Her social media followers were delighted when she posted a sweet clip of the girls playing together, but they were saddened to only catch a glimpse of her oldest daughter, Haley's face, and not Hope's. 

In the video, the two girls were busy playing with their toys before Haley turned to face the camera and sweetly said: "Happy Mother's Day mama, I love you."

While many of Hoda's fans were quick to comment on how adorable the four-year-old was, others quizzed the TV star on why little Hope didn't turn around to also face the camera.

Last October, Hoda revealed during an interview on The Drew Barrymore Show that she had filled in the paperwork to start the adoption process for baby number three.

She confirmed: "We have a lot of love in this house do we have space for more love? Yes, we do. Would our family be enhanced? Yes, it would. Are there children who need us too? Yes, there are.'

"Every answer is yes. Look, it's not in our hands now. We filled out the paperwork and said it's in god's hands now, like come what may."
