AceShowbiz - Hoda Kotb was touched by Jamie Lee Curtis' thoughtfulness. On Tuesday, March 14, when the "Everything Everywhere All at Once" actress made an appearance on "Today" for a post-Oscars win interview, the NBC morning show's co-host revealed that the latter had sent special gifts for her kids.
"I was opening packages in my apartment last night, all of the Amazon stuff that you get," Hoda first recalled. "And Jamie Lee, I open the package and inside I saw two teddy bears and a beautiful 'My Hand in Yours' that you had given to my girls," the mother of two then noted, referencing to the actress' company My Hand in Yours.
Hoda went on to reveal that along with the gift came a touching message that read, "I know it was scary. This is for your girls from you." She continued by pointing out what made the gift even more special. "I thought to myself, 'In the middle of her shining moment in her life, she is sending something to me and my kids,' " she said.
Expressing her gratitude for the perfectly-timed gifts, Hoda told Jamie, "I can't tell you how touched and how beautiful I thought that was. And I just want to say thank you." In return, Jamie humbly replied, "You're welcome! Listen, I get it. It's the hardest thing in the world."
"There's nothing scarier than a sick kid. And that's why I made My Hand in Yours, and that's why I support Children's Hospital Los Angeles as you support your children's hospital. This is what we do," the 64-year-old, who is a mother of two herself, further explained.
Hoda made a return to "Today" in the beginning of March after taking extended leaves because of her 6-year-old daughter Hope. When explaining her absence on her return, she spilled, "My youngest, Hope, was in the ICU for a few days and in the hospital for more than a week."
"I'm so grateful she's home. She is back home," the TV personality then assured viewers. "I was waiting for that day to come. And we are watching her closely. I'm just so happy." She added, "When your child is ill, the amount of gratitude you can have for people who helped you out."
Jamie, in the meantime, took home the Best Supporting Actress award at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday night, March 12. When asked about her first win, the "Halloween" star admitted, "In my life I never thought in a million years that I would have this couple days, and I'm very moved by the whole thing."
