As of yesterday morning, Savannah Guthrie has a new, adorably sweet reason to wake up at 3 a.m. every day:

Her name is Vale and she's the newborn daughter born to Guthrie and husband Michael Feldman.

Guthrie, 42, gave birth on Thursday, invited her colleagues (such as Matt Lauer) to come visit the hospital immediately and called in to Today this morning to keep gushing over motherhood.

"I feel like life just started. I just can't get over the joy she brings - it's beyond words," Guthrie told Lauer and Natalie Morales. "The moment she was born I cried - I look at her so proud and I can't stop thanking God."

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.

Savannah Guthrie kicked of St. Patrick's Day in grand style this morning.

By chugging some green beer on air? No way, the Today Show co-anchor can't do that these days... because SHE'S PREGNANT!

Guthrie shocked viewers by making this announcement alongside colleagues Matt Lauer, Natalie Morales, Willie Geist and Al Roker, telling them she is "four months along" and, oh yeah, one more thing:

She got married over the weekend!

Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, and the rest of the anchors at NBC's Today celebrated "No Makeup Monday" by ... well, you can most likely figure it out.

As part of the "Love Your Selfie" series, the trio went makeup-free with Natalie Morales, Tamron Hall, Willie Geist, Hoda Kotb, Kathie Lee Gifford and Carson Daly.

"Did it get pale and pasty in here or is it just me" Lauer joked.

No Matt, it's not just you. But you are still a sexy beast, man.

With no foundation or bronzer available, some of the journalists admitted that appearing on high-definition TV was more challenging than everyday life.

"There's a difference in walking around your neighborhood without makeup and then being on national TV without makeup," Hall said this morning.

"TV is a little less forgiving," Savannah Guthrie confirmed.

Kotb copped to wanting a little something to feel more like herself. "I like to have lipstick on," she said. "If I have nothing on, but I have lipstick, I feel better."

Kudos to Today for doing this even if it was difficult and potentially causes Matt severe PTSD. Check out other celebrities without makeup below:

Perhaps to draw attention away from her show's tumbling ratings, or the fact that everyone hates co-anchor Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie has dyed her hair red.

The Today reporter joked about the change on air today (It's my natural color - not!") and received compliments from colleague Natalie Morales ("We love it!"), while Al Roker cracked that he once also went with some red locks.

What the heck is going on at The Today Show?

A couple days after Al Roker clearly took a shot at Matt Lauer for how he handled the firing of Ann Curry (despite NBC's denial), the beloved weatherman once again took it upon himself to make a few headlines during a segment.

This time, while Lauer and Savannah Guthrie slow-danced and then talked about the 35-year anniversary of Elvis Presley dying, Roker made a silly face and simply stared into the camera... and stared... and stared... and stared.

Perhaps producers think the program can top Good Morning America in the ratings game by challenging its viewers to a staring contest once per week. Watch the shenanigans unfold now:

Somewhere, Ann Curry might be smiling right about now.

Not only has The Today Show's replacement of this co-anchor with Savannah Guthrie NOT resulted in a ratings spike, but the program lost to rival Good Morning America by over 300,000 total viewers during Guthrie's debut week behind the desk.

Moreover, according to New York Post sources, Guthrie has developed severe headaches as a result of her promotion.

“She goes to a doctor two days a week for treatment of the migraines, and is required to wear dark glasses when she’s not on set,” said this Page Six insider. “The pressure of taking over after Ann’s execution is taking its toll.”

The journalist is not expected to miss any time as a result of these injuries, and will most definitely be traveling to London with Today for the upcoming Olympics. She remains a trooper, saying the mole.

“You would never been able to know anything was wrong by watching her at work."

Savannah Guthrie to the rescue? Not after one installment of The Today Show at least.

The new anchor's debut episode was met with a resounding response by her program's chief rival this week, as Good Morning America scored its first ratings win on a Monday since 2006.

Fast affiliate numbers show GMA garnering an advantage of 6,000 households over Today in the key demographic of 24-54-year olds (1.68 million over 1.674 million), along with a 356,000 lead in total viewers (4.425 million over 4.069 million).

It's very, very early, but the dismissal of Ann Curry certainly has not paid immediate dividends for NBC.

It looks like the 100 Meters at this month's Olympics won't be the only race that network is heavily invested in this summer.

It was confirmed on Friday, but made official this morning: Savannah Guthrie is the new co-anchor on The Today Show.

"It truly is a new day around here," veteran host Matt Lauer said to kick of today's installment. "I'm pleased to be sharing this new day with Savannah Guthrie, who after several years of playing a great role on this program, takes a step forward this morning and joins us as co-anchor of Today."

Guthrie responded by saying it was an "honor" to be sitting alongside Lauer.

The new co-host, of course, replaces Ann Curry, who was fired in the messiest manner possible by NBC.

Recent rumors suggest that Lauer played a prominent role in his former colleague's ousting, as The Today Show has been seeking a scapegoat for its dwindling ratings.

Watch him introduce Guthrie in the following video and react: Are you looking forward to her Today Show reign?
