The search for Kotb's next partner comes almost one year after she announced her split from fiancé Joel Schiffman, 64, with whom she shares adopted daughters Haley, 5, and Hope, 3.

"Joel and I have had a lot of prayerful and meaningful conversations over the holidays, and we decided that we're better as friends and parents than we are as an engaged couple," the renowned journalist revealed during the Monday, January 31, episode of Today. "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."

"I think that it's like, you want what's best for your kids," Kotb continued in regard to her feelings about the estranged parents' decision. "But I think you also recognize — I'm not sure that every relationship is meant to go all the way. I think some are meant to be for a reason, a season or a lifetime."

"Sometimes people stay in something because they feel like they should. I think sometimes you kind of just need to use your voice," Kotb peacefully concluded.
