    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    "Today" anchors Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer sat down with Seth Meyers on Tuesday's "Late Night," showing a less serious side they don't always get to reveal while delivering the news. 

    First, Meyers talked about the early shift of their show. Guthrie said she gets up at 3 in the morning, which Meyers joked is also "when Hoda and Kathie Lee are rolling in."

    Guthrie, who recently got married and revealed that she's also pregnant, talked about getting used to her growing bustline.

    "You should see her in the makeup room now, she literally just sits in the chair and looks at her own boobs," Lauer said.

    "It's outta control!" Guthrie said.

    Then, Lauer told the story of how he discovered Guthrie's pregnancy while engaging with people at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

    "We had a guy in a restaurant teach us how to do shots the military style on your elbow but I noticed that Savannah was faking it the entire time," Lauer said. "So I got home and the lightbulb went on and instead of knocking on her door I texted her and asked her."

    "I said how can you ask me that when Putin is listening," Guthrie said. "Where is your operational security?"

    "So for the whole rest of the trip she would subtly slip me the vodka she was supposed to drink. She owes me a liver," Lauer said.

    "So she was pregnant but you were drinking for two," Meyers joked.

    Then Meyers asked what Guthrie had learned about Lauer after anchoring with him for almost two years. She revealed that he isn't very tech-savvy when it comes to his phone.

    "Texting is actually the outer limits of his technical abilities and every morning he's like 'why do these wireless networks keep popping up?,'" Guthrie said.

    Finally, Meyers showed a clip of Lauer telling the nursery rhyme "This Little Piggy" to Michael Gargiulo of NBC 4 New York--but Lauer did so by using Guthrie's toes on the "Today Show" desk.
