Jenna Bush Hager's Daughter Crashes Call with Hoda Kotb

Hoda Kotb’s Reaction to Jenna Bush Hager’s Daughter Popping Into Their Call Is Hilarious

Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager have been filming their The Today Show segments from home, but on April 14, Jenna had a mini guest join their "con-friends-call." Because Jenna moving closer to her wireless router meant sitting in a room that was "risky," in the middle of chatting with Hoda, Jenna's 7-year-old daughter Mila popped her head into the call.

It wasn't exactly a "BBC Dad" situation seeing as tons of parents are working from home with kids underfoot, but Hoda's adorable reaction to seeing Mila proves it's still pretty funny to see unexpected "coworkers" in work-from-home conference calls.

In the middle of Hoda talking about what dating couples are experiencing amid this pandemic, Mila slowly slides her head in front of the camera, and Hoda immediately loses it. "I told you it was risky!" Jenna tells a laughing Hoda. "When I chose this place, I knew there could be a sneaker! This is not a closed-off location." Once Hoda stops laughing, she realises that Mila is in her full school uniform, and it turns out that there's a hilarious reason for it. "You know why we wear it?" Jenna tells her. "We wear it five days a week, we take if off, and we're not doing as much laundry!" Genius.

Then, with Mila in the room the pair effortlessly shift from talking relationship hurdles to baking boxed brownies (a superior topic, in our opinion) as Mila braids Jenna's hair. See the whole segment in the video above — Mila is clearly the breakout star, but Hoda and Jenna's friendship is always our favourite part of any Today With Hoda & Jenna clip.
