The new mom, 52, surprised fans by bringing her 12-week-old baby on the show.
“We’ve got another Mother’s Day surprise for you,” said Matt Lauer. “This is probably going to be trending in about a nanosecond — #HaleyJoy!”
The proud mama held her daughter and said, “Hi little girl!” as Lauer, Al Roker, Savannah Guthrie and Carson Daly all gushed over the tot.
“So this is the love of our lives,” said Guthrie. “Look at how strong [she is]! She’s holding her head up.”
Lauer added: “Have you ever seen cheeks like that?”
The proud mama said, “Okay, can I just say something? I’m holding my baby on Mother’s Day weekend. I’m so happy.”
Guthrie added: “Haley, do you know you have the best Momma in the world?”
Kotb surprised fans when she announced on Feb. 21 that she had adopted Haley, who was born on Feb. 14.
