The TV star loves her job and enjoys working alongside her co-stars, but over the summer she has made the decision to spend more time at home.

Taking time off work has resulted in Hoda being able to be with her two young daughters, Haley and Hope, who she shares with ex-fiancé Joel Schiffman.

However, it is likely that when the summer draws to an end, Hoda will be back to her regular work schedule alongside Savannah Guthrie - who has also taken a lot of time off over the summer to be with her young children, Vale and Charles.

Hoda worships every second she has with her children, having recently opened up about the realities of being an older mom.

In an interview with People, the NBC star explained: "They're [Haley and Hope] going to have each other forever, and that's what really fills me to the top. Because any older parent knows one of our secret fears is that we won't be there for milestones. The other day they were playing on their scooters, and they said, 'Super sisters save the day!' I thought to myself, 'Yes, super sisters — forever, you guys have each other.' Nothing makes me feel more peaceful."
