Savannah Guthrie gave emotional farewell to the TODAY show on Monday as she left for maternity leave -- but not before a sippy-cup toast.

"My heart is full, I'll miss you guys," the 42-year-old mom-to-be said as her co-anchors toasted her with apple juice.

She added of her pregnancy, "It's been so fun, it's such a surreal thing to go through it on TV like this... it has gone fast and I've been so lucky, I haven't felt bad or anything, mostly.

The morning show co-anchor has been tracking her nine-month journey on TODAY, but neither her nor her Mike Feldman know if they're having a boy or girl.

Guthrie is just grateful to be having her own bundle of joy. "God has blessed me beyond measure," she wrote on her TODAY blog. "At 42 years old, I had every reason to think I may have missed my chance. I don’t know why things worked out as they did. But there is only one possible response: to be full of gratitude and praise, and to point to the source of this incredible blessing."

 She concluded her post: "I send a big hug to all of you …. and I promise to share any baby news on TODAY in the coming days!"
