I'll give you her initials: "Hoda Kotb, and she's engaged".

Kotb told her Today co-hosts on Monday that Schiffman "said some attractive things" when he asked her to marry him.

Hoda Kotb is engaged to her longtime financier boyfriend Joel Schiffman! The proposal appeared to take place on the beach, where the happy couple stood behind their names, which were written in the sand, as Hoda flashed her stunning ring.

While the journalist is beaming with joy, they have not yet figured out how to explain the milestone to their two younger daughters.

"How are we going to explain, 'Your parents are going to get married, '" she said.

Showing off his giant engagement ring, Kotb revealed that 61-year-old Schiffman proposed silence while on vacation.

"Ps thank you @jolamathisen and #tyler. if it weren't for you two. we never would have met on that night", she added to her friends who set her up with Schiffman. She says Schiffman was on board from the very beginning.

Since his relationship with Hoda, Joel has become the father to Haley, 2, and Hope, whom Hoda adopted. "He was like, 'I have something else I'd to say.' He said some handsome things, got down on one knee and he said, 'would you be my wife?'" "He had a good poker face". The news was announced on the November 25 episode of Today and Hoda was absolutely beaming when she shared the sweet pic from her engagement. "And he said I had something else I would like to say, and he said some nice things, and then he dropped to one knee, then he said, Would you be my wife?"

"We're still trying to figure out that part", she smiled. But you know sometimes you hate to jinx something.

"[He] has been so great", Kotb gushed about Schiffman, who has an adult daughter, Kyle, from his previous marriage. "I think it's fun like this".
