The Today Show gets its second new addition in two weeks - baby London, born to Siri Pinter and Carson Daly.
Congrats to Carson Daly, who’s just welcomed his third baby with fiancée Siri Pinter late on Wednesday. The NBC host announced the happy news on the Today show, as you do. Well, he leaked the announcement to Today, anyway, emailing to say that the baby had left “the orange womb.” Get it? Like Daly’s orange room at Today? Yeah, puns are cool. Little London weighed in at 8 lbs. 11 oz., measured 22 inches long and "has the cheeks, too," according to Carson.
Congratulations to the proud parents of three!
The not-so-new dad focused the announcement on his wife, of course, since she was the one doing all the work: “Siri is a warrior and I’m so amazed by her poise, grace and strength during this miraculous process.”

Today anchor Savannah Guthrie has gotten engaged to her boyfriend, Mike Feldman, after four years together as a couple. The presenter flashed her ring to her Today co-host Matt Lauer for a photo that was soon uploaded on to his Twitter account, complete with the caption 'Big news from Savannah!'
Mike, who was a former aide to Al Gore before joining a communications firm that operates in Washington, D.C. and New York, popped the question to Savannah over the weekend, the presenter later revealed on air. The picture was uploaded shortly before Today went to air, and as the views came flooding in for the picture she and Lauer discussed her weekend briefly, with Guthrie saying, “We’ve been together four years so, as he said, no one can accuse us of rushing into anything,” adding, “Our families have been in-laws for years…they were just waiting for us to catch up!"
During the show, the celebrations went on with guest Bradley Cooper, who was promoting The Hangover III, coming on set with a bouquet of roses for the soon-to-be-wed anchor. The cheeky Oscar-nominee then asked the presenter, with his tongue firmly in cheek of course, whether he could have Guthrie's number.
Willie Geist has been named as the new co-host of the 9am hour of NBC’s morning show 'Today'. Jim Bell, the show’s executive producer made the announcement, revealing that Geist will start in his new role as of November 12, 2012.
