Matt Lauer Reacts to Hoda Kotb Replacing Him on Today

After being named Lauer's successor as co-anchor of Today, Hoda revealed that Matt Lauer was among those who privately congratulated her on the promotion. "He was sweet this morning. Certain texts popped up, and there was one from Matt: 'Congratulations! And he said some nice words." Lauer has stayed out of the public eye since he was fired from NBC News in November amid allegations of sexual misconduct. Lauer has not publicly congratulated Kotb, but many of her colleagues—including Jenna Bush Hager, Carson Daly, Sheinelle Jones, Megyn Kelly and Al Roker—have done so via social media.

Saint West is on the mend (and home recovering) after battling a case of pneumonia. He was hospitalized for 3 days due to the illness, Kardashian West wrote on Instagram yesterday: “My precious baby boy is so strong! After spending three nights in the hospital & seeing my baby get multiple IV’s and hooked up to oxygen machines, our end of year was challenging. Pneumonia is so scary.
