I have all the same hopes that most women have. I want to get married and have kids; it just hasn't happened.'

It had been rumoured that she had called the relationship off when she moved to New York for her job on the Today show, but last year it was reported that he had bought an apartment close to hers in lower Manhattan.Miss Guthrie unwittingly found herself at the center of a huge row after Today host Ann Curry was sacked in June - after just one year as Matt Lauer's co-host.The subsequent backlash among viewers has led to ratings plummeting, and the NBC show has now been overtaken in the ratings war by its ABC rival Good Morning America - which is now the number one breakfast show in the US.
