Today Show: Savannah Guthrie Engaged To Michael Feldman
Willie Geist, Natalie Morales and Al Roker sat down with Savannah Guthrie for the Take 3 May 13 2013. Apparently, someone told Savannah Guthrie she couldn’t be on Take 3 until she could do something newsworthy. Over the weekend, her boyfriend, Democrat political and communications consultant Michael Feldman, proposed to her.
She said that her fiance is a great guy because he puts up with her, even though she’s “no picnic” sometimes. She said that all the signs of a proposal were there, but she didn’t notice them. He took her to the beach at sunset and opened a bottle of champagne.
“And I’m like, why don’t we go to the bar?” she said. “I am paid for my powers of observation and perception. They were not there in that moment.” But she said she was really shocked when he gave her the ring and she said yes. “This was the right time for us,” she said.
