Savannah Guthrie has very important news to report:
She's a first-time mother!
The Today co-anchor gave birth to a baby named Vale on Wednesday, sharing the first precious photo with Twitter followers this morning of her and the child, who weighed in at a hefty 8.5 pounds.
Named Vale Guthrie Feldman, Guthrie’s daughter has "blue eyes, a little bit of blondish hair and the chubbiest cheeks you’ve ever seen,” Guthrie says. “Mike and I are so overcome with happiness, gratitude and joy.”
The journalist will be calling in to Today tomorrow to discuss the big news in more detail.
Guthrie started her leave from the show Monday, where she was sent off in style with presents from her colleagues.
"I'm 42 years old, and I honestly didn't know if I'd ever get this chance,” Guthrie wrote on her Today baby blog earlier this year. “I’ve never been more thankful, or felt more blessed from above. I know how lucky I am.”
On March 14, Guthrie married Michael Feldman in her hometown of Tucson, Arizona.
Accustomed to getting up long before the sun, Guthrie joked as a caption to the above picture: "My 3am wake up call sounds a lot different now. Sweeter.."
We send this new family our very best wishes!
