The Today Show will soon be missing a familiar face.

Savannah Guthrie announced Friday morning that Monday will be her last day for awhile on the show, because she's heading on her maternity leave.

"Universal sign for when it's time to go: When none of your shoes fit because your cankles are so large."

But mostly she doesn't want to go into labor on live TV (although, we're sure that couldn't hurt the ratings). Guthrie is expecting her first child with husband Mike Feldman later this month. She's already had a baby shower, but her co-anchors promised that there will be some special surprises on Monday. Watch the full clip below.
