She's busy planning a wedding, but there's something else Savannah Guthrie would like to plan in the future – a family.

"I would love to have kids," the Today show host, who got engaged to her boyfriend of four years, Michael Feldman, in May, tells ELLE magazine for its September issue (available Aug. 20).

"I hope so, if we're lucky and blessed, but who knows what life holds, you know? I'm 41 years old."

Guthrie, who celebrated her one-year anniversary as a Today co-host in July, also talks about losing her father when she was a teenager.

"Matt [Lauer, her Today co-host] asked me at dinner the other day, 'What would you say the impact of losing your dad so young was on you?' And I said ultimately it made me more sensitive and gentler, and, I hope, kinder," she says.

"Of course it was terrible, and I think about him every day – but there's something about a dramatic event like that that makes you a bit more tender, a bit softer."
