TODAY star Savannah Guthrie has made a shocking revelation about her co-star, NBC correspondent Morgan Chesky on-air.
During Thursday's Today episode, Savannah sent her congratulations via live television to Morgan for becoming a first-time dad.
The official Today Twitter account shared a clip from the morning show of Savannah, 51, hosting from outside of the Today studios as the audience stood behind her.
Co-hosting next to her were fellow TV personalities: Hoda Kotb, 58, Dylan Dreyer, 41, Craig Melvin, 44, and Carson Daly, 49.
Before the team moved on to another part of their segment, Savannah took a moment to send a sweet message to Morgan, 36.
"Let's take a moment and congratulate a member of our Today family…correspondent Morgan Chesky just became a dad," she swooned.
Savannah divulged that Morgan and his wife, Olivia Jane Steele, welcomed their daughter Eleanor Mae into the world on Tuesday.
"She's a healthy seven pounds, thirteen ounces [and] just beautiful," she added.
While Savannah was speaking, producers showed images of Morgan embracing his wife as she held their daughter in her hospital bed on-air.
Carson and Craig congratulated Morgan after Savannah made her closing remark.
Award-winning journalist, Morgan, was known for being a part of the NBC News team.
Away from his desk, he can be found hiking or spending time with his family.
The news anchor for NBC since December 2018.
After being raised in Kerrville, Texas, he graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor's in Mass Communications.
He started his career as a CBS News intern back in 2008 and worked his way up the ladder.
Over the course of his career, Morgan was a reporter and anchor for KVHC 15, KLTV, and KVUE in Texas, where he worked on local and national stories
In 2013, he became a weekend anchor for KOCO News in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, where he reported on breaking news and investigations.
In 2016, Morgan moved to Seattle, Washington, where he worked as a weekend and weekday evening anchor for Komo TV for over two years.
During that time, he received a regional Emmy for his work reporting on a cold case involving a young girl who disappeared from the Seattle area in the early ’90s.
Morgan works for NBC and is now based in Texas.
On April 23, 2023, Morgan suffered a 'frightening' health scare during a hiking trip that was meant to celebrate his 37th birthday.
During an interview with Today on May 11, he recalled “feeling off” after he and his uncle, Eric, began hiking in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah.
It wasn't until they hit Zion National Park the next day that the NBC anchor started to feel lightheaded and weak.
Concerned by his symptoms, his uncle decided to help him off the trail and take him to an urgent care clinic.
It was there that Morgan was diagnosed with high-altitude pulmonary edema and told he could have passed out from lack of oxygen or gone into cardiac arrest if he continued hiking.
“I could have never imagined a trip to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks would end on oxygen in an ICU,” Morgan told Today.
According to the outlet, NBC News medical correspondent Dr. John Torres told Chesky, "If he were to hike again, he's at risk for another HAPE (high-altitude pulmonary edema) episode since he's already been affected once.
"The doctor recommended taking the time to acclimatize to higher altitudes and taking medicine such as acetazolamide for prevention and to speed acclimatization."
Morgan's wife, Olivia, appears to be just successful as him.
According to her Instagram, she is the CEO of Conversation Couture – a company described as the "House of Retail Education."
Before Olivia birthed the couple's baby, Morgan teased their family's new addition on social media.
"Come May 2023, I’m blessed to say I’ll be doing that alongside a woman whose passion for life and love knows no bounds," Morgan wrote on Instagram in March.
"Olivia and I are incredibly excited to welcome a little girl into the world and surround her with the same support and blessings our families were fortunate enough to bestow upon us."
