Savannah Guthrie Baby Due Date, Gender, Name Update: ‘Today’ Host Gives Birth to Girl

Savannah Guthrie’s baby gender has been revealed–it’s a girl.

Vale Guthrie Feldman was born Wednesday morning, weighing in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces. The “Today” anchor gave birth at a New York hospital with husband Mike Feldman by her side.

The big news was delivered by Guthrie’s co-anchor Matt Lauer on Thursday’s edition of the NBC morning show.

Guthrie, 42, and Feldman, a communications strategist, were married in March. The new bride used her wedding as the occasion to announce that she was expecting her first child.

Guthrie worked until Monday, August 11.

“Sign that it’s time to go: when none of your shoes fit because your cankles are so large,” Savannah joked on Friday.

“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,” she added on Monday.

She and Feldman had decided not to find out the baby’s gender until the birth.

They had also kept potential baby names under wraps.

Her mother Nancy had been hoping for a granddaughter.

“In my heart of hearts, I would hope for Savannah to have a girl,” her mom told People earlier this year. “I probably shouldn’t say that because my son is just everything to me, but there’s nothing better than a daughter.”
