Jenna Wolfe, Stephanie Gosk Welcome Baby Girl

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

TODAY show anchor Jenna Wolfe and NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk have welcomed a daughter. Harper Estelle Wolfeld Gosk was born August 21, and weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces.

“Estelle is my grandmother’s name,” explains the TODAY anchor. “No matter what, we were always going to have Estelle and we fell in love with the Harper. It’s the perfect combination of athleticism, gentleness, kindness, beauty and a little TV moxie, so we figured it was perfect.”

And in case you’re wondering why Harper’s last names don’t exactly match Moms’? Wolfe reveals that Wolfeld is actually her legal name.

“It’s out of the bag,” she jokes. The daughter of two television personalities “is not ready for a TV name quite yet, but if she ever wakes up and starts doing something TV-related, perhaps we can give her something.”

“This is the greatest gift,” Wolfe, 39, continues. “Anyone who’s a parent understands what I’m talking about.”

“We get paid in our jobs to come up with the right words,” NBC News foreign correspondent Gosk, 41, explains. “All I keep saying is ‘Wow.’ I can’t find the words.”

“This is the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us,” the Today weekend anchor tells PEOPLE exclusively in its new issue. “But I don’t want to bring my daughter into a world where I’m not comfortable telling everyone who I am and who her mother is.”

“The beauty is that we live in a time where there’s no need for secrecy,” Gosk, 40, adds. “This is a spectacular moment for us.”

Together for three years, the pair began discussing starting a family and after deciding Wolfe would carry the child, underwent artificial insemination with an anonymous donor.
