Talking about the adoption, she divulged,
“I was afraid to even say it out loud, because then it felt so real.”
“I said, ‘Think about it for a day or a week or whatever,’ ” she explained. “And he said, ‘I don’t need a day. Let’s get this journey going.’ At that point I blubbered like a baby. It was like the dam burst.”
After her boyfriend accepted the adoption, she together with a licensed New York adoption agency, started the process of adopting her first daughter.
Within a month of the process, they welcomed home a baby girl, born February 14th, at their residence in New York. Talking about her wish to become a mother, she divulged,
“One of the things in my life I’ve always wanted was to be a mom. Sometimes in your life, things just don’t work out for whatever reason, so you say, ‘Well, I wasn’t meant to have that.’ But it was really hard to come to terms with it.”
But looks like she accepted her problem and now the 52-years-old Today journalist is happy with her daughter and boyfriend.
