On Friday, the TODAY team treated Kotb to an early birthday surprise when Bush Hager gifted Kotb a boogie board and brought out Kotb-family favorite country artist Walker Hayes, who sang 'Happy Birthday' with a birthday cake for Kotb.

"First of all, I adore you. And now my daughters, Haley and Hope, have started calling each other 'Walker Hayes,'" Kotb told Hayes, 42, during his appearance. "I tried to FaceTime you one time when you claimed you were at the pool because my girls were going, 'I'm Walker Hayes,' 'No I'm Walker Hayes.'"

"They used to fight over who was going to be Hoda or Jenna, but not anymore. Now they have both claimed you. I am so happy you are here. You just brighten anyone's day," Kotb said during the broadcast.

Earlier, Haley and Hope had joined their mom as she introduced Walker's performance and watched along as he performed their favorite song "Fancy Like."

Kotb said her own mother and sister were also in attendance for the early birthday festivities during Hayes' performance.

As for what she was planning on doing to celebrate, Kotb told Bush Hager, "I don't know, my kids just said 'Don't get out of bed in the morning' because they want to bring me breakfast, I think. And the other day they were like, 'Don't come in here.' I was like, 'What are you doing?' 'Wrapping something! Don't say anything cause we're not going to say what it is!' "

Their surprised turned out to include balloons and some mermaid decorations, according to a photo Kotb shared on Twitter of her hugging her girls. "Lucky me! Xo," Kotb wrote.
