‘Today’s Savannah Guthrie Brings Kids to First Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Sweet Video

‘Today’s Savannah Guthrie Brings Kids to First Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Sweet Video

Making sure to spend as much time as possible with her family on this special day, Today’s Savannah Guthrie brought her kids to their first-ever Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in an incredibly sweet video.  

While gushing about Santa making his way to Herald Square, Guthrie told her co-host, Hoda Kotb, all about her children’s appearance at this Thanksgiving’s big event. “Two elves who have never seen the parade, even though their mother has been doing this for 11 years,” she explained. 

Savannah Guthrie then brought her children out in front of the cameras. “Say ‘hello’ to Vale and Charley!” the Today star declared. When she asked her children if her children were excited to be at the iconic event, Vale answered, “Yes.” Guthrie then asked Charley what he was looking forward to. “Stuff…” he said. “And stuff and stuff.” He further commented that he was excited to see the Snoopy float.

According to People, Guthrie’s daughter Vale joined her during the Halloween celebration as the Today Show co-host dressed up as Taylor Swift. While on stage, Guthrie and Vale sang and danced to Cruel Summer. 

Savannah Guthrie Previously Spoke About Setting Boundaries for Her Children 

Last spring, Savannah Guthrie spoke about why it was important to set boundaries for her children. She noted that she and her husband, Mike Feldman, do not play “good cop” or “bad cop” while parenting. 

“I’ve never subscribed to that old-fashioned notion of ‘Wait until your father gets home,’” Guthrie explained. “You’re not parenting if your kid hasn’t called you mean — that’s how you know you’re doing it right.”

Although she doesn’t like to hear it, Guthrie explained that it’s important to set boundaries. “You have to have those limits, and your kids won’t like them. So sometimes you have to let them think that you’re mean.”

Guthrie further explained that she has taught her children to make their beds every morning as well to learn responsibility. “I always tell them, ‘I’m not judging on perfection, I’m judging on effort,’”

However, the Today star admits that she’s far from being the perfect parent. “I can’t say that I’m succeeding on any given day, but my hope is to raise kind, loving, and appreciative children.”

In 2022, Hoda Kotb recalled how Savannah Guthrie explained mental illness to her daughter Vale. “She said to her daughter, ‘Some people get injuries that you can see. They break their arm or stub their toe, and some people have injuries that you can’t see, they’re on the inside,’” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, that is so brilliant. I was trying to write it in the note section on my phone.”
