Fans were quick to send messages of support, with one responding to Hoda's tweet: "Hope you're doing well Hoda, sending you, Joel and the girls lots of love and prayers to get through this as quickly and safely as possible."

A second said: "Get Well, Hoda! Already miss your laughter & sparkle!" A third added: "Praying for Jesus to intervene and heal you."

Hoda did not reveal which home she is currently isolating in. The TV star and her fiancé Joel Schiffman have two beautiful homes: an apartment in Upper Manhattan, New York, and a four-bedroom waterfront property on Long Island.

It is more than likely though that she is still in Manhattan having celebrated New Year's Eve at their apartment.

Hoda gave fans a rare look into her home life over the holidays, sharing two snaps on her Instagram, one of her two daughters Haley Joy and Hope Catherine dancing together, and another with Joel.
