New mom Hoda Kotb will return to Today on Monday morning following her maternity leave after adopting a baby girl.

Hoda was gone for two months, but stayed in touch with viewers giving them updates on her new bundle, Haley Joy.

“Can you believe I have a daughter?” she says in the latest video. “I didn’t know that my heart can feel like this. With all the love I’ve ever had in my life — I’ve had the love of a wonderful mom, a wonderful man, the best siblings — I never ever imagined that I could feel this kind of … it’s like a warm hand on my heart. She’s learning up against me and I’m over the moon.”

“This is a moment in my life I never thought would happen. And here it is happening to me. Wow. When I look at her, I see forever. I see past me. I see the future, which I guess I never saw. I want her to know that she is loved by me, by family, and by everyone who's held her. I don't think she's going to know what to do with all the love.”

The 52-year-old will talk more about becoming a parent during a special segment when she returns.
