As the main anchors on the program it is unlikely they would want to take the same time off in order to avoid too much of a shake-up on the show at any given time.

However, as both Savannah and Hoda have young children, they will have wanted to spend as much time as possible with their families over the summer.

The doting moms have both been making memories with their children – with Hoda even spending the weekend with Fourth Hour co-star Jenna Bush Hager and her youngest child Hal, along with Today with Hoda and Jenna’s executive producer, Talia Parkinson-Jones, and her children.

“I have some nights where I really messed up and I know I did,” Hoda revealed. “And I come in the next morning [thinking], I feel terrible for what I did. What was I thinking? Why did I think that was going to work? They went to bed crying. Like, I don’t want that to be me. But then I talk to Savannah. She’ll say, ‘That was my Wednesday,’ it makes you feel less alone.”
