Savannah Guthrie: ‘I Feel Like Life Just Started’

So I think I really was shocked when they said, ‘it’s a girl.’ We looked at each other, and we had a few names on the girl list, but we had not really settled on it at all,” Guthrie said. “So all afternoon we were just trying to think of names. Vale had always been on our list of the names we liked, so we just kind of went for it.” Watch:
