Jamie Lee Curtis gave Hoda Kotb gift after daughter Hope’s health scare

Jamie Lee Curtis reached out to Hoda Kotb with a beautiful gift after her three-year-old daughter was rushed to intensive care.

The Hollywood icon, who took home her very first Oscar on Sunday, appeared on the Today show earlier this morning to discuss the star-studded ceremony.

During the chat, talk turned to the 64-year-old offering support to the NBC host and her family following Hope’s worrying health scare.

‘I was opening packages in my apartment last night, all the Amazon stuff that you get, and Jamie Lee, I opened a package and inside I saw two teddy bears and a beautiful My hand In Yours that you had given to my girls,’ Hoda began, referencing the Everything Everywhere All At Once star’s charity, which raises money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

A note from the Hollywood icon read: ‘I know it was scary. This is for your girls.’

The mom-of-two continued: ‘I thought to myself, “In the middle of her shining moment in her life, she is sending something to me and my kids”.

‘And I can’t tell you how touching and how beautiful I thought that was. And I just wanted to say thank you.’

Jamie Lee, who was left emotional during the interview, insisted that she didn’t think twice before reaching out with the poignant package.

‘You’re welcome! Listen, I get it. It’s the hardest thing in the world. There’s nothing scarier in the world than a sick kid,’ she replied. ‘That is why I made My Hand In Yours and that’s why I support Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, as you support your children’s hospital.

‘This is what we do, this is what they do 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. They show up for your family.

‘So, I was simply showing up for yours in the way I could.’

She is simply a queen.

Hoda previously star sparked concern from viewers when she took time off from the Today show last month, with Craig Melvin later announcing that she was dealing with a ‘family health matter’.

Upon her return, she revealed the reason behind her time off was due to her youngest child, Hope – who she shares with ex-partner Joel Schiffman – being admitted into the intensive care unit over a mystery illness.

‘My youngest, Hope, was in the ICU for a few days, and in the hospital for a little more than a week,’ she told viewers.

‘I’m so grateful she’s home, she is back home. I was waiting for that day to come, and we are watching her closely. I’m just so happy.

‘You know what I realized too, Savannah? When your child is ill, the amount of gratitude you can have for people who helped you out.

‘I’m grateful for the doctors at Weill Cornell who were amazing, and the nurses. And I’m grateful for my family and I’m grateful to friends like you who were there every single day.

‘I want to say thank you for that. I love you.’
