Hager shared a message from NBC's official PR Twitter account marking the three-year occasion, writing in a quote-tweet: "Love you @hodakotb! Three years with the best."

During the Friday morning episode, Kotb and Hager took part in a segment where they were tasked with answering questions about moments from their show over the past three years.

When asked how their three-year anniversary felt, Kotb explained that "it doesn't feel like three years," as Bush added, "Great," though she playfully teased, "What is the three-year anniversary gift?"

In another moment from the show, Kotb and Hager were under the impression that they would be chatting with a loyal fan to celebrate their anniversary when they were instead surprised by Trisha Yearwood, who appeared virtually before them.

"Trisha? Wait, what?" Kotb screamed with glee as Hager exclaimed, "Oh my gosh, we're both shocked."
