Hoda Kotb Finally Reveals Engagement to Joel Schiffman After 6 Years of Relationship



The television fans went gaga on Monday over an announcement from an anchor of NBC’s “Today” Hoda Kotb, 55 years old. The surprise from her co-workers’ faces was just of delight to the television viewers.

She said, “I have to tell you something that a friend of mine, a friend of ours, asked to tell you guys in on a secret. I will give you her initials. Her initials are Hoda Kotb, and she’s engaged”.

And then newly-engaged anchor showed off her hand under her desk, and there was the engagement ring that was of the right size. Her co-anchors were just so happy to have known about that news.

Kotb said that Joel Schiffman proposed during dinner while they were on vacation in Mexico. She narrated, “And he was like, I have something else I would like to say. He said some beautiful things, and then he got down on one knee and said, “Would you be my wife?”. The anchor was in total awe with the proposal. She added, “My heart has literally been pounding. I was totally shocked. He’s good, and he had a good poker face.”

Also, on Monday, Kotb opened up to PEOPLE about some ideas on the big day. “I sort of think we probably want to do it sooner than later, because what are we waiting for? And I think we might do a destination wedding. We may go back to the place we were engaged. We haven’t thought about it too much, but we might do something like that. The place is special to us.”

She added, “Nothing we do is about bells and whistles in that way, so it always sorts of meant something. Something special to our relationship, in Mexico.”

Hoda Kotb continued, “All I want it to be is fun and happy, and I just want everybody to feel easy breezy. No coordinated bridesmaid. Come as you are. That the theme of the rest of my life.”

In an Instagram photo, it was seen that Kotb and Schiffman, were seen together smiling, and she is showing off her ring during that proposal dinner. It was also noticed that the couple went to the beach strand, had a photo taken with “Hoda and Joel” written on the sand with some rose petals scattered.

Joel Schiffman and Kotb have been together for 6 years already and adopted 2 children, Haley Joy, who is 2, and Hope Catherine, still, an infant when she joined the family in April. They are still trying to figure out how to tell them about the marriage. “I think they would just think it’s a party that shows mom and dad and how much they love each other. We are just going to say we’re having a party to how much we love each other.

Kotb has been married before to Burzis Kanga for two years from 2005-2007. His relationship with Schiffman started in 2015 and was happily yelling, “He’s the guy that gives me butterflies at 50 years old.”
