Savannah Guthrie and her beautiful baby girl, Vale, enjoyed a visit Thursday from Guthrie’s Today show colleagues Matt Lauer and Natalie Morales.

The ecstatic new mom and husband Mike Feldman welcomed baby Vale on Wednesday, just days after she started her maternity leave from the NBC morning show.

On Friday, Guthrie called into the show to share with viewers how her days as a new mama are going, and even though the host is used to getting up very early for the morning show, she said she was finding sleep hard to come by.

“They actually had to give me a little sleeping medicine so I would calm down,” confessed Guthrie, saying she only slept about an hour in two days. “Actually, last night I got a good night’s sleep for the first time. Vale slept like the true cherubic baby that she is—the little angel baby.”

When asked how her husband is faring as a new dad, Guthrie said with a laugh: “You know how fussy he gets! I’ve gotta put him down for his nap or he’s so cranky.”

Guthrie, who didn’t find out the gender before the birth, said she really thought she was having a boy, so the couple didn’t have many girl names picked out.

“I really was shocked when they said, ‘It’s a girl!'” In fact, she said, “We had a few names on the girl list, but we had not really settled on one at all.”

They decided on Vale, an English name, which means, “lives in the valley” and is generally a boy’s name.

“It’s unique but not kooky,” she said of the moniker.

Guthrie, 42, said her life is “so different” now that she is a mother.

“I feel like life just started. Honestly, I just can’t get over the joy that she brings,” she said. “It’s kind of inexpressible.” Immediately following the birth, Guthrie said she “cried and cried” and “didn’t even recognize” the sounds she was making. “It was just like this joy explosion.”

“We just cry spontaneously because we love her so much and we’re so happy. So I’m a big ball of mush,” said the emotional mom.

Vale has even received a few marriage proposals on Twitter. Guthrie joked in response, “Any applicant, we’ve gotta get him through the full Matt Lauer screening process.”

    cute kid! I had kids in my thirties, and the last one was the one I cried for joy over because I had not expected to be so blessed again at 38. I laughed with joy over the first. but am so pleased and happy with all my kids and the way they turned out. give them the attention they need every year of their lives. never let a week pass even when they are all grown up without checking in on them.
