The Today show host celebrated with her fiancé, Joel Shiffman, and their two children, Haley three, and Hope, one, and when she shared a photo of them all together on Instagram her fans couldn't get over how adorable her girls are.

Hoda was all smiles with her family 

"Christmas will be very intimate for us,” she said. "It will probably be just me, Joel and the girls. It's so sad man, to think about that because we are always together," 

Despite not being physically with the rest of her family, the host said she remained grateful that she has the technology to stay connected despite the distance.  

"We'll do a Christmas morning on Zoom," she said during the sweet clip posted to the Today show Twitter account.

She got into the holiday spirit 

"I'm excited that we do get to sit with each other, even though it's virtually, and I just realised how fortunate we should realise we are to have that."

"And it'll be more special because Haley — she's three, so she's like, 'Santa's coming?!' She's writing all these letters; she wants to know how to spell 'Santa,' " Hoda added.
