Hoda Kotb is looking towards the future with optimism when it comes to her daughter, Hope.
Over two months after the Today anchor shared that her 3-year-old had been in the hospital, the journalist gave an update on Hope’s health.
“Hope’s doing much, much better,” Hoda told People May 15 at the Webby Awards in New York. “I think it’s going to be a longer road, but she is doing great.”
And the toddler has her whole family, including mom and big sister Haley, 6, rallying around her.
“[Hope] is a happy child which is the most important thing to me,” the 58-year-old continued. “She has a really supportive big sister.”
When it comes to navigating that longer road, Hoda and her family are ready to take it head on.
“We have figured out kind of a rhythm and life throws all kinds of curve balls at you,” she explained, “And it’s sort of like what do you do with it, and it’s funny because no matter what you go through if you look over to the left or over to the right, someone else is going through something much more difficult.”
“So we say count our blessings,” she added. “Let’s move forward, let’s have a real fun summer, and let’s just keep it rolling.”
