Kathie Lee gets an early birthday prank from Willard

Kathie Lee and her husband Frank are birthday twins: Tomorrow he'll be 82, and she'll be... eh, as she says, "Well, you can Google it."

Hoda (who just turned a year older herself) bid her a happy "pre-birthday," and showed a special Smuckers birthday card from Willard Scott wishing her a happy 100th. Thankfully, she took it like a champ.

"Thank God for Willard or I'd be the oldest person at the TODAY show," she said, telling him to stay healthy to make sure that stays true.

Julieanne Smolinski is a contributor who also hopes Willard stays healthy.


Happy birthday, Hoda!
