Meet the newest member of the TODAY family!
Seven-week-old Vale Guthrie Feldman made her TODAY Show debut when she and her proud parents Savannah Guthrie and Mike Feldman paid a surprise visit to Studio 1A this morning.
In a special segment of the program's fun game, ‘Guess the Guest,’ Carson Daly provided the rest of the anchors with three clues on who might be making an unexpected, on-air visit during the show.
Carson offered hints such as, "This guest is a person of few words" and “This guest has met many of the TODAY anchors but has never been live on the show," before a smiling Savannah walked on-set holding her daughter.

The delighted TODAY anchors immediately rushed over to see their surprise guests. Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb and Lester Holt even ran over from off-set to greet Savannah, Mike and Vale!
“You look amazing,” Tamron Hall complimented Savannah. “Let me tell you, I’m wearing black,” she quipped of her secret to looking so great post-pregnancy.
Matt Lauer was the first of the bunch to hold baby Vale. “I think she may be pooping,” he said before passing her on to Natalie Morales.
After the surprise, Savannah and her communications consultant husband were interviewed by Matt on details of life with their newborn daughter.
“It’s exhilarating and thrilling and terrifying sometimes, but terrifying because I love her so much,” the first-time mom said. “I couldn’t love anything more. And I hold her life in my hands, and that is so scary sometimes.”
"She is such a sweet baby," she added. "She amazes me every day."
In the interview Savannah also revealed she will be returning to TODAY on Nov. 3.
"What do you think? Am I welcome?” she asked, to which Matt happily replied, "Absolutely! Coming back sooner too would be fine!"
Vale, the first child for both Savannah and Mike, was born on August 13. Her parents wed in Tucson, Arizona on March 15, 2014 and Savannah announced she was four months pregnant just two days later.
