Savannah Guthrie, 44, is going to be a mom for the second time!
The Today anchor announced that she and her husband Mike Feldman are expecting another baby late in the year.
"Mike and I are so excited. We're expecting a baby in December!" Savannah said on air today, revealing the news to surprised coworkers saying, "well yeah, I am pregnant.”
Hoda Kotb said she suspected something was up when she had dinner with Savannah recently and she was noticeably not drinking.
”We all had wine, and I noticed your glass wasn't going down," she said. "I thought maybe you just weren't in the mood."
The new baby will be younger brother or sister to Savannah’s 21-month-old daughter, Vale.
Savannah also wrote a blog about becoming a mom for the second time, saying it’s been hard to contain her excitement about the new baby.
“When Vale was born, our happiness was complete. The thought of getting to add to our family now is beyond every hope, dream and prayer I have ever had. It is not simply double the joy—it is joy multiplied infinitely,” she wrote. “It hasn't even been quite two years since Vale was born, but like a lot of mothers, I find myself worrying and wondering whether I will still know what to do. I hope I remember how to swaddle! I hope I still have the talent to coax out that little baby burp. I hope I still have the energy and stamina to be up at all hours of the night (and day) for weeks on end. But there's one thing I haven't forgotten: what it feels like the first time to set eyes on a newborn baby. I remember how those first tears I cried felt like a release from somewhere deep, deep in my soul that I never knew existed. I remember the surge of adrenaline and sleep-deprived giddiness. I remember how she smelled, her silky hair, her sweet little whimpers and how her teensy tiny frame felt so gloriously heavy across my chest. I remember the feeling of profound gratitude and blessedness. Now, thanks to God, we are getting that beautiful opportunity again. We will pray every moment for a healthy, happy baby and feel so thankful to have this chance to add to our family.”
The happy morning anchor also explained she wouldn’t be covering the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, because of the potential health hazard.
“The doctors say that we shouldn't because of the Zika virus so I'll miss it," Savannah said. "You're going to have to go to female beach volleyball without me, Matt. Try to carry on.”
