"He eats like a horse."
That's proud dad Bill Rancic describing his baby boy's appetite on the Today show Tuesday morning.
But it wasn't long ago that Rancic and his wife Giuliana had no idea how their son Edward Duke, who was born via gestational surrogate on Aug. 29, would take to the bottle.

Things usually get slippery on the fourth hour of Today, but even Kathie Lee Gifford is feeling shaky after Thursday's episode.
In a segment featuring adoptable rescue dogs, the morning show's co-host picked up one of the visiting pooches.
"Oh, puppy needs a bath-y," Gifford remarked, before the dog quickly tumbled out of her arms.
Gifford's fourth-hour partner, Hoda Kotb, backed away from the scene just as quickly, saying, "Puppy took a nose dive-y!" Gifford apologized profusely to the dog as she picked it up again to comfort it after the fall.

Jason Russell, whose viral video KONY 2012 Invisible Children went 'round the world in March, leading the filmmaker to have a naked mental breakdown in public, is now saying he is recovering and focusing on his health.
Russell, 33, the co-founder of Invisible Children, Inc., told Monday's Today show that the pressure of his success – his video about the abuses of Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony drew 100 million views within the first six days it was posted online – sent him into an emotional crash.
"My mind couldn't stop thinking about the future," Russell told TODAY correspondent Jenna Bush Hager of how the stress of public demand contributed to his mental downfall. "I literally thought I was like the future of humanity. It started to go to the point where my mind turned against me."

It's a clash of principles against the principal.
Kaitlin Nootbar may have had a 4.0 GPA, but a mere four-letter word – hell – used in her valedictorian speech is keeping the Prague, Okla., high-school graduate from receiving her diploma until she makes a public apology, insists school principal David Smith.
Appearing with her father David on Wednesday's Today show – after a viewer poll supported the teen for holding firm 88 percent to 12 (against the principal) – Kaitlin said she has "learned a lesson to always stand your ground."
The offensive word cropped up in her speech as the answer to a question about what graduates want to be in the future. Her response was, "Who the hell knows?"

When the Today show cameras were rolling, Ann Curry shined with her prowess for asking the right questions and reporting the facts.
But could she pick out the right outfit in the morning?
"One day, I wore a multicolored dress, and someone asked if I was trying to be Toucan Sam," Curry, 55, tells Ladies' Home Journal in an interview conducted just before she announced her departure from the NBC morning show in June. "But I chose it because I thought, 'This will perk up America.' "

Lauren Scruggs, looking sunny and admitting to being happy to be off her pain medicines since January, is "learning to live by faith and not by sight," she said in her first TV interview Thursday.
Positive attitude aside, she did admit to having some "difficult days" emotionally, "accepting the loss of my eye and hand."
"It's good to be out in public," the fashion blogger and model, 24, told Savannah Guthrie on Thursday's Today show, "letting people know I'm OK." (Editor's note: If you're on a desktop, click through above to see five new photos of Scruggs.)
Of her accident, in which she walked into a spinning airplane propeller while climbing out of a two-seater plane at a private airport in McKinney, Texas, last Dec. 3, "I remember my feet touching the ground, getting out of the plane," she said. "That's all I remember."

Apparently all the buzz about fresh faces on the American Idol judges' panel is not premature.
Jennifer Lopez, who's been on the show for two seasons, appeared on Thursday's Today show and said that when it comes to doing a third season, "I am thinking that it's time for me to go."
But leaving the Fox show, which crowned Phillip Phillips the season 11 winner in May, won't be easy for Lopez, who, besides being mom to 4-year-old twins Max and Emme, is currently on tour with Enrique Iglesias and stars in the new animated movie Ice Age 3: Continental Drift.

Now that she's taken her spot next to Matt Lauer on the Today show, Savannah Guthrie has plenty of reasons to be happy – and possibly a little embarrassed, too.
On her official welcome to her morning gig Monday, Guthrie, 40, endured a friendly hazing-like induction, in which viewers caught a glimpse of a favorite childhood book about an aspiring cheerleader, as well as a clip of her singing and playing the guitar to Bob Dylan's "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go."
"It was just such a warm welcome, and how could you not feel really good after that?" she tells PEOPLE of her on-air introduction, which also included heartfelt comments from friends, her mother and former colleagues. "I'm thankful and excited for the future."

If you were worried for Ann Curry, it's all over.
After showing up for work at Today in recent days only to see a path being cleared for her past the cameras and on to the morning-show guillotine, Curry announced on air Thursday that she would be leaving her NBC co-host job scarcely more than a year since taking over from sage, sunny Meredith Vieira.
No replacement has been announced, but in the media universe, where truth is believed to reside, the scuttlebutt was that Matt Lauer's next co-host will be the crisp and companionable Savannah Guthrie, who helms Today's third hour.
