Hoda Kotb shares adorable video packing for Winter Olympics with daughter Haley Joy

Haley Joy is helping her mom get ready for the Olympics!

Hoda Kotb took to Instagram on Friday to share an adorable video of her 11-month old daughter helping her pack for the Winter Games. Haley Joy adorably helps her mom put her USA beanie into her suitcase in the clip, while Kotb folds other sweaters to take with her. 

"Thx to @jennabhager for the awesome hand-me-down poppy top!!!! Xxx," Kotb captioned the video. 

Haley Joy will be staying back in New York City with Kotb's boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, while she's in Pyeongchang, South Korea for the Winter Games. 

The Today co-anchor recently opened up about Schiffman's reaction to her adopting Haley Joy during a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres. 

“I had thought about having kids for a long, long time. But one day I was sitting with my boyfriend and I said to him, ‘I’m going to have to talk to you about something because I can’t push it down anymore, push it away,’” Kotb recalled. “I said, ‘Don’t answer now. Take a day, take a week, take some time. But I want to talk to you about this.’ And he said, ‘OK, what is it?’ And I said, ‘I would like to explore adoption with you.’”

“He looked at me and said, ‘I don’t need a day,’” she continued.  “And I knew I’d chosen the right man.”
