Kotb has been over the moon about her growing family, and has been posting hope-inspired content for a couple of days leading up to and after the adoption of her new daughter, hinting that the addition to her family was coming. 

The family posts weren’t all for Kotb’s Instagram on Easter Sunday. She also revealed a photo of herself giving Haley Joy a hand as they dyed Easter eggs, resulting in a plate full of colorful creations while she sported a shirt saying, “Be good to people.”
