Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb have long made magic happen on the set of the Today show. Not only did the pair make history as the first female duo to anchor the much loved morning show, but they also juggle motherhood while doing it.

And yes, they now even have their own Barbie dolls.

Barbie® honors journalists Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb as role models, or “Sheroes,” for breaking boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls.

“Nice to meet you, Barbie,” Guthrie wrote on her Instagram page on Monday (Nov. 12) alongside pics of her and Kotb delighting in the new doll creations. “Of lifetime thrills, shaking hands with my very own Barbie is up there. What a cool thing for Mattel and Glamour Mag to do! She even has an outfit change into my favorite jeans-blazer-glasses uniform complete with charm necklace.”

The Today hosts will officially be awarded the dolls at the upcoming Glamour Women of the Year Summit.

“As we head into our 60th year, it is important that we continue to shine a light on female role models – or Sheroes as we call them – like Savannah and Hoda, to show girls they can be anything,” says Lisa McKnight, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Barbie in a recent press release. “Savannah and Hoda have modernized morning news and allowed more women and girls to see themselves, and their stories, reflected on television.”

So what do you think – it’s the perfect Christmas gift, right?
