'I mean first of all, in the '70s our parents never gave it this much thought, but we wanted to make sure she wasn't feeling displaced,' she explained.
'Jenna Bush actually gave me a really good idea which was to put picture of Vale on Charley's bassinet.'
Savannah said that she also put a lollipop into Charley's bassinet with him so Vale had double the surprise when she walked over to see him.
'Vale was like, "Oh, baby bother... 'oh, lollipop,' she recalled with a laugh.

'He already was super daddy, but now he is super, super daddy,' she explained. 'He and vale are so tight. You know, it's just so lovely and beautiful. We feel so thankful.'
Savannah recalled that when she was little she would ask her mother why she didn't have any children after her, and her mother would tell her that she knew her family was already complete — and she now understands what she meant.
'I feel that way,' she said. 'My family is complete and we are so happy.'
Savannah, who couldn't help but gust about her 'adorable' son, said he is a 'good little eater' and they have been getting three hour stretches of sleep.

Support system: Everyone at the Today show gathered around the anchor desk on Friday to announce the happy news and congratulate Savannah
Last week, it was announced that Savannah signed a new contract with the Today show that brings her annual salary closer to Matt's $20 million.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, she also spoke about preparing for baby number two, and how lucky she feels to become a mother again.
It has now been over four years since Savannah became co-anchor on Today back in July 2012, and she admitted in the interview that after focusing on her career for so long she did not know if having children was ever in the cards.
'I think that's why I feel such an acute level of gratitude about getting to have a baby. Because I know how late it is in the game, you know?' an emotional Savannah said in the interview.
'I'm a person of faith. It feels like the greatest embrace from God that I can imagine, to get to have a baby. And to get to have a second is just beyond.'
