Al Roker shared Hoda's challenging but sweet parenting moment 

While Hoda has been absent from her usual spot alongside Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker, the weatherman is supporting his friend and colleague on her latest adventure. 

He took to Instagram too and posted a segment from the Fourth Hour of the show, during which Hoda was reunited with her children for a comical and very real parenting moment. 

Carrying her daughters in her arms, she said: "I got two little ones. These two girls are going to fall in love with the city just as much as I have over the years. So thank you for welcoming them."

She then asked her daughters as she handed them back to her friend behind the camera: "Are you now ready to go back and hang out?" to which her youngest replied: "I'm not ready!"
"Back to you Jenna," Hoda said as she turned to Jenna, as she tried to comfort her daughters.
