'We've already been talking about what everyone’s going to be for Halloween in our household,' Bush Hager, 41, admitted.
'What are we looking at?' Kotb, 59, asked.
Jenna Bush Hager, 41, revealed her family's Halloween costumes on the Today show Friday
The host shared that her four-year-old son, Hal, wants to be a New York City rat with pizza hanging out of his mouth
Bush Hager took a breath before sharing her son's unusual costume choice that had both the audience and her co-star laughing.
'Hal wants to be a New York City rat,' she explained. 'Not just a rat, but a New York City rat. That's a special kind of breed.'
'So bigger than normal?' Kotb asked.
'Large, maybe pizza in half of its mouth,' Bush Hager replied.
Meanwhile, her daughters Mila, ten, and Poppy, seven, have been inspired by two pop culture icons for their respective costumes.
'Poppy is going to be the character from Clueless, which she’s never seen,' Bush Hager shared. 'And Mila, the last I checked, was going to be one of Taylor Swift’s albums. I think Lover.'
Mila's costume idea may have come about after she attended one of Swift's Eras Tour shows with her younger sister and parents last spring.
'That's a cute idea to be an album cover. Brilliant,' gushed Kotb, who is mom to daughters Haley, six, and Hope, four.
Bush Hager and her husband, Henry Hager, are also parents to daughters Mila, ten, and Poppy, seven, who were inspired by pop culture icons for their costumes
Bush Hager said Poppy wants to go as 'the character from Clueless' - even though she has never seen the 1995 film - while Mila plans on dressing up as one of Taylor Swift's albums
Bush Hager then brought up the Today show's annual Halloween extravaganza, asking, 'What are we going to be? We don't know yet.'
'I don't know, but you know it's going to be good,' Kotb said. 'It's going to be really, really good.'
Last October, the Today stars transformed into famous Las Vegas performers for their Sin City-themed Halloween show.
Kotb and her co-anchor Savannah Guthrie dressed as Cirque du Soleil stars while Bush Hager took on the role of singing legend Celine Dion.
The Today with Hoda & Jenna hosts got their fair share of candy last week when they ranked their favorite chocolate bars ahead of National Choose Your Chocolate Day on September 16.
'Here’s the other question, how do you eat a Twix?' Kotb asked Bush Hager after they gave the chocolate bar the top spot.
'This is how I like to do it,' the former first daughter said as she grabbed the candy bar. 'I like to break 'em, pull the caramel, [and then bite it].'
But Kotb disagreed with her technique, saying, 'No, no. That’s not how you do it.'
Later in the show, Bush Hager was left horrified by the strange way her co-star Hoda Kotb eats a Twix bar
'That is so gross!' Bush Hager said after watching Kotb bite the caramel off the candy bar. She then shook her head in amusement, concluding, 'Wow, this show has really hit a new high'
'Please, don’t eat around the corners. Please, don't eat it like corn,' Bush Hager begged her, causing her to burst into laughter.
'No, that’s a Pop-Tart,' Kotb corrected her.
'Please, don't eat around it. Please, what are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?' Bush Hager continued.
Kotb couldn't stop laughing and struggled to compose herself before she demonstrated the way she eats a Twix.
'Okay, you bite the caramel off the top,' she said, raising the chocolate bar to her mouth while the audience groaned.
'That is so gross!' Bush Hager insisted.
Kotb explained that she eats the caramel first to 'get the cookie bar by itself.'
Bush Hager shook her head in amusement, concluding, 'Wow, this show has really hit a new high.'
