‘Today’ show hints Hoda Kotb will return soon from maternity leave
Hoda Kotb appears to be getting close to her “Today” show return.
The NBC broadcaster has been on maternity leave since April after she and longtime boyfriend Joel Schiffman adopted their second child, daughter Hope Catherine, but fellow “Today” host Dylan Dreyer teased during Monday’s show that Kotb will have something to share Tuesday.
“Make sure you tune in tomorrow because we have a very special message from Hoda and here’s just a hint: we’re looking forward to seeing her around studio 1A very soon,” Dreyer said.
Kotb, 55, and Schiffman, 61, are also parents to 2-year-old daughter Haley Joy.

Monday’s tease comes after Kotb brought Hope to the beach with Dreyer, who brought her 2-year-old son, Calvin.
Dreyer, 38, announced last month that and she and husband Brian Fichera are expecting her second child, three months after she opened up on the “Today” show about suffering a miscarriage and experiencing trouble conceiving.
