“Hoda knows she’s skating on thin ice at work, so she wants a safe and loving environment at home,” dished a source.

“Hoda doesn’t want a big, showy affair,” the source revealed. “She loves the idea of taking off to some remote part of the world and swapping vows with just Joel and her adopted daughter, Haley, there!”
