(NBC News) - Congratulations, Savannah Guthrie!

The TODAY anchor and her husband, Mike Feldman, welcomed a son, Charles Max Feldman, on Thursday morning. "Charley," as he will be known, weighed in at 9 lbs. 8 oz. and measured 21.5 inches long. He's named after Savannah's late father and Mike's grandfather.

Matt Lauer announced that Charley arrived at 8:59 a.m. and that "Momma and Dad are doing great.”

“It is one cute little boy," said Matt, who has already paid the little one a visit.

"I was called in to bring wine, so we may have had a little toast," he said.

This is the second child for Guthrie and Feldman, who also have a 2-year-old daughter, Vale.

TODAY announced the joyous news upon the opening of Friday's program and Savannah's colleagues noted their friend already was back to texting and tweeting.

Unlike her first pregnancy, Savannah chose to learn the gender of her baby so she could help prepare Vale for her role as big sister.

"I thought, it's already enough upheaval for a little girl to have a new baby — we got to tell you what kind of baby," she explained back in September.

Savannah revealed the baby's gender on air with the help of blue milkshakes inside Studio 1A and, outside, something less subtle — a plane flying an aerial banner declaring, "It's a boy!"
