Family: The mother-daughter swimwear was a gift from her mother, Sameha Kotb, whom she enjoyed a visit with over the weekend
Hoda even received a comment from the official Lilly Pulitzer Instagram account that said: ‘Nothing better than Mommy and me matching. Happy summer! xx.’
The mother-of-two may have been given the swimsuits over the weekend during a recent visit with her mom, Sameha.
On Saturday, she posted a series of photos of herself with her mother, brother, and niece, writing: ‘Hanging with mom and company this weekend.’
Hoda, who was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 42 years old, came out of treatment unable to conceive and believed for a long time that motherhood just wasn’t in the cards for her.

Parents’ night out: Hoda and her longtime boyfriend, Joel Schiffman, celebrated their six-year anniversary watching the Philharmonic in Central Park on June 12
Ten years later, she became a mother for the first time when she adopted Haley in February 2017 with the support of her longtime partner, financier Joel Schiffman.
After opening about her desire to adopt another child, they welcomed their second daughter, Hope Catherine, into their family a few months ago.
Hoda has been on maternity leave since she announced she adopted Hope in April, and she has been enjoying plenty of fun in the sun with her daughters this summer.
Earlier this month, she and Joel celebrated their six-year anniversary with a night out in Central Park to watch a free concert.
Sill celebrating: The couple’s anniversary was actually June 4, and she took to Instagram the day after to pay tribute to Joel while sharing this sweet snapshot

In the snapshot, Hoda looks relaxed in a sunny yellow and white striped button-down blouse and jeans, while Joel matches her in a checked button-down and shorts.
‘Joel and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary tonight in @centralparknyc,’ she wrote on Instagram. ‘The Philharmonic played for us and 49,999 of our closest friends… a free concert on a gorgeous night.’
Hoda went on to thank their friend Cindy for packing them a ‘surprise picnic basket’ for the special outing.

The couple’s anniversary actually fell on June 4, but Hoda spent the day in visiting the Sesame Place theme park in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, with her Sesame Street-loving daughter Haley Joy.
However, the next day, she paid tribute to her live-in boyfriend and thanked Today show producer Joanne LaMarca for helping them get together.
‘Yesterday marked 6 years with this incredible man. 6 years..2 children..2 new jobs…1 grateful heart ps thank you @jolamathisen and #tyler .. if it weren’t for you two.. we never would have met on that night,’ Hoda wrote on Instagram.
Along with the touching post, the mother-of-two shared a photo of herself cuddled up to Joel at a romantic dinner.
