Matt Lauer & Wife Annette Welcome Their Third Child

Matt Lauer and wife Annette welcomed their third child, a son named Thijs, on Tuesday.

“The baby was born this morning at 9:37 a.m. in New York City. He weighed 7 lbs., 4 oz.,” says Today spokesperson Megan Kopf. “Mom, Dad and baby are all very happy.”

The baby’s unusual name (pronounced “Tice”) is a shortened form of Matthijs, which is Dutch for Matthew.

“Annette is Dutch and in following with her heritage, the baby was given a Dutch name,” says a source.

This is the third child for the Today anchor, 48, and his wife, 41. Thijs joins brother Jack, 5, and sister Romy, 3.

Lester Holt filled in for Matt on the NBC morning show on Tuesday.

Matt revealed that he and Annette were expecting in August in an interview with the Sunday New York Times magazine.

“I was on Today for five years before I had children,” he said in the interview. “And back then the job took up a larger slice of the pie graph of my life than was healthy. When I had kids, that immediately changed. It flipped.”

I have to say that Thijs is one of the most unusual names I’ve heard in awhile…not that there’s anything wrong with that!

    Carleigh why don’t you and your 3 “friends” e-mail each other ? You need a lot more than Zanax, maybe electroshock therapy. By the way, since you think you know it all, it’s spelled Xanax.

    Life happens for a reason and you are not meant to be a mother. Feel sorry for the kids you have. If you talk in your house like you post on here no wonder your ex-fiance took off. Should of taken your kids with him.

    I don’t feel the least bit sorry for you. What goes around comes around and you deserve what life throws at you. Grow up and get over it. There was a reason you lost that baby. Deal with it and stop taking out your anger over you fucked up life with people you don’t even know.

    Obviously you don’t have a family that cares about you and you sure don’t have much respect for yourself because if you did you wouldn’t be on here putting everyone else down. You are so insecure it’s pathetic you.

    You are very evil, mean, nasty, think you know it all. Please e-mail or IM your 3 “friends” and give the rest of us a break. You make me want to join you ex-finance on the bar stool after reading your posts. He sure as hell doesn’t seem to give a shit about you and who could blame him.

    Go find a good psychiatric website, there are plenty of them.
