TODAY host Hoda Kotb says she’s ‘bummed’ as she and fiance Joel Schiffman postpone destination wedding due to COVID-19

TODAY host Hoda Kotb revealed she might not be walking down the aisle as soon as she’d hoped.

The TV personality, 55, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday and said that it’s likely her wedding to fiance Joel Schiffman will be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The “bummed”-out talk show host has been dating her New York financier beau since 2013 and engaged to him since November 2019.

Hoda shared that they planned on having a “destination wedding” soon but now they’re “guessing that it will” have to be delayed because of COVID-19.

Opening up about the hard situation, the 55-year-old said:” [It] would mean people are getting on planes so we were kind of holding out to see what could happen.

“But the destination that we were going to is turning into one of the hot spots so it looks like we may have to postpone.

“We’re kind of bummed about that because the place we were going was like our favorite place on Earth. We love it there.”

Hoda added: “I know we should say, ‘Who cares, it doesn’t matter’ but we waited a long time so I sure hope we get to have it.”

In 2017, the talk show host revealed she’d adopted a baby girl named Haley Joy.

A couple of years later, Hoda announced she’d adopted a second daughter, Hope Catherine.

This past November, she told all of her TODAY viewers, live on the show, that she’d gotten engaged to boyfriend Joel.

Despite possibly having to change her wedding plans, quarantining with her longtime love has confirmed to Hoda that she’s with the person she’s meant to be with.

She said on Ellen’s show, which recently hit a season low in ratings: I’m with the best person on Earth. I know a thousand times over.

“Being cooped up, you know right away if you chose right and I know I did.”
