Kotb's Instagram post received comments from her TODAY show colleagues including  Bush Hager, who wrote "You're the most loved ❤️," in response to Kotb's photo. Dylan Dreyer as well as Bravo's Andy Cohen also wished Kotb a happy birthday in the comments section.

Guthrie confirmed her friend's day off from hosting duties Tuesday morning as she and the other co-hosts wished her a happy birthday on air.

"We gave her the day off, that was the present, but I know she's watching, so Hoda, good morning, we love you, hope you're just surrounded by your love ones today and hurry back," Guthrie said during the broadcast which also showed a group of fans offering Kotb birthday wishes outside Today's studio.

"We hope it's a day of nothing today, Hoda Kotb," Craig Melvin added.
