Baby goats hobnob with Kathie Lee and Hoda on ‘Today’ show

As we reported yesterday, the Stamford Museum & Nature Center‘s baby goats, Kathie Lee and Hoda, surprised their celebrity namesakes on an episode of the ‘Today’ show that aired this morning.

After expressing disbelief over her recent induction into the Maxim Hot 100 list, Hoda Kotb turned her attention to the news of the newborns.

“We have reached a new level, this doesn’t happen all the time — two baby girl goats were born to the Stamford Museum & Nature Center in Connecticut,” she said with the inflection of a proud mother. “They were asking people, ‘What should we name the two girl goats?’ And guess what, they decided to name them after us.”

Victoria Marr, co-manager of Heckscher Farm at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center, then cut in with the babies, surprising Kotb, who shrieked, “The goats are here!”

“All my life I’ve wanted my own goat!,” Gifford quipped. “This is better than the Maxim list!”

To meet Kathie Lee and Hoda (the goats), come to SM&NC’s Spring on the Farm Festival weekend on Saturday and Sunday, May 18 and 19.
