A new challenged for Hoda

In an exclusive with 'People' magazine, Hoda Kotb, the cherished face of morning TV, has bravely opened up about the "scary stretch" that had her youngest, Hope, in the hospital's grip early this year. "It's like you just can't believe that your child's sick," Kotb recounted, her voice a mix of relief and lingering concern.

Despite the stabilized condition, Kotb has taken the bold step to not disclose the specifics of Hope's diagnosis. "I don’t want people to look at her differently," she insists, determined to shield her daughter from labels that might dim her vibrant spirit.

Life has taken a turn for Kotb, who now juggles extra help to monitor Hope's health, ensuring that every day feels as normal as possible for the resilient 4-year-old. "We're trying to make everything normal," she explains, a testament to a mother's unyielding dedication.

Sleepless nights have become a staple for Kotb, who listens intently for Hope's monitor, a silent sentinel against the night's uncertainty. "It's too much for a kid to carry," she says, her maternal instincts fiercely guarding Hope's childhood from the shadows of worry.

In times of trial, Kotb's "Today" show family, alongside her own kin, have rallied like a fortress of support and love. From hospital visits by Al Roker to birthday cheer by Savannah Guthrie, Kotb's gratitude is palpable. "This is the most support I’ve ever had," she beams.
