Despite their split, they remain friends and Hoda still thanks Joel for encouraging her to start a family when she didn’t think it was possible.
She told Good Housekeeping magazine: “I don’t think I would have adopted if it hadn’t been for Joel. Having a stable relationship in that moment was really important.”

But even Hoda admits there are days when parenting doesn’t go her way, but luckily she has her co-host, Savannah Guthrie, to call when things go wrong.
Hoda credits Joel for encouraging her to adopt
“I have some nights where I really messed up and I know I did,” she revealed. “And I come in the next morning [thinking], I feel terrible for what I did. What was I thinking?
“Why did I think that was going to work? They went to bed crying. Like, I don’t want that to be me. But then I talk to Savannah. She’ll say, ‘That was my Wednesday,’ it makes you feel less alone.”
