We know Joel Schiffman was previously married but details of her first marriage prior to meeting Hoda Kotb are unknown. We do, however, know that in 2013, during a Wall Street event, Joel and Hoda met for the first time, after which they began a relationship. The couple kept their relationship away from media attention until 2015 when Hoda announced that she had been in a relationship with Joel for two years.
