Hoda Kotb is a doting mom and was faced with every parents' worst nightmare last week after her youngest daughter, Hope, three, was admitted to ICU.

Luckily, the little girl is now on the mend and back home, and Hoda returned to the Today Show on Monday to open up about the ordeal.

During the Fourth Hour with Jenna Bush Hager, Hoda told her friend and co-star about a subtle new change to her look and style in the video below.
