Today's Savannah Guthrie Welcomes Son - and Matt Lauer Has Already Paid Him a Visit
It's a boy for Savannah Guthrie and Michael Feldman, who just became second-time parents to a son named Charles Max Feldman
Breaking news: Savannah Guthrie is a mom again!
“We are so grateful. Blessings overflow. Along with tears of joy,” Guthrie tweeted on Friday along with a slew of photos showing the new parents, little “Charley” and even Matt Lauer holding the little one.
The proud mother has already updated her Twitter profile to read, “Grateful mom to Vale and Charley,” referring both to her new addition and the couple’s 2-year-old daughter.
The little one is named after both Guthrie’s late father, who died of a heart attack when she was 16, and Feldman’s grandfather, according to Today.
Lauer announced on Today that “Mama and Dad are doing great,” noting that he has already paid the “cute little boy” a visit in the hospital.
“I was called in to bring wine, so we may have had a little toast,” Lauer said.
“So beyond happy for my pregnancy buddy @SavannahGuthrie & her family!!” the Today show meteorologist wrote. “Radiant as ever welcoming their beautiful baby boy!! I want one!!!”

Guthrie announced her pregnancy on air in June, and at the same time shared that she would be opting out of traveling to cover the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro due to the widespread impact of the mosquito-borne Zika virus. And in September, the anchor spilled (also on Today) that her second child would be a boy.
“We’re beyond blessed to get to have a baby,” she said at the time of herself and Feldman, a public relations and communications consultant. “And to get to have a boy and a girl.”
Pregnancy didn’t stop her from fulfilling her homeground news duties. On Nov. 8, a then-eight-months-pregnant Guthrie stayed on air almost all day to cover the U.S. presidential election.
Though Charley’s birth story has yet to be told, one thing’s for sure: His mom went the least painful route possible.
“Oh, 100 percent,” she told Fit Pregnancy and Baby for their November cover story of whether she’d be going for the epidural in labor. “Is there anything about me that suggests I have the internal fortitude to withstand birth without a little bit of help? But my hat’s off to women who do.”

“We have a name in mind, but we’re not committing. We are big believers in looking at the baby to see if the name fits,” the later-in-life mama said, admitting she and Feldman had a different name in mind for Vale that they didn’t end up choosing.
“We had never planned on Vale, that’s just a name I had always liked. There in the hospital I said, ‘For the next hour, let’s pretend her name is Vale and we’ll try it on for size.’ And we loved it. It fit her. She was serene.”
