Museum’s baby goats to appear on ‘Today’ show


The Stamford Museum and Nature Center’s baby goats were born less than a month ago, and already, they’re celebrities.

Two days after being introduced to the world, the kids, Kathie Lee and Hoda, will appear with their celebrity namesakes on the “Today” show Friday, May 10 at 7 a.m.

Kathie Lee (pictured right) was born May 1 to mom Delilah, and Hoda (left) was born May 3, along with a twin brother, to mom Butterscotch.

“Everybody in the studio passed them around,” said Robin Wexler, director of media relations and marketing at SM&NC. “It’s like any newborn — everybody wants to hold them and love them.”

Wexler, who was on the set of “Today” during the show’s taping Thursday, said the producers decided to surprise Gifford and Kotb by bringing out the goats unannounced.

“They were shocked,” she said.

For the goats, the feeling was probably mutual.
