Hoda Kotb surprises 'Today' colleagues with visit from daughter Haley Joy ahead of Mother's Day

The mother of all surprises!

Hoda Kotb, 52, ended the week by surprising her "Today" co-hosts on Friday with the most epic treat of all -- a visit from her little girl Haley Joy!

Haley Joy, who is currently three-months-old, appeared on the show for the first time ever. Hoda suddenly left her seat at the studio's round table to grab her adopted daughter, who was with her mother Sameha.

"So this is the love of our lives," Savannah Guthrie said.

"I just want to say something. This is our baby," Hoda told her colleagues. Aww!

Of course, Savannah, Matt Lauer and Al Roker took turns holding Hoda's adorable baby girl.

"Have you ever seen cheeks like this?" Matt gushed.

The "Today" show anchors were definitely enthralled with the little tyke. See their adorable exchanges with Haley Joy below:

Hoda also took the time to point out how grateful she was for Haley Joy ahead of Mother's Day. Kotb will be celebrating her first Mother's Day as a mom this weekend.

"Can I just say something? I am holding my baby on Mother's Day weekend," the first-time mom told her colleagues. "I am so happy. All I could think about was how fun it was to bring her here because I feel like we have all had a little of her."

Hoda returned to "Today" in April, two months after taking the time off to be with her newly-adopted daughter. During her first episode back as a mom, she shed tears of joy and reached for a tissue as she told Savannah and Matt: "I don't think I've ever been this happy."

Happy Mother's Day to Hoda and all the moms out there!
