Savannah, 47, told Health.com on April 10, “I knew it was the winning lottery ticket to have one child—I was 42 when I had Vale. So I never dreamed that I would have two.”

She continued, “But with Charley, I did do IVF. So, I would say Vale was a miracle, and Charley was a medical miracle.”

The Today show host admitted she wrestled with the idea of a second child because of the stability she and her husband, Michael Feldman, had with one child. “But I also knew I would love for Vale to have a sibling—especially because we are older, it was important to me for her to have a sibling, somebody to do life with,” she said.

Savannah also gave a nod to other moms and said, “Going through what we did, it makes you realize that everything has to go just right to have a healthy baby. I really feel for so many women who are struggling and wishing and wondering, ‘When’s it gonna be my turn?’ I know. And I understand.”
