Jenna Wolfe and Stephanie Gosk Welcome Daughter Harper Estelle
Jenna Wolfe and Stephanie Gosk‘s baby girl has arrived.
Daughter Harper Estelle Wolfeld Gosk was born Wednesday, Aug. 21 at 7:31 p.m. She weighed in at 7 lbs., 13 oz.
“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 [one].”
“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.”
