Jenna Wolfe Kisses Newborn Baby Girl in First Photo From Stephanie Gosk
World, meet Harper Estelle Wolfeld Gosk! On Wednesday, Aug. 21, shortly after Jenna Wolfe gave birth to a baby girl, the Today show weekend anchor's girlfriend, NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk, shared the first photo of the couple's daughter via Twitter.
"First pic. We couldn't be happier," Gosk captioned the sweet shot, which shows a serene-looking Wolfe kissing the newborn's tiny head. "Thanks for all the great messages."
As previously reported, Wolfe gave birth to baby Harper at 7:31 p.m. on Aug. 21. She weighed in at 7 pounds, 13 ounces.
Just hours earlier, Wolfe wrote her final pre-baby blog post on Today.com, joking that she was working on "slightly borrowed time" and that her labor could literally begin at any second. "Goodbye for now! When we meet again, I'll be a mom," she titled the post.
"Steph thinks I'm a little nutty lately (and rightfully so)," she wrote. "But apparently there's a correlation between proximity to your due date and nesting nuttiness. (Watch me have this baby today.)"
"The next time you hear from me in this space," she continued, "we'll have a little bundle of wonder to introduce you to. Somehow between now and then, I'll go to the hospital, endure the IV, do a bunch of waiting, contracting, pushing, sweating, some cursing, crying, and eventually, falling...as in, falling madly and unconditionally in love with this baby girl."
"My life's going to change this week," she added. "A new word will be added to my bio: 'mom.' It's a little word with huge responsibilities. Easy to spell, hard to live up to. It's a word you have to earn. I've said it millions and millions and millions of times growing up, but only now will I truly understand its value."
