The adorable three-year-old delighted her presenter mother by simply writing the word "mom" with a blue marker pen on a yellow piece of paper.

"Fav name tag ever," the 56-year-old co-anchor of Today captioned the picture, which showed the note. Hoda, who adopted Hayley in 2017 and her youngest daughter Hope Catherine back in 2019, was inundated with advice on how to preserve the meaningful gift.

"Save them get plastic sheet covers for 3 ring binders," one suggested, whilst another one said: "Date the back of it with a note to where you found it so that when you're looking at it years from now you can remember exactly this moment."

"Have the writing turned into jewellery!" a third fan said. A fourth noted: "Still carrying one in my wallet from 1989."

Hoda shared the sweet note with her followers

Opening up about their reunion, which the star described as her "most memorable moment of the year", Hoda told PEOPLE: "I think for every single person, when they get to hug someone they haven't seen in a while, that is probably the moment you don't forget.

"You can almost close your eyes and exhale and imagine what that would feel like if it hasn't happened yet. So I think [my most memorable moment this year] was when we put [my mom] in a hermetically sealed car and had her drive here.

"And I think that moment, seeing her, hugging her was probably my favourite. And then watching her hug my kids just eclipsed that. I mean, I think that moment when you're like, 'Oh my God, this is happening' and they would not let her go."
