“It’s already Valentine’s Day in South Korea and I am missing my Valentine’s baby!” Hoda captioned this video of her singing happy birthday to Haley and presenting her with a cake. “We celebrated little Haley’s bday before I left. Admittedly I could have been a bit better with camera placement,” the mom joked.

Hoda showed off her baking skills with this pic of the adorable homemade cake she gave Haley. “Yay Haley!” was written on top in icing.
