Hoda Kotb has become a first-time mom at the age of 52.

The co-host of NBC’s “Today” show shared the exciting news that she has adopted a child Tuesday, posting to Twitter a photograph with the tiny tot, a girl named Haley Joy.

“Be still my heart,” Kotb posted on Twitter. “My prayers have been answered #HaleyJoy and as a friend said today — she is ‘right on time.’ ”

Kotb, who hosts the fourth hour of “Today” alongside Kathy Lee Gifford, phoned into the show Tuesday, revealing that Haley was born on Feb. 14. “She’s a Valentine’s baby so she’s a little nugget ... She is the love of my life!”
