Last week, Hoda Kotb revealed that Jenna would be off for the rest of the week, meaning it is more than likely that she return on Monday.

Jenna was subbed by Michelle Collins, who sat in with Hoda, while Justin Sylvester also hosted with her earlier in the week.

It's a busy time for the Today stars, as Savannah Guthrie has also been off work, while the previous week, Hoda had a vacation with her young daughters.

Jenna is incredibly close to her Today co-stars, and recently opened up about working on the NBC daytime show while talking to HELLO! "I feel like Hoda and I laugh hysterically, we can get into that laughter where we're not supposed to laugh," Jenna admitted.

"That church laughter where we're like 'We're going to get into trouble'," she shared. Jenna is also close with Savannah, and told us: "And even the other day when Savannah was filling in with me, we were getting dressed together and I was like 'Put on something more goth'.

"It feels like we're getting dressed to go on a night out when really we're getting dressed to go and present television. It's so much fun that you really love everybody that you work with to the point that you're getting dressed together."

Jenna, like Hoda and Savannah, is mom to young children and working with fellow working parents is also a blessing. "I am so lucky to work with this group of extraordinary moms. We all have kids who are similar ages so it's been really fun and kind of wild," she said.

"It's great and I don't take it lightly. Even this weekend when I was gone, I had one kid, my husband had two, and Savannah picked up my kids and took them to church." The former teacher continued: "I can text Hoda [Kotb] and ask for advice," she said.

"I'm so lucky to work with people who I not only adore, but I can lean on them. That's the true meaning of sisterhood."
