    (CNN) -- Hoda Kotb has welcomed another daughter.

"Today" co-anchor announced she adopted a little girl named Hope Catherine Kotb.

Kotb shared the news during a phone call into her show on Tuesday.

"Today" shared a photo of Kotb with her new baby and her older daughter, two-year-old Haley Joy, on social media.

"Congratulations are in order for @hodakotb, who adopted a second little girl, Hope Catherine, this week," the caption on the Instagram photo read.

Kotb, 54, hinted at her expanded family on her official Instagram account earlier Monday, sharing a photo that read: "Choose Hope."

"Happy Monday xx," she wrote in the caption.

Kotb surprised viewers in 2017 when she revealed that she was a first-time mom, having adopted Haley Joy.

On Tuesday, Kotb said during the show that Haley Joy had already taken to her new role.

"This morning at breakfast [Haley] was trying to feed [the new baby] her raspberries and I was like, 'Not yet, babe,''' Hoda said. "She was literally marching around saying, 'I'm a big sister.'''
