Last Call: 'TODAY' Star Hoda Kotb Kicks Booze For Adopted Baby

Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford's televised happy hour is over, has learned. The cohosts had brought boozing to the forefront of the fourth hour of NBC's TODAY show for years, but an insider told that Kotb, 52, has made the choice to give up drinking for her newly adopted daughter, Haley Joy.

"Hoda isn't shirking her image or responsibility," an on-set source told "But she's told producers that she'll be drinking mocktails from now on!"

According to experts, Kotb's decision was a wise one.

Mental Health expert Dr. Gilda Carle told, "If Hoda was even slightly intoxicated around her infant, it would number her ability to be able to properly respond to the baby's needs!'

But it isn't only Dr. Carle – who has not treated Kotb – who believes that boozing and babies do not mix!

Dr. Stuart Fischer said, "Rearing a child should never give way to near-intoxication, no matter what the circumstances are"

"Thank God Hoda decided to quit," Dr. Fischer, who did not treat Kotb, added. "The baby's life depended on it!"
