Blake is just one of many of Haley’s new friends. The little girl has already met Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira and Savannah Guthrie, not to mention Kotb’s boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, whom Haley will know as dad.

“I thought if it’s meant to be, if my child is out there, then it will happen, and if it’s not, it’s the way it was meant to be,” Kotb told PEOPLE of the possibility of having a child 10 years after undergoing cancer treatment that left her unable to do so biologically. “I decided to go on with life but just believe.”


Now, Haley is the “puzzle piece” Kotb was missing all along. And once the new mom returns to work, at least we know who’ll be watching over Haley!
