The Today show star will be in isolation on her special day after testing positive for COVID-19 for the second time.

Fans rushed to send prayers and wished her a swift recovery. "Oh no! Please feel better and try to Happy Mother’s Day without your darlings," wrote one, while another added: "Oh SG!!! That stinks!! I hope you get to hug your babies soon or at least get a Mothers Day do over."

Savannah - who didn't clarify if her two children, Charley and Vale have tested positive - was only struck down with the virus the first time around at the beginning of the year, just after her co-host, Hoda Kotb, caught it.
