The doting mom revealed to her co-star Jenna Bush Hager that she wasn't the only member of her family to test positive, as her two young daughters have also had Covid.

She told Jenna: "My kids had had it so a doctor was saying to me, 'You have a two-year-old and a four-year-old, where are you going to isolate? You have to take care of your kids.'

Their original plan was a destination wedding, but this was put on hold due to the travel restrictions.

Most recently, Hoda revealed she would be happy with a wedding close to home, and hinted that a beach wedding near New York was an option.
