Their outing in New York looked magical 

Hoda adopted both of her children with her fiancé, Joel Shiffman, and recently recalled an emotional story as she marked World Adoption Day on her show.

Speaking to her co-host, Jenna Bush Hager, Hoda said: "I always tell Haley, like she will see someone who is pregnant and she will ask 'Is there a baby in that tummy?' and I will tell her there is.

"And then she will ask me if she came from my tummy and I tell her 'No, you came from mommy's heart.'"

"She sometimes points at my necklace and asks 'That heart?' And I'm like no," the star said smiling. "But you came from there," she continued, pointing to her chest.
