Savannah Guthrie reminisced about her the moment when she gave birth to her daughter, Vale, at 42. The "Today" co-host shared an old photo of herself paired with a heartfelt message.
"I will never, ever, ever get over this blessing. There is always hope."

The broadcast journalist, who is also a lawyer, expressed her gratitude on social media, saying she is lucky to have become a mother at 48. Guthrie always wanted to be a mother, but she prioritized her career when she was younger.
Motherhood unfolded for her at the right time.

Guthrie's fans quickly sent their birthday messages to her daughter. One fan wrote: "Breathtaking beautiful pictures, happy birthday to Vale."
Another fan congratulated Guthrie for her incredible milestone and described her daughter as "beautiful." A third fan also greeted Vale's special day.
It was a double celebration on the set of "Today." Aside from Vale, Jenna Bush Hager's daughter, Poppy, turned five on the same day.
Earlier, Vale and her three-year-old brother, Charlie, shared in their mother's spotlight as the latter was working from home. The adorable act happened in April, where Guthrie was in discussion with fellow co-hosts Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, and Craig Melvin.
Charley initially popped into the screen by sitting on the anchor's lap. Vale joined in the video as Guthrie continued her work.
The cute moment made Kotb's day, who even suggested to Guthrie that it should be a "permanent morning boost."
Guthrie said that while Vale was born through a c-section, Charlie was through in-vitro fertilization. It was a conscious decision Guthrie and her husband Michael Feldman had made.
Guthrie said she wanted her first daughter to have a sibling. She wanted Vale to have a playmate or someone to do life with while growing up.
With all the beautiful events that happened in her life, Guthrie said that having children in her late 40s was not her choice. Motherhood unfolded for her at the right time, she mused.
Since the pandemic started, people's daily routines have been affected. For Guthrie, implementing a change - dying her hair - earned her criticisms.
She responded to a social media user on Twitter who shamed her while working on air, explaining that that she did her own styling because of the ongoing health crisis and home quarantines.
