Before the reveal, Lauer teased, "You just had a baby about a month and a half ago. Am I correct in reading, Ms. Russell, that you have not yet revealed the gender of the baby or the baby's name?” Russell joked, "I mean, I guess not. I mean, I don't know, where do you reveal that?”
When asked about how her “The Americans" co-star and father of the baby, Matthew Rhys, is handling fatherhood, she revealed he's "doing well."
Sam is Matthew's first child and Keri's third. She is also a mom to daughter Willa, 4, and son River, 9, with ex-husband Shane Deary.
