Savannah Guthrie has revealed that how mother became later in life enabled her to truly & # 39; her time & # 39; to take with her children.
The 47-year-old journalist and her husband Michael Feldman, 50, had their daughter, Vale, four, in 2014 and their second child, Charley, who is now two years old, in 2016 when Savannah was in her midst & # 39; 40 .
But despite the fact that children are younger than expected, Savannah has said that this comes with some great benefits – despite the initial fear that her age would pose a risk to her babies.

Love: & # 39; I always wanted to be a mother and it took so long to get married – we are dated so long – that we thought it might be too late and we had lost our chance & # 39 ;, the 47- birthday boy said
The Today co-anchor, who started dating man Michael in 2009 before they got the knot in 2014, said to People: & # 39; I always wanted to be a mother and it took so long to get married – we are so long dated – that we thought it might be too late and we had lost our chance.
Journey: Savannah and Michael started dating in 2009 and getting married in 2014, when they announced they were expecting it
& # 39; When we found out we were pregnant, I don't think there are two happier people on this planet & she added.
Savannah added that she didn't mind becoming a mother at an older age than normal, because she said the pressure for her is now not as intense as it would have been when she was a few years ago.
The mother of the two explained that during the person's twenties and thirties they usually try to give their career a new boost.
She explained: I certainly have a good head on my shoulders, I can set priorities, and I think it is a luxury to feel calm enough and not feel the same pressure as in your 20s and 30s, If you really try to make your career come true.
& # 39; Now I can really take my time and enjoy our children & # 39 ;, she added. & # 39; We are lucky to have each other. & # 39;
And Savannah is not the only one who chooses to start a family at a lower level of life than normal.
Fellow Today Show co-star Hoda Kotb opened on how her & # 39; blessings seem to come later in life & # 39; in a personal story that she wrote today.
Convenience: Savannah said becoming a mother at a later stage meant she wasn't confronted with as much pressure as she had been in the 1920s and 1930s
Lifestyle: She said being slightly older gives her more time to enjoy her children because she can & # 39; prioritize & # 39;
Fortunately: & # 39; Now I can really take my time and enjoy our children, & # 39; said Savannah, before adding: & # 39; We feel happy to have each other & # 39;
She said: & # 39; At 30, I panicked that I was not married and had no children. Then I got married and it didn't work.
& # 39; I have breast cancer. Everything fell apart.
& # 39; And you think to yourself, my windows close left and right – I don't know what to do or where to go. & # 39;
Hoda adopted her first daughter Haley Joy at the age of 52.
And just last week, the co-anchor of the talk show announced that she had adopted a second child, Hope Catherine.
According to a CDC report from 2014, the average age of women with their first child has risen in the last forty years.
Since 2000, more than 40 US states have seen an increase in first birth, rare for women over 35 years of age.
It is not the first time Savannah has opened up about her personal life and her journey to having children.
The co-anchor of the Today show revealed that she was afraid of being pregnant at the age of 45 when she said she hoped everything would be okay.

When she spoke to People in 2017 after the birth of her first baby Vale, she said she was superstitious about her first baby.
As a result, she didn't even buy many things for her newborn before she gave birth.
She said: & I am 45 years old and so lucky. & # 39; I was hoping everything would be alright. & # 39;
Similarly, the two-year-old mother talked about how she did IVF during her second pregnancy with Health magazine earlier this year.
& # 39; I knew it was a winning fate to have a child – I was 42 when I had her. So I never dreamed I'd have two. But with Charley I did IVF, & she said.
& # 39; So I'd say Vale was a miracle, and Charley was a medical miracle. When making that decision about using IVF, my husband and I talked a lot about it. I didn't want to start a process in which we spent all the current search for a certain future … when our gift was so beautiful and beautiful and enough.
& # 39; But I also knew that I would like it if Vale had a brother or sister, especially since we are older, that it was important for me to have a brother or sister, someone to live with & # 39 ;, she added.
