Hoping for a second chance!

A source says Hoda Kotb is in a world of pain since splitting from fiancé Joel Schiffman — so much so that she's trying to persuade him to give their romance one more shot.

Kotb, 57, who called it quits with the financier, 63, in January after eight years together "is an emotional wreck," the source claims. "She gets tear at everything at the drop of a hat, to the point where people are walking on eggshells trying not to upset her."

The Today anchor — who shares daughters Haley, 4, and Hope, 2, with her ex — "is finding that being a single mom is a lot harder than she imagined, and she's been asking Joel for one more chance," shares the source, "But so far, he's not interested."

Part of their downfall was their wedding, which the source says was on hold for two years because Schiffman wanted something small, but Kotb had her heart set on a grand affair.

The former pair got engaged in November 2019 after going public with their romance back in 2015.

"She worries she messed [things] up and is making all sorts of promises to Joel, hoping that he'll come around," the insider adds.

Kotb first announced she and Schiffman called off their engagement during an episode of the Today show, where she acknowledged why she hadn't been wearing her engagement ring.

"Joel and I have had a lot of prayerful and meaningful conversations over the holidays and we decided that we are better as friends and parents than we are as an engaged couple, so we decided we are going to start this new year on our new path as loving parents to our adorably delightful children and as friends," she explained at the time, as OK! learned.

"It's not like something happened," she lamented. "They say sometimes relationships are meant to be there for a reason, a season or a lifetime, this was for a season."
