that our heart explodes with love? That there’s not enough hours in a day to think about it. I thank God for making us this gift of life and happiness! Because looking in her eyes is looking at heaven itself!” she wrote in her native Spanish alongside a black-and-white photo of the baby girl’s hand. “We love you to infinity and beyond. We waited for you not only to grow as a family … you gave us light, hope, you are and will be our souls’ life.”

Buble, 42, and Lopilato, 31, announced back in February that they were expecting for the third time. The couple is also parents to sons Noah, 4, and Elias, 2. Buble confirmed in an interview for Ireland’s Today FM Radio’s The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show on July 2 that his newest addition would be a little girl.

“I got my first little girl coming in three weeks, and I’ve actually never said that before in public. I’ve got a daughter coming,” he said.

The couple’s newest member isn’t the only cause for celebration for the family. Nearly two years ago their eldest son Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer. Buble and his wife both put their careers on hold to focus on their son’s treatment. At the time, the four-time Grammy winner wrote a statement on his Facebook page asking for privacy for his family during their difficult time.

“At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends, and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”

The following February Michael broke his silence about his son’s prognosis saying Noah was “progressing well during his treatment and the doctors are very optimistic about the future.”

There is so much to celebrate for Micahel and his family. Congrats on your baby girl!

Enrique Iglesias Has Some Pool Time Fun On The 4th Of The July With One Of His Twins

Enrique Iglesias celebrated America’s birthday with one of his twins in the water! The doting father was in carefree spirits on the 4th and it looks like he knows how to bring out the giggles.

??? Happy 4th of July!

A post shared by Enrique Iglesias (@enriqueiglesias) on

Iglesias posted a video via Instagram of one of his twins hanging out in a crab float while the Spanish singer provided all the entertainment. While in the water Enrique acted like a whale, spitting out water while his 6-month-old twin couldn’t hold back the excitement giggling uncontrollably.

“Happy 4th of July! ,” the 43-year-old singer captioned the previous post.

Wednesday was a day to honor America but Enrique and his longtime girlfriend Anna Kournikova have been front and center supporting their native countries during the 2018 FIFA World Cup. And what better way to root their countries on but with their two kiddos.

Kournikova has been ‘playing Switzerland,’ and sharing pics of her twins showing support for both of their parent’s countries. On Sunday, the 37-year-old tennis star posted a shot on her Instagram holding both of her babes wearing coordinating Russia shirts, one wearing blue while another wearing white.

But not worry, Nicholas and Lucy didn’t forget about their Dad and his native country of Spain. In a second snap, the twins are pictured cuddled up to each other on a chair wearing matching Spain jerseys.

The new parents have been uber private in the past of their relationship over the years, rarely speaking publicly about each other. Fans were floored when news broke that Anna had given birth to twins in December. The couple kept the pregnancy a secret during the entire nine months until Lucy and Nicholas’ arrival.

Since welcoming their twins the two can’t help but share the joy their twins have brought them, often sharing posts of their son and daughter. It’s been a nice change for the singer and tennis player’s fans that are now able to feel more connected to the pair.

Enrique performed at a concert in March in Budapest and gave a shout out to his twins passionately telling the crowd, “I became a father 12 weeks ago and I can absolutely tell you two things: I love my babies! I love them very much.”
