Birthday celebrations are in order for Hoda Kotb’s adorable daughter, Haley Joy, who turns 1 year old on Valentine’s Day! Hoda is in Pyeongchang, South Korea, covering the Winter Olympics, but she made sure to celebrate her daughter’s birthday before her trip. The Today coanchor shared the sweet photos on Instagram and Twitter, writing, “It’s already Valentine’s Day in South Korea and I am missing my Valentine’s baby! We celebrated little Haley’s bday before I left.”

Haley Joy had a special cake that said “Yay Haley!” with a classic “one” candle, and her mom sang “Happy Birthday” to her as she gazed at the dessert in her high chair – she really couldn’t be any cuter. After adopting Haley Joy in February 2017, Hoda has shared countless adorable moments with her baby girl and has made it clear she loves being a mom. In a heartwarming essay about motherhood written for Today, Hoda said, “To everything that ails me, she’s the cure. It doesn’t even matter what the problem is. I’ve never looked at someone and felt all my problems melt away.” Happy birthday, Haley Joy!
