Savannah Clark Guthrie is an American broadcast journalist and lawyer who was born in Australia. Since July 2012, she has been a key co-anchor of the NBC News morning show Today.
Guthrie became a legal analyst and correspondent for NBC News in September 2007. He regularly reports on trials all over the country. After being a White House correspondent from 2008 to 2011 and co-anchor of MSNBC’s The Daily Rundown in 2010 and 2011, Guthrie was named co-host of Today’s third hour with Natalie Morales and Al Roker. In that position, she filled in as a news anchor, main co-host, and chief legal analyst on all NBC platforms.
When you look at her private life, she is happily married to Michael Feldman. Together, they make for an adorable pair. In this article, we’ll talk in-depth about how they got together.
When Did Guthrie And Feldman Meet?
Guthrie and Feldman met at his 40th birthday party in October 2008, after Guthrie had split up with her first husband, Mark Orchard, and went with a mutual friend. Guthrie and Orchard got a divorce in 2009. Later that same year, she began dating Feldman.
“At a party, I met a political consultant named Mike Feldman, who made me laugh,” Guthrie wrote in Guideposts magazine. “We got together.”
Know About Guthrie And Feldman’s Engagement
The story of how they got engaged is interesting: in 2019, Guthrie told Today that she and Feldman had actually broken up the day he proposed. They were on vacation in Turks and Caicos, and Guthrie felt like their relationship needed to move forward. “It got to the point where no one, including us and especially me, thought we would ever get married,” she said. “We were kind of at a point in our lives where we had to decide whether to get married or just love each other and let go.”
During their trip, she told him one morning that they would have to break up if he couldn’t decide about marriage. “I said, ‘Sweetie, I love you so much, but if we can’t decide, I think we’ve decided,'” Guthrie recalled.
Feldman got her to spend the day with him, but she spent most of the time worrying about their relationship. Guthrie didn’t know that Feldman had already bought a ring and planned to ask her to marry him that day. She said, “That night, as the sun was setting, he said, ‘Let’s open that champagne they sent us.'” He asked her to marry him, and she said yes after “about 0.2 seconds” of thinking about it.
“Our families have pretty much-been in-laws for years,” Guthrie joked on Today after she told the audience that she was getting married. “They were just waiting for us to get up to speed.”
In March 2014, Guthrie and Feldman got married in a small ceremony with about 80 to 90 guests. After saying “I do,” the couple shared some exciting news: Guthrie was expecting their first child.

Guthrie has talked about becoming a parent later in life, saying that she “always wanted to be a mom” and that she and Feldman were worried they might have waited too long. When Vale was born, Guthrie was 43 and Feldman was 46.
Guthrie told PEOPLE, “We thought maybe it was too late and we’d missed our chance.” “When we found out we were pregnant, I don’t think there were two happier people on earth.”
