Good thing Savannah Guthrie went on maternity leave! Mere days after she bid adieu to her Today family, the NBC journalist went into labor. Talk about breaking news!
The 42-year-old and her husband, Michael Feldman, shared the happy announcement with a couple of photos including a close-up of their little girl. What’s this sweetheart’s name? Say hello to Vale Guthrie Feldman!
Little Vale joined the cast early Wednesday, August 13, People says. She weighs 8 lbs., 5 oz. and is 19.5 inches long. Savannah tells the magazine her baby girl “has blue eyes, a little bit of blondish hair, and the chubbiest cheeks you’ve ever seen.” Sounds like true love to us! “Mike and I are so overcome with happiness, gratitude, and joy,” the new mom adds.
Savannah spread the love via Twitter on August 14, writing, “Every new parent must want to shout their happy news to the world. So lucky we got to do it on @TODAYshow! We are bursting with joy. #Vale.” Later she added a snapshot of a drowsy baby Vale alongside the tweet, “Vale, on the other hand, slept through the whole thing.”
Better get your sleep while you can, Vale. Something tells us you’ll be making your national TV debut sooner rather than later.
