She cited Zika concerns because of her pregnancy. The 44-year-old journalist and husband Mike Feldman are excited about having a second child.

On the expecting mother's last day on the popular NBC morning talk show, her co-workers shared champagne while Guthrie and Dylan Dreyer had apple juice. Matt Lauer gave the toast by expressing that the cast will miss Savannah, and they can't wait to see the new little boy. Guthrie enjoyed a special baby-themed version of "Steals and Deals" earlier in the show.

Dylan Dreyer

Dylan Dreyer is going on maternity leave next week to give birth to her first child. Like Savannah, Dylan will have a boy. Dylan wished Savannah good luck and thanked her for all the advice she has given her. The 35-year old admitted she had asked the second-time mother lots of questions. Dylan's husband, NBC's "Nightly News" cameraman Brian Fichera, joined her on the Saturday edition of the "Today" show. Her weekend co-hosts toasted her because she could give birth at any time. However, she has not gone on an official maternity leave yet.

He comforts her and has helped her overcome some of the anxiety. They call their baby "Biscuit," and it helps to know that their little boy will have a piece of both of them.
