Today's Savannah Guthrie's new addition to family home sparks animated reaction from fans

Savannah Guthrie already has her hands full juggling a full time career and busy family of four - make that five!

The fun-loving Today host took to Instagram to reveal she'd been gifted something very special from a fellow celebrity and frequent on-air guest.

Alongside a photo of a potted plant, Savannah wrote: "Hi. this is Martha, my new plant. She was given to me by none other than @marthastewart (her namesake, who told me she never names her plants. Oops! Mistake #1!) Hope to keep her alive and thriving - a first for me in plant care. Tips welcome. #MarthathePlant #plantsofinstagram."

Fans applauded her honesty and commented: "A plant from Martha is a lot of pressure," while others chimed in with plant-care advice. 

"There is an app called planta that reminds you when to water and it helped me SO much," added another of her social media follower and a third wrote: "I use moisture sticks from Amazon to know when to water my plants, it helps me a lot since my plants are on different watering schedules."
