It took us so long to get married — we dated for so long — that we thought maybe it was too late and we’d lost our chance.

Anchor and her husband Michael Feldman have two children – daughter Vale and son Charley.

The mother of two explains that becoming a mom a little later in life has its own perks. She says:

I definitely have a good head on my shoulders, I am able to prioritize, and I think there’s a luxury to feel calm enough and not to feel the same pressures as in your 20s and 30s, when you are really trying to make your career happen.

Savannah adds that she can really take her time to enjoy her children.
