Today Show: Martha Stewart’s Match.com Results
Just over a month ago, Martha Stewart launched a search for a man using Match.com, and eventually narrowed it down to Stan, a filmmaker, and Larry, an international steel trader. She went out on dates with each of them, so how did they turn out? She came on the show with Match Inc.’s CEO, Sam Yagan to fill us in on Martha Stewart’s Match.com results.
Martha Stewart enjoyed both dates, and said that it got her thinking about dating as a nice thing to do. She started talking business with Larry, so any romantics are on hold. She would go on second dates with both of them, she said. Using Match even opened up a few new doors for her, as she has been set up with a few dates since then.

Today Show: Woman Gives Birth And Didn’t Know She Was Pregnant
A woman recently gave birth to a baby that she never knew she was pregnant with. 33-year-old Trish Stain never missed any periods and had no baby belly. It wasn’t until she experienced crippling abdominal pain while training for a half marathon that something seemed off. With her husband having a vasectomy, though, she never would have guessed the “problem” was a baby.
Her husband John was just as shocked as her when Trish delivered a healthy 6 pound 6 ounce baby girl, which Trish said she may call “Miracle.”
Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC News Chief Medical Editor, said that this is possible, referring to it as “Denial Of Pregnancy,” something that has been published in medical journals. According to one study, 1 in 475 women gave birth to babies when they didn’t know they were pregnant. This has happened to both obese women and anorexic women.
