Children truly are a blessing. But let’s face it. They can also be pretty exhausting!

So one day, as Hoda Kotb struggled to get baby Hope to take a nap, she unexpectedly got a little help from her friends — Joanna and Chip Gaines!

Chip And Joanna Gaines Show Does The Trick

When Mother’s Day 2019 arrived, with two beautiful daughters to call her own, Hoda Kotb age 54 had a lot to celebrate.

The day was perfect. She enjoyed a home cooked meal by Hoda Kotb’s partner, Joel Schiffman. Her 2-year-old daughter, Haley Joy, surprised her with a handmade card.

Next, came some time to rest. And as anyone who has raised kids knows, naptime is music to a mom’s ears.

The only problem is one-month-old baby Hope wasn’t going down without a fight!

Hoda Kotb’s daughter was restless and fussy. Nothing seemed to be working. But then, God sent a miracle in the way of Fixer Upper!

“Let me tell you, I put her in the bassinet right by the TV, even though I know you’re not supposed to,” Hoda explained. "She won't sleep, she won't sleep, I click on Chip and Joanna - she is out cold!”

For whatever reason, the sound of Joanna and Chip Gaines making home improvement magic just knocks Hope right out!

"I don't know what it is, but I love it," she said.
