Harper Estelle may be less than a day old, but she has already made her television debut. Harper, along with her mothers Gosk and Wolfe, appeared on Today Thursday morning.
Wolfe announced her pregnancy in March on Today and has been blogging about the experience ever since.
“Stephanie’s extremely adventurous, she’s been all over the world. You know me, there’s not a building I haven’t jumped off of. So, for us, this is, um, nothing like any of that. This is the adventure of a lifetime,” Wolfe said.
Gosk and Wolfe have been together for three years, and, while they have plans to marry, the two are more focused on parenthood. Following the announcement of Wolfe’s pregnancy, the couple spoke about how they went about getting pregnant. Wolfe called it “the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us,” in an interview with People.
The couple revealed in the interview that, once they decided Wolfe would carry the child, they decided to try artificial insemination – the biological father is an anonymous donor.
At the time, Gosk expressed her happiness that having a child was even a possibility, citing the changing social landscape.
“The beauty is that we live in a time where there’s no need for secrecy. This is a spectacular moment for us,” Gosk said.
