Hoda Kotb Cozies Up To Mystery Man In NYC

The U.S. Sun snapped photos of Hoda Kotb out and about with a new mystery man in NYC. The pair could be seen walking closely and sharing an intimate conversation.

Hoda was sporting her usual long, brown locks. She was wearing a puffy gray winter coat with an orange shirt underneath. The Today host was also wearing flared jeans and a backpack-style purse hung on her shoulders.

Her mystery man wore a navy blue suit with a white t-shirt underneath. He appeared to be about the same height as Hoda and had a short brown hairstyle. They appeared to be enjoying each other’s company as they strolled through the streets of NYC.

The 59-year-old recently spoke about being set up by her co-host, Jenna Bush Hager. Hoda Kotb admitted that she had been on three dates with the mystery man since Jenna introduced them. However, it is not clear if the man she was spotted in New York City is the same person or not.

“A setup, ’cause that means somebody kind of knows you and kind of knows them,” Hoda said regarding the introduction.”I like that a little bit better than random person number three.”

The Today Host Has Been Focused On Family

There is no wonder as to why it has taken Hoda Kotb a couple of years to get back into the dating game. Her relationship with Joel Schiffman came to an emotional end in 2022. The Today host teared up discussing the separation on the morning talk show. The couple shares two adopted daughters: Hope, 4, and Haley, 7. Hoda is the primary parent of the two girls.

On top of the breakup, Hoda had a huge health scare with her 4-year-old last year. She has opened up about how Hope wound up in the ICU and spent nearly a week in the hospital. Since then, Hoda Kotb says that her perspective on life has changed.
