Hoda Kotb brought two special guests with her while on location in New Orleans!
During Thursday's episode of Today with Hoda & Jenna, Kotb shared that her two daughters Hope, 2, and Haley, 4, joined their mom for the trip down south and invited the girls to come on camera to say hello.
"I brought my daughters, you want to come say hi?" she asks the toddlers as someone behind the camera ushers them over to their mom.
"I got two little ones. I just want to say, these two girls are gonna fall in love with the city just as I have over the years. So thank y'all for welcoming them," Kotb says while holding one daughter in each arm.
"It really is awesome to bring your kids here. They're overwhelmed. This is such an incredible place and an incredible city," she adds. "It's really cool."
