'Today' Show Co-Anchor Savannah Guthrie Gives Birth to Baby Boy -- See the Pic
By Jackie Willis
Meet the newest member of the Today show family!
Matt Lauer, Hoda Kotb, Willie Geist, Dylan Dreyer, Al Roker and Tamron Hall excitedly congratulated fellow co-anchor Savannah Guthrie and her husband, Michael Feldman, on the birth of their son, Charley Max, who arrived on Thursday morning. The morning show co-anchors said that the happy mom jokingly referred to her new son as a "bruiser," because he weighed in at 9 lbs., 8 oz. and measured 21.5 inches. The couple -- who are already parents to 2-year-old daughter Vale -- named their son after Guthrie's dad, Charley, and Feldman's grandfather, Max.
"I teared up when I saw my friends this morning @MLauer @alroker @hodakotb @tamronhall @DylanDreyerNBC @WillieGeist -- thank you," Guthrie tweeted upon seeing the segment on Today, which included several photos of her baby.
In September, the 44-year-old co-anchor shared that her husband was looking forward to having a baby boy. "He's so excited, he talks to the baby, like, 'Let me talk to my son. Attention, son,'" she gushed. "We feel beyond blessed to get to have a baby, and to get to have a boy and a girl."
Last June, Dreyer also announced that she's pregnant, just three days after Guthrie's big news. "By the way, protocol now falls into place that it's OK for you to have your baby," Lauer joked with the meteorologist after announcing the birth of Guthrie's son on Friday morning.
