Surprise, surprise! Savannah Guthrie had some big news to share Monday morning on the Today show. Not only did the 42-year-old journalist get married over the weekend, but she’s also four months pregnant.

Guthrie relayed that she and communications strategist Mike Feldman, 45, wed on Saturday near her hometown of Tucson, Ariz., “in the middle of the desert.” Shotgun wedding? No. She added that the couple had set the date before learning that they were expecting.

Speaking out

Scarlett Johansson is standing by her director. Sort of. The pregnant actress told The Guardian she thought Dylan Farrow’s letter dredging up sexual abuse claims against Woody Allen wasn’t a great idea.

“I think it’s irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on,” Johansson said. Dylan named the Match Point star in an open letter as one of those in Hollywood who shielded their eyes from the situation.

Biting the hand

Even though he bailed out of Two and a Half Men, Angus T. Jones still can’t stop bashing the show that made him a millionaire. “It was difficult for me to be on the show and be part of something that was making light of topics in our world where there are really problems for a lot of people,” the former actor recently told Houston TV station KHOU. “I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it, and I was still doing it.” He’s now a college student at the University of Colorado in Boulder and spreads the gospel at churches around the country.

In 2010, the 20-year-old became the highest paid child actor in television history at 17 pulling in $300,000 per episode.

No cameras, please

Of course, Beyonce and Jay Z are invited to the sure-to-be grand wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West this summer (rumored to be at Versailles in Paris), but sources tell RadarOnline the Halo singer is going to keep a low profile because Bey’s (alleged) worst fear is appearing on Keeping up with Kardashians.

You’re hired!
