Thank you for all the birthday wishes!! I’m feeling very very very grateful this year and reflecting on my blessings. My kids and my husband are my beating heart. My mom and sis and brother are my life. My dear departed Dad is always with me. My friends old and new and near and far have made me the happiest and luckiest and smiliest and most beloved year after year. I’m grateful to work at a place that is full of joy and where I still learn every single day from the devoted and awe inspiring professionals I share time and space with. I posted this picture because it hung in our kitchen for my whole childhood. I was so embarrassed of it and myself! Because I was chubby and my hair was crazy and of course the whole “not wearing a shirt because I was two” thing got more and more embarrassing the older I got. At one point I took it down and hid it from my mom!! But now I embrace it and embrace my life and know the source of all good above all things, and the source of comfort during many tears and disappointment, has been God - who was with me from this very day, 48 years ago!!
The "Today" co-host birthday is coming after she underwent a full retinal surgery on her right eye, following a house accident she had in late November.
Savannah's 3-year-old son, Charley, accidentally hit his mother's eye with his toy train while playing. And what happened in split seconds has led to weeks of recovery with the co-host staying away from her hosting duties while she recuperates.
Guthrie and her beau, Michael Feldman met in 2008, at the latter's birthday party, they started dating in 2009
Unlike most women who like to give birth to their children at an early age, Savannah Guthrie is happy she gave birth to her kids at a later age in life.
The mom-of-two, 48, became a first-time mom at 42-years old with the birth of daughter Vale, and she and husband Micahel Feldman welcomed their second child, Charley, two years later.
In an interview with People, Savannah spoke on having kids at a later age:
"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."
The co-host revealed that she never planned to have kids at that age, but since she got married at a later age, it wasn't much of a choice.
Savannah called her first daughter a miracle while referring to the second child a medical miracle, considering that he was conceived through in-vitro fertilization.
The "Today" show co-host and the communications consultant have lived happily since then. The former is set to resume her hosting duties after the holidays.
