Hoda Kotb is bringing her emotional truth again to Today. The anchor started crying after discussing coronavirus' devastating impact on Louisiana with football player Drew Brees. The quarterback donated $5 million to help those affected by the virus in the Bayou State, where Hoda worked as a journalist for years.

Kotb told Brees, "We love ya," before beginning to cry. Co-anchor Savannah Guthrie said comfortingly:

Hoda, I know it's a lot. Hoda, I'm so sorry, hon. Take a moment. It's a lot. I know where your heart is, my dear, I do.
