Nov. 11 (UPI) -- Jenna Bush Hager has returned to Today following her son's birth.
Hager wore a polka dot ensemble and pink coat on her first day back from maternity leave. Hager and Kotb embraced as Kotb welcomed Hager back to the show.
"Jenna Bush Hager is back," Kotb announced to the crowd. "Today is her first day on the 10 o'clock show."
Kotb said she gave Hager a friendly wakeup call Monday morning.
"I called Jenna at 4:45 this morning just to say, 'It's time! Wake up!'" Kotb said.
"She was my alarm, and I have to say, what a positive way to wake up! Being surrounded with y'all," Hager said.
Hager gave birth to baby Hal in August. She and Henry Hager are also parents to two daughters, Margaret, 6, and Poppy, 4.
Later on Today, Hager got emotional while discussing Hal with Kotb.
"I can't believe that he's here and that I get to be his mom!" she said. "It feels like an unbelievable miracle to get to be this little person's mom and see his sisters love him."
