Savannah Guthrie became a first-time mom in her 40s, and the timing couldn’t have worked out better for the Today show co-anchor.

“I always wanted to be a mom, and it took us so long to get married — we dated for so long — that we thought maybe it was too late and we’d lost our chance,” Guthrie, who began dating husband Michael Feldman in 2009 and later wed in 2014, tells PEOPLE for this year’s Beautiful Issue.

“When we found out we were pregnant, I don’t think there were two happier people on this planet,” says Guthrie, 47.

The mother of two, who welcomed daughter Vale, 4, in August 2014 and son Charley, 2, in December 2016, adds that there are perks to becoming a mom a little later in life.

“I definitely have a good head on my shoulders, I am able to prioritize, and I think there’s a luxury to feel calm enough and not to feel the same pressures as in your 20s and 30s, when you are really trying to make your career happen,” she explains.

“Now, I can really take my time and enjoy our kids,” says Guthrie, who adds, “We feel so lucky to have each other.”
