"I think she should decide what she wants to say about this, but I hope she won't mind me sharing this because I've never seen anything like this at a baby shower," the news anchor said after explaining that Meghan, 37, is "a very private person."

"The guests did flower decorations," she shared. "They brought in someone to explain how to arrange flowers. We each all made an individual vase, and then Meghan at the very end got in touch with an organization I've never heard of called Repeat Roses, and all of those were donated to different charities."
