Savannah is loved for being so candid and open about her life but she rarely discusses her own childhood. 

Savannah is now a mom-of-two herself 

Recently, however, she had a sentimental conversion on the morning talk show where she opened up about the ups and downs of her upbringing, and honored her mom, Nancy Guthrie.

She detailed to co-host Jenna Bush Hager just how close they are and the sacrifices Nancy went through to take care of her and her sister.

Savannah opened up about her own childhood and her much-loved mom 

Savannah revealed that her father, Charles, passed away when she was just about to enter senior year of high school, and that she and her sister both felt a duty to take care of their mom.

explained how all through college she attended the University of Arizona and lived at home, not only because they "didn't have money to afford the dorms," but also, she said that: "My sister and I really felt like we should stick with my mom and not leave her alone."

When Savannah was offered a job which would take her to Bute, Montata, her mother insisted: "I'm not going to stand in the way of your dreams."
