Hoda was with Joel for eight years before they parted ways, but they both continue to co-parent their children, Hayley and Hope.

She has thanked him for helping her make the decision to adopt her daughters. 

She told Good Housekeeping magazine: “I don’t think I would have adopted if it hadn’t been for Joel. Having a stable relationship in that moment was really important.

“Once that fell into place, it didn’t seem as scary to me. I ask read about Sandra Bullock and the children she adopted. I’d always felt a weird connection to her, though I only knew her from the show.

“But she was my age, and I just thought, ‘Wow, she’s really cool.’ I called her, and we talked.
“She said adopting was the most important thing she’d ever done. When I had made the decision to adopt and was on the plane to pick up my [first] daughter, I called her again. She said, ‘It’s about to begin!’ Sometimes all you need is a model before [you realize] I can handle it.”
