Today show star Hoda Kotb shared a picture of Savannah Guthrie holding a baby on Sunday.
The picture instantly made Today fans wonder if either Savannah or Hoda were sharing baby news.
Both Hoda and Savannah have children — Hoda has two daughters, Haley and Hope, while Savannah is a mom to two sons, Charles and Vale.
Hoda told People in the fall that she and her fiancé, Joel Schiffman, have considered adopting a third child together.
The photo in question features the two smiling Today stars posing together while Savannah cradles a baby. "#Family. Happy bday @savannahguthrie ❤️❤️," Hoda captioned the sweet picture in honor of Savannah's 49th birthday. After seeing the post, Savannah replied in the comment section, "Love you so."
While most of Hoda's followers offered up their birthday wishes to Savannah in response, the fourth-hour Today cohost also received lots of questions — particularly, about the baby in the photo. "Do you have a happy announcement?💕," one fan asked. Another chimed in, "Savannah who does that baby belong to?" A different fan wondered, "Wait. Is this a new pic? Who has a baby? 💕💕💕. Meanwhile several other followers guessed that the baby in the picture was Hoda's 1-year-old daughter, Hope, who was adopted back in April of 2019.
Turns out, the snapshot is actually a throwback regram from March of 2017, a few weeks after Hoda adopted her 3-year-old daughter, Haley. Back then, Hoda made it clear that Savannah was holding Haley in the photo. "Aunt Savannah showed us how to swaddle!!! Happy Haley xoxo ❤️❤️❤️," Hoda captioned the picture.
Of course, it's understandable that folks thought Hoda was hinting at baby news in the Instagram. After all, Hoda did tell People this past October that she and her fiancé, Joel Schiffman, have considered adopting a third child together in the future.
"I've obviously had a conversation with Joel about it, many conversations — but I feel like, well, can we? Yes. Will our family be better with it? Yes. Do we have enough love in the house? Yes. All the answers seem to say yes," Hoda revealed to the outlet. "I think then you just wait and see if it's meant to be for you."
We'll see what happens! But for now, we just hope Savannah had a fantastic birthday celebration this past weekend.
