Today co-host Sheinelle Jones embraces her gray hairs and readers as she prepares to go on camera.

The TV presenter shared a selfie of herself getting ready in the new studio ahead of her on-screen appearance. But instead of spending ages getting herself camera ready, the star decides to be natural and debuts her readers and gray hairs - much to the delight of fans.

She captioned the snap, "Prepping for later, my “nighttime” readers have become my “morning” readers! Hahaha - I used to only need them at night. Might as well embrace it. (A few grays too)"

The star revealed she is still hoping to learn the art of organizing and decluttering the home (opens in new tab).

"I wish I were a whiz at mastering my kids’ schedules…. along with my own: nightly meal planning, grocery shopping, laundry, all of that stuff. But I stink," she told Parents.

"If a fairy godmother could grant me one duty that I’d never have to do again, it’d be folding clothes. And doing dishes."

But she acknowledged that she's happy (opens in new tab) and that's what matters. "My kids are happy, and so am I," she continued, adding, that their favorite family activity is "cranking up the music and just having a ball."

"I’m pretty fun and spontaneous and I genuinely have a good time with my kids."
