Hoda Kotb catches pregnant model who fainted on air

A pregnant model collapsed on “Today” and was caught by host Hoda Kotb.

 The model was walking out in a flowy dress in a segment for stylist Lilliana Vazquez on Friday when she fainted.

A source told the New York Post, “You could see her eyes losing focus. Hoda said, ‘Are you OK?’ Then the model’s knees buckled and she fell, but Hoda caught her.”

The show cut to commercial break, and execs rushed a medical team to the studio.

The source added, “The model, who is six months pregnant and is called Jessica, said this has happened before, and she was fine. She declined an ambulance and recovered quickly.”

A “Today” rep said,“We are so glad Jessica is feeling better, and we wish her a very happy Mother’s Day.”
