There's good news off-camera on the Today show.
Co-host Savannah Guthrie is engaged to marry her boyfriend of four years, Michael Feldman, who proposed over this Mother's Day weekend, the morning personality, 41, announced on the show Monday.
"Good for you and congratulations to Mr. Feldman," said her anchor mate Matt Lauer. "He's a great guy."
Guthrie, who was married (and divorced) once before, from 2005 to 2009 to BBC News presenter Mark Orchard, said she wouldn't let her wedding be broadcast on the show.

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."

You've seen her face around NBC before, but now you'll be seeing it a lot more: Savannah Guthrie has officially been chosen to replace Ann Curry as Matt Lauer's Today Show co-host, the network announced Friday morning.
"In just a few short years Savannah, has become a standout member of the news division as well as the ultimate team player," NBC News President Steve Capus said in a statement on Friday. "She's got an undeniable range, and she's earned the trust of the news community, her colleagues and our viewers alike. I couldn't be happier for Savannah and the entire Today team."
The 40-year-old Arizona native is no stranger to the morning show, of course – she's been co-anchoring the 9 a.m. hour since August 2011, and she will continue her role as NBC News chief legal correspondent.
Not too familiar with Guthrie and her friendly yet hard-hitting style? Here are five things to know about Today's newest co-host.

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.

Ann Curry will no longer co-host the Today show – effective immediately.
"This is not easy to say," a choked-up Curry, 55, announced on Thursday's show, as her costars sat on the sofa next to her. She said Thursday would be her last day as a regular on the show, but "I will still be part of the Today show family, in a different role."
She said she has been "given a fancy new title" and will roam the globe for NBC, reporting the news.
With tears in her eyes, she expressed her gratitude and love for the viewers and the behind-the-scenes staff, and said, "To those of you who saw me as a groundbreaker, I am sorry that could not carry the ball across the finish line – but, man, I did try."
