Today Show anchor Savannah Guthrie gave birth to a little girl named Vale on Wednesday, August 13.


Savannah Guthrie's daughter arrived early Wednesday morning, August 13.

Savannah's Today family updated the audience on Vale Guthrie Feldman's birth. Vale weighed in at 8 lbs, 5 oz., and measured 19.5 inches long.

The proud mom says the little one has "has blue eyes, a little bit of blondish hair and the chubbiest cheeks you've ever seen." In a pictured shared by proud parents Savannah and Mike Feldman, the little girl's seen with a deep yawn, closed eyes, and perky little nose.


Matt Lauer was texting his co-anchor when she suddenly went silent. Concerned, he sent a questioning text and received a picture of an inked baby foot. Beaming, full of joy, Lauer said, "I just sat there smiling."

The Today Show audience and viewers joined in the celebration, starting #CongratsSavannah on Twitter.

Guthrie announced the pregnancy right after dropping the surprising news she and Feldman had finally married in her hometown of Tucson, Arizona.

"It's funny, 'cause we set the wedding date, I bought my dress, and then I found out." It seems as if the pregnancy had been a surprise for the couple, who were in the middle of planning their nuptials. "So I've been doing a little praying that I would fit in [the gown], and it all worked out."


She told viewers days after telling her coworkers. However, not all the Today Show family was surprised. While covering the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, Natalie Morales guessed after "noticing she [Guthrie] wasn’t drinking alcohol during dinner."

And Lauer was suspicious, too. Instead of keeping quiet, like Morales, the Today veteran "confronted Savannah about it in a text message." In a moment of camaraderie, he took pictures of various drinks during drinking games, so no one noticed any suspicious activity.

Guthrie documented the pregnancy in her blog, Savannah's Maternity Musings. As a first-time expectant mom, the 42-year-old said she felt blessed.


"I know how lucky I am. For a long time, I think I was afraid to even let myself think about how much I hoped to one day have a baby."

Society sometimes puts a deep pressure on women to have children at a young age. And society often discounts mother over the age of 40, focusing on the possible health complications for mother and children.

She felt the pregnancy as an adventurous journey, and with it came deep emotions. "Joy and profound gratitude for many blessings and for the kindness and support of all of you wonderful and loyal friends on TODAY.com."


Ever open with her audience, the mom-to-be documented anxious nightmares and food cravings like peanut butter. And talked about the relief at not being the within 25-30 pound rule and discovering it's okay to be focused on individual body needs; it doesn’t matter what society thinks as long as it’s medically sound.

She also expressed surprise as the vicious commentary on her maternity fashion choices. And acknowledged the luck at not needing fertility intervention while sympathizing with those women facing hard decisions (like beauty expert Bobbie Thomas).


Guthrie didn't forget Feldman's contribution, either. "As long as our baby watches this father, I know everything will be okay."

During a Today Show shower, she complimented his interaction with the pregnancy. The hormonal body changes often leave a woman in the middle of unwanted shifts and reactions, but Feldman took the incidents in stride.

Guthrie described him as "the most wonderful, kind, brilliant, hilarious, softhearted, forbearing, forgiving, wonderful person."

As for picking out the name Vale, Lauer said the decision all came down the baby's personality. "They named her that because she was so calm and serene." At least until 10 PM--when the newborn was fussy while he was on the phone with the new mom.


While the name follows the geographic and nature trends, it doesn't even rank on the Social Security Administration's trending name list (Popular Baby Names). SSA only requires at least 5 babies bearing the same name, so the little one will definitely stand out in a classroom. At least for a little while.

Nameberry, a baby name website, founder Pamela Redmond Satran told Today to expect the name to now appear as a trend since it also falls in the unique and special meaning categoies for modern parents. Satran points out the uniqueness will definitely be an asset.


 

Satran reminds parents to focus on the fact names have meaning and let other people in on the reasons for name choice.

"If there is a story like that behind it, I think you should tell the story. It’ll help other people to understand and remember the name.”

And it'll give a fun story when the child is old enough to want to hear all about the name game, even if it's the 45th out of 300. Bonds are very important and naming a child is a deep connection.
