Savannah Clark Guthrie was born on December 27, 1971 in Melbourne, Australia, where her father was stationed for work. When her family returned to the United States, they moved to Tucson, Arizona, two years later. Guthrie was named after her great-grandmother and she graduated from Amphitheater High School in Tucson.
Guthrie received her degree in journalism from the University of Arizona, and graduated Cum laude, in 1993. She was also a member of the Arizona Alpha chapter, Pi Beta Phi. She later received her law degree at Georgetown University.
Guthrie originally substituted for both Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry on Today, and in 2011, it was confirmed that she would be the newest co-host on the Today show. The move came after Vieira left the show to pursue other projects. Guthrie replaced Curry as well and became Matt Lauer’s co-host in 2012.
In case you were looking up “Savannah Guthrie net worth” her current net worth is $2.0 million. She also made a cameo in Sharknado 3, playing herself—but we highly doubt that added to her wealth.
She was Married Before
If you’ve been looking up “Savannah Guthrie husband,” then you might end up with two answers. When Guthrie was covering the Michael Jackson trial, she met British BBC News presenter, Mark Orchard. When Orchard divorced his wife, Anne Kornblut (also a journalist), he and Guthrie married in December 2005, but later divorced in 2009.
Later that year, Guthrie started a relationship with Democratic communications and political consultant, Michael Feldman. They were engaged in May 2013 while on vacation and got married in March 2014, in Tucson. Guthrie announced days later that she was four months pregnant with their first child, daughter Vale Guthrie Feldman in 2014. Guthrie and her family live in the SoHo neighborhood in Lower Manhattan.
She Thought She Would Never Conceive
Guthrie found out she was pregnant with her first child, Vale, when she was 42, but waited so long, because everything wasn’t in place.
“I didn’t have my act together,” she said in a Hollywood Reporter interview. “I was doing the best I could in my personal life, and my professional life was going better. So, you know, you just keep doing the thing that works.”
The wait was certainly worth it, and Guthrie couldn’t be happier about becoming a mother.
“I think that’s why I feel such an acute level of gratitude about getting to have a baby,” she added. “Because I know how late it is in the game, you know? I’m a person of faith. It feels like the greatest embrace from God that I can imagine, to get to have a baby. And to get to have a second is just beyond.”
Baby No. 2 Has Just Arrived!
Earlier today (Friday December 9), Guthrie, 44, gave birth to her second child, son Charles Max Feldman! He weighed in at 9 lbs., 8 oz. and measured 21.5 inches long. Both baby and mommy are doing great!
Since her little bundle of joy arrived, Guthrie has tweeted, “We are so grateful. Blessings overflow. Along with tears of joy.”
