Guthrie is engaged to her boyfriend of four years, political consultant Mike Feldman, who reveals that the wedding will be held 'as soon as possible.'
Savannah Guthrie of "Today" show is engaged to Mike Feldman, her boyfriend of four years. The host revealed on the NBC morning show that she and Feldman were so "excited" about the engagement. "We've been together four years, so, as he said, no one will accuse us of rushing into anything," she said on Monday, May 13.
"He's the best person. And I know him so well too. We adore each other. Our families have been in-laws for years, they were just waiting for us to catch up!" she gushed. Guthrie added that her political consultant boyfriend proposed to her on the weekend when they were vacationing on the Caribbean islands.
Guthrie, however, did not realize that Feldman was proposing when he got down on his knees. "It didn't dawn on me he was actually asking. He got on one knee and I still thought we were just talking," she said. Feldman later gave her the box. "I didn't open it for a long time, because I was just overcome," she recalled.
In regards to his engagement to Guthrie, Feldman said that "it's not bad being the luckiest guy in the world." He added that the wedding would be held "as soon as possible."
Co-host Matt Lauer took to Twitter to write, "Big news from Savannah!" and posted a picture of her in a purple dress, showing her new ring. Al Roker shared a zoomed pic of his teary-eyed co-host and her sparkling diamond ring on Instagram. "@savannahguthrie and her engagement ring. Congrats to her and fiance Mike Feldman," he captioned the picture. MSNBC's Chuck Todd tweeted, "Hey @feldmike, it's clear @SavannahGuthrie is doing serious damage to the @todayshow table. So exciting."
Guthrie's day could not be any better. "The Hangover Part III" star Bradley Cooper dropped by the studio during the broadcast and brought her red roses after her engagement announcement. Wearing a gray suit and blue shirt, he jokingly asked for her phone number.
