Hoda Kotb gushes over daughter Hope after hospitalization

Hoda Kotb celebrated her daughter Hope being “home and good” after the 3-year-old’s “really scary” hospitalization.

The broadcast journalist gave “Today with Hoda & Jenna” viewers an update on the little one’s health upon returning to the show Monday following a two-week absence.

“She’s vibrant and brilliant,” Kotb, 58, gushed. “I’m over the moon that she’s home.

“I can’t believe how amazing people are,” the news anchor continued, calling herself “blessed” and “really, really grateful.”

After thanking the nurses and doctors who “stood by [Hope] all the way,” Kotb shared a sweet story about her “sweet” and “cute” youngest child.

“The other day … she had in her hand two little confetti stars, and she said, ‘I got two, Mom. One for me and one for you,’” she recalled. “And I thought to myself, ‘Even when she’s not feeling good, she’s still giving everything away.’”

Amid Hope’s recovery, the “You Are My Happy” author has been rubbing a “worn-down” necklace from a close friend, which she said reminds her that “God’s got this.”

Kotb — who shares Hope and 6-year-old daughter Haley, with her ex-fiancé, Joel Schiffman — noted that although her goal is to “live in gratitude,” it has been difficult to remain “in that lane” in recent weeks.

While Kotb did not comment on Melvin’s cryptic statement last week, Al Roker told Page Six that their colleague would be “just fine.”

As for Jenna Bush Hager, the former first daughter expressed her “love” and adoration for Kotb on air, as well as her hopes to have her co-host back “very, very soon.”

As NBC anchors continued to fill in for Kotb, she posted inspirational social media uploads centering around “hope” in “dark times.”
