Hoda Kotb is ‘profoundly touched’ by support after daughter’s hospitalization

Hoda Kotb thanked fans for their “beautiful words and prayers” following her daughter’s hospitalization last month.

“You have no idea how much it means to me and my family,” the “Today” host wrote on Instagram Tuesday alongside a graphic with the words “thank you” written three times.

“I am so profoundly touched.❤️,” Kotb, 58, added.

Kotb returned to the NBC morning show on Monday after a two-week absence, announcing that her 3-year-old daughter Hope had been in the hospital.

“My youngest [daughter], Hope, was in the ICU for a few days and in the hospital for more than a week,” she told co-host Savannah Guthrie.

“I’m so grateful she’s home,” the broadcast journalist continued. “We are watching her closely. I am just so happy.”

Although she didn’t disclose what the health scare was, she gushed that her daughter is “vibrant and brilliant.”

Viewers became concerned about Kotb during her lengthy absence in mid-Februay. “Today” host Craig Melvin initially addressed the concerns on March 1, explaining that she was out due to a “family health matter.”

Meanwhile, Al Roker told Page Six last week that their colleague would be “just fine.”

Since returning to the show, the Daytime Emmy winner — who shares Hope and 6-year-old daughter Haley with ex-fiancé Joel Schiffman — has celebrated her daughter’s recovery, thanking the nurses and doctors who “stood by [Hope] all the way.”

Kotb also shared a sweet story about her daughter on the show this week.

“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.’”
