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.

Today!

“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.

Kat Von D’s Baby Bump, Zara Tindall Reveals she Had a Second Miscarriage, and Cardi B Buys a New “Lambo”

With another week in the history books, it’s time to catch up on some of the celebrity baby news that might have snuck past you this week.  We’ll start off the roundup with Zara Tindall’s bombshell revelation:

Tindall Suffered a Second Miscarriage

Zara Tindall discussed the tragic story of how she suffered a second miscarriage just prior to the birth of her second child, Lena.  This particular miscarriage happened in 2017 during the early part of her pregnancy, but Tindall never discussed it with the public.  Tindall had already suffered her first miscarriage in 2016 

Tindall explained her decision to keep the miscarriage under wraps to The Sunday Times, “You need to go through a period where you don’t talk about it because it’s too raw”.

Zara Tindall,37, is granddaughter to Queen Elizabeth and is married to ex-rugby player, Mike Tindall.  The two welcomed their first daughter, Mia, in 2014.

Kat Von D was spotted wearing an all-black ensemble in the sweltering heat of LA.

It’s hot on the Left Coast.  Oppressively hot, some would say.  That didn’t stop expectant mama, Kat Von D, for taking off on an afternoon stroll with a friend. Keeping true to her goth roots, the former LA Ink star braved the heat in an all-black outfit accessorized with a low slung cross. Check out Von D’s growing baby bump below.

Von D is married to musician Rafael Reyes, aka Leafer Sayer, and the couple announced in May that they are expecting a boy.

Ali Fedotowsky Reveals If She Will Have More Children

Ali Fedotowsky of The Bachelorette is now speaking out and sharing her plans for future children. Ali has two so far with her husband Kevin Manno. Us Weekly got all of the details and it doesn’t seem like Ali has any doubts about her decision either. They caught up with her at Hallmark Channel’s TCA Summer party in Beverly Hills on Thursday, July 26, which was one of the few times Ali got out of the house without kids. 

Ali just had her second child with her husband Kevin Manno and she is happy with the size of her family now. Kevin and Ali don’t want any more kids at all saying there was “no chance in hell.” Obviously, she didn’t hold back and is pretty set on her choice. She explained her thoughts about having more kids. 

“No chance. We’re talking about vasectomies. Like, we are done. I’ve done enough, OK? I’ve had children, I’ve been through pregnancy, labor. He can do something this time. Yeah, no. We’re having those conversations. We don’t want more than two. The thing is, a vasectomy is reversible … but, like, we’re like certain we don’t want one, even though I say, never say never.”

Ali and Kevin have two children and they got one boy and one girl. This seems like it is perfect for them. Ali found love on The Bachelorette with Roberto Martinez, but things didn’t work out. She met Kevin through a mutual friend. They got married and have a son Riley plus their daughter Molly who is two-years-old. The fans would have loved to see Ali as The Bachelorette a second time, but she didn’t need reality TV to find her match. It did help launch her career, though.

Fedotowsky is admitting that having two children is a lot harder than one. She now understands when a mom says they don’t even have time to take a shower. Ali admits to handing off the baby the second Kevin walks in the door so that she can get a shower herself. When she just had one baby, it was a lot easier to get things done.

Are you surprised to hear that Ali Fedotowsky doesn’t have plans to have any more children? Let us know in the comments below and don’t miss watching The Bachelorette with Becca Kufrin on Monday nights on ABC. After that, it will be time for a new season of Bachelor in Paradise.

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!
