Hoda Kotb had a very human moment on the Today show this morning.
The 55-year-old celebrated anchor got emotional while interviewing New Orleans Saints quarterback, Drew Brees, who pledged $5 million to coronavirus relief in New Orleans.
Kotb, who has deep ties to the Crescent City, began to tear up as she discussed the toll the pandemic has taken on Louisiana. Thankfully, Brees has stepped in to help feed residents in need during this trying time. Kotb expressed her hope that generosity like Brees’s proves to also be contagious and, as they swapped “love ya’s” and signed off, Kotb began to cry (while maintaining that beautiful smile and a strong sense of professionalism).
