Hoda Kotb makes rare comment about relationship with Joel Schiffman

Hoda Kotb gave a rare insight into her relationship with her ex-fiancé, Joel Schiffman.

The “Today with Hoda and Jenna” co-host was talking with Jenna Bush Hager about the importance of children seeing their parents treat each other with love when she brought up the financier.

“I’ve only been with people who are super polite. Like, when I get up from the table, for instance, Joel got up every time –– every time –– even if it’s normal dinner,” Kotb said on a pre-recorded episode of the morning show, which aired Thursday.

Bush Hager, 42, gushed that Kotb, 59, probably saw her own dad treating her mom similarly, so that’s what she “expects” from a partner.

“Yes, it’s what you deserve, what you feel like, ‘Oh yeah, I deserve that,’ but I do think it also shows like, when your kids are watching, ‘Oh that’s how two people treat one another,’ [and] not like, ‘Get me this!’” Kotb continued.

Kotb mentioned Schiffman, 66, again later in the show when the co-hosts discussed accidentally wearing your boyfriend’s clothing.

“The only thing I ever did was, Joel and I had the exact same pairs of sneakers — except for different sizes I assumed — and when I put on his sneaker and it fit, and he was like, ‘Where are my sneakers?’ I go, ‘I don’t know,’ he goes, ‘They were right here!’”

Kotb confirmed that she had accidentally grabbed his pair and they “fit.”

“It was sad!” Kotb said while laughing. “I go, ‘Those are your sneakers?!’ He goes, ‘Yeah,’ I was like, ‘Oh my God, that is sad!’”

Kotb previously gave viewers glimpses into her relationship with Schiffman since the exes continue to co-parent their two adopted daughters: Haley, 7, and Hope, 4.

The couple broke up in December 2021 after dating for eight years and being engaged for two.

“It’s not like something happened,” Kotb clarified on “Today with Hoda & Jenna” in January 2022.

“They say sometimes relationships are meant to be there for a reason, for a season or for a lifetime, and I feel like ours was meant to be there for a season.”

However, the “Today” show co-anchor has since moved on and has been dating a mystery man whom Bush Hager set her up with.

Kotb revealed earlier this month that they were planning a third date after the first two went well.

The “Hope Is A Rainbow” author has yet to share the identity of the new guy, but Page Six obtained photos of her walking with a man in New York City last week.
