Over the weekend, Hoda Kotb took a nostalgic trip down memory lane, accompanied by her 4-year-old daughter, Hope. Hoda brought Hope along to the 60th anniversary celebration of her high school’s opening and even invited her up to the podium as she addressed her former classmates. Hoda is an alumna of Fort Hunt High School in Alexandria, Virginia, which closed down 38 years ago. Despite the years that have passed, many alumni gathered for this significant event, with Hoda as the keynote speaker.
“Do you know what happened when they organized a reunion for the entire school? Everyone came,” Hoda enthusiastically shared on October 2 during her appearance on “TODAY with Hoda & Jenna.” Her face lit up as she described how her fellow alumni had achieved remarkable things in their lives. She also mentioned her own life journey, which took off after she turned 50, highlighting the joys of motherhood with her daughters, Hope (4) and Haley (6).
“It was so much fun. At the end, I shared a story about being a late bloomer in high school and in life, and how all the best things in my life happened after turning 50,” Hoda reflected. She continued, “I talked about how I had my girls after 50,” noting that she had brought Hope along while Haley enjoyed some quality “grandma time” back home.
Hoda further shared, “I’ve said that one of the most wonderful phone calls I ever received in my life was when the phone rang, and it was the adoption agency. I didn’t know what it felt like to give birth, as I’ve never experienced it. But when you receive a phone call, and you pick up the receiver, and I said, ‘Hello,’ and the woman on the other end, from the adoption agency, said, ‘She’s here.’ And in that moment, I thought, ‘She’s here.'”
