For those of you wondering when Hoda Kotb would return to the TODAY Show... the wait is over.

Hoda was back with Savannah Guthrie Tuesday morning. She had been on maternity leave.

"Welcome to TODAY on this Tuesday morning. I missed saying that," Kotb said after being welcomed back by Savannah.

"We missed having you say it, I can confirm she's real, she's with us. Hoda is back and everyone is smiling so much just to see your face," Guthrie said.

Kotb, who has daughters Haley and Hope, said she was very happy to be back.
