Hoda Kotb Tells ‘Ellen’ Whether She and Fiancé Joel Schiffman Want More Kids: ‘Maybe the Answer’s Yes’

Hoda Kotb stops by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Wednesday (January 29) and opens up about her recent engagement to her longtime boyfriend, Joel Schiffman!

The 55-year-old Today show host also talks to Ellen about her two daughters – Haley Joy, 2, and Hope Catherine – how they have brought clarity to her life, and whether she wants to have more kids.

“I don’t know. I’m not 100 [percent] sure,” Hoda says after a lengthy pause when Ellen asks her about the potential of expanding her family. “I’m a sign person — I always look for signs — and I feel like there are some signs out there that are pointing to [having more kids].”

“I was scribbling in my journal and I was asking myself that question and I wrote in there, ‘I’m wondering if we should.’ And I wrote, ‘Do we have enough love?’ And I wrote, ‘Yes,’” Hoda continues. “And I said, ‘Do we have enough time?’ And I wrote, ‘Yes.’ And I said, ‘Would our family be more enhanced?’ And I wrote, ‘Yes.’”

“So I was thinking maybe the answer’s yes,” Hoda says. “And plus, when you’re parents later in life… watching Haley and Hope together, all I really want is for them to have someone to hold their hand forever, and that’s it. That’s all I want. I was scared, because we’re older, like maybe [it’s too late]. But then I realized they’ll have each other.”
