Savannah Guthrie is officially a mom!
The Today co-anchor gave birth to her and hubby Mike Feldman's first child on Wednesday. She announced daughter Vale Feldman's birth via Twitter Thursday, writing, "My 3am wake up call sounds a lot different now. Sweeter..." Feldman retweeted his wife and added, "but this sound is like music to my ears."
Vale weighed 8.5 lbs. and measured 19.5 inches. Today showed the first pictures of the couple's newborn Thursday. "The baby is more cheek than head," the new mom joked.
Savannah is overjoyed to welcome her little bundle of joy, but as she wrote on her Today baby blog earlier this year, "I'm 42 years old, and I honestly didn't know if I'd ever get this chance."
"I've never been more thankful, or felt more blessed from above. I know how lucky I am," she added. "For a long time, I think I was afraid to even let myself think about how much I hoped to one day have a baby."
But a baby was in the cards—and a wedding, too! On March 14, Savannah and her then-fiancé said "I do" in the bride's hometown of Tucson, Ariz. "It was beautiful. Just everything I could have dreamed," Savannah later gushed on Today. "We just wanted to have this private moment. It was a small wedding. We just wanted that moment with our close friends and family to basically drop a big bomb on them."
That bomb was the exciting news that Savannah was already four months along in her pregnancy! Today co-host Matt Lauer, who was on hand for all the fun, said that announcement was his "favorite moment" from the wedding weekend. As he recalled, the newlyweds were about to make a toast when "This is an NBC News special report" was heard over the loudspeaker.
That got everyone's attention, and Savannah told guests she felt "like the least that we could do is break some news," gushing, "I, or we, are four months pregnant!"
The couple's family members and close friends rose to their feet to clap and cheer at the baby news, and their extended Today family has been celebrating ever since! Now, baby Feldman has lots of aunts and uncles to meet—and maybe evening a morning TV debut, too!
Congratulations to Savannah and Mike on their wonderful new addition.
