We know meeting your mate in a bookstore is practically a cliche these days, but we love Hoda Kotb's unusual how-I-met-my-man story.
Kotb is best known as a host for the television show Today, and, thanks to Kathie Lee's endless on-air commentary on Kotb's love status, she's also become one of the most notoriously single faces of morning television.

That's not to say Kotb is without suitors. At one point last year, Red Eye host Bill Schulz started a half-joking campaign to date the anchor, telling Mediaite, "This whole thing just started because I have way too much time on my hands and I was watching the show and I realized that Kathie Lee was always harping on Hoda’s singlehood. It wasn’t necessarily mean-spirited but it was bothering me. And I thought she needed a partner in this crazy game we call life. And I would like to be that."

Kotb promised to take Schulz's date request under consideration, but she ended up finding her man at a big city bookstore, just like the heroine of pretty much every Meg Ryan movie ever made. The unusual part of the story? Kotb wasn't approached by her suitor directly. Instead, she was wooed by his daughters.
According to the New York Post, Kotb was signing copies of her book, "Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer and Kathie Lee", at a Manhattan Barnes & Noble when she was approached by two young girls. Instead of asking for her autograph, the girls presented her with a list entitled "Ten Reasons To Date Our Dad".
Kobt, who relayed the tale to a crowd at 21 yesterday morning, joked "And you know what? They were right! You never know!"

The dad in question is a Manhattan lawyer named Jay, and apparently his daughters have great taste, since the happy couple have been together for over four months. Whatever will Kathie Lee have to talk about now?
