Guthrie and Feldman, a consultant at a strategic communications firm in Washington, have been dating for four years. It’s the second marriage for Guthrie, who is 41, and Feldman’s first. He’s 44. Guthrie accepted congratulations from all during Monday’s show, even from the visiting Cooper. The couple hasn’t set a wedding date. Despite Al Roker’s prodding, don’t expect an on-air ceremony.
