Hoda Kotb, the “Today” anchor of the NBC “Morning News” broke the news of her engagement to the public today

“I have to tell you something that a friend of mine, a friend of ours, asked me to let you guys in on a secret,” Kotb said.  “she’s engaged.”

She then pulled out her hand from under the desk where she had been hiding a very large end expensive engagement ring. 

Hoda and Joel have been together for over six years. The couple have been together for six years and are the adoptive parents of two daughters, Haley Joy, 2, and infant Hope Catherine.

Kotb said Schiffman popped the question over the weekend during dinner on the beach while the pair were vacationing. 

“And he was like, ‘I have something else I would like to say,'” she said. “He said some beautiful things and then he got down on one knee. He said ‘Would you be my wife?”’ She said she was totally surprised by his proposal. “He’s good,” she said. “He had a good poker face.” 

Kotb also joked about how they were going to tell their young daughters, “Your parents are going to get married.”
