In the picture they were both wearing novelty hats and holding glasses of champagne, as they relaxed in their New York apartment with classic Christmas decorations including a tree with white lights. The 57-year-old posted the snaps and captioned them: "Here's to 2022," and her friends and fans were quick to comment, with ABC star Deborah Roberts writing: "So weird not to be with you!"

"Hoda, thank you for carrying us through the last few years with your genuine spirit and smile! Cheers to 2022," shared one fan as another called her "precious" and shared their love for the presenter and her Today co-star Jenna Bush Hager.

Hoda is a much-loved member of the Today family and not only co-anchors the main show but co-hosts the fourth hour too, Today with Hoda & Jenna, alongside Jenna.

She has been open about her and Joel's decision to adopt their two girls, but often chooses to keep the youngsters out of the limelight.

The star has close friendships with her co-stars and was among those to attend Al Roker and Deborah's daughter Courtney's wedding in June.

She also regularly has playdates with Savannah Guthrie and Jenna, who have children of similar ages to hers.

Hoda and Joel will no doubt invite many of their friends to their nuptials when they tie the knot after being forced to postpone their wedding several times in 2020 due to the pandemic. While she originally wanted the wedding to take place on the beach in Mexico, Hoda has hinted that her upcoming nuptials will be a little closer to home now, with a beach in New York being on the cards.

She also revealed during a previous episode of Today that her sister Hala will be her maid of honor.

"You know what's weird is you plan something and you had it all in stone and then everything got uprooted and now we're planning it again and there's something weird," the mom-of-two added.

Hoda got engaged to Joel in 2019 and excitedly shared the news live on TV with her co-stars.

She explained how Joel popped the question on vacation: "We ended up having a little dinner on the beach and he was like, 'I have something else I would like to say,' and he said some beautiful things, and then he got down on one knee. Then he said, 'Would you be my wife?' I was totally shocked. He had a good poker face."
