On Tuesday, May 17, Kotb attended the Annual Most Powerful People in New York Media alongside colleagues Savannah Guthrie and Jenna Bush Hager, where the trio dished about their pal's budding love life.
"It's a feral girl summer, and we're leading the charge!" the former first daughter jokingly told Entertainment Tonight of Kotb getting back out there.
The I Really Needed This Today: Words to Live By author dished that while she is "tiptoeing along" when it comes to dating, she has been basking in having more quality time with daughters Hayley, 5, and Hope, 2.
"I'm really enjoying my kids and my life. I'm treasuring this time," Kotb said of her new chapter, as Guthrie chimed in noting, "And anybody who wants to date Hoda has to go through us first."
"Yeah, and good luck," Hager added. "She's got two sisters who are wildly protective. Good luck!"
As OK! previously reported, Kotb made the shocking announcement that she and the entrepreneur were going their separate ways after nearly a decade together during an episode of the morning news show.
"Joel and I have had, we've had a lot of prayerful and really meaningful conversations over the holidays, and we decided that we're better as friends and parents than we are as an engaged couple," the television host said of the reasoning behind their split.
Although Kotb played coy while addressing her single life, a source exclusively spilled to OK! that the mother-of-two has been super invested in getting back into the dating scene.
“She’s been eyeing and chatting up taxi drivers, doormen and even strangers on the street. Hoda’s apparently done with slick city types and is looking to find an ordinary Joe," the insider close to Kotb revealed.
