The weekend just gone, meanwhile, Hoda invited her co-star Jenna Bush Hager and Fourth Hour executive producer Talia Parkinson-Jones to her home, along with their children.
While Hoda loves being at home with her children – admitting that her routine is very similar to theirs because of her early starts – which see her go to bed most nights at 7.30pm – she also enjoys being at work alongside fellow working parents.
