As it turns out, it's not just Poppy's first name which carries special family significance. Her middle name, Louise, is a tribute to both parents' grandmothers' middle names, which were Louise and Lewis.

"We are so thrilled to name her after a man we so adore," dad Henry told "Today" of Poppy's first name. "We are thrilled."

The new baby – who weighed 7 lbs., 9 oz. at birth – joins big sister Mila, 2.

And, Poppy also has a special connection to another new member of the "Today" show family – she shares the same birthday with Savannah Guthrie's daughter Vale, who was born August 13, 2014.
