The pair soon bonded over family life, with the Today star even inspiring the Skims founder with a parenting hack she uses on her two young daughters, Haley and Hope.

While talking about their children, Hoda told Kim: "My favorite parenting hack when asking my kids something when I want to know more is asking them, 'Tell me more'.

"That's it, my only line to them, and out comes more. If I ask them something specific they are like, 'I don't know, nothing,' but [if you ask] tell me more, [they are like] 'Let me think of something Mom,' and they tell me some beautiful story."
