Savannah Guthrie shared the one thing she can't live without as a mom — tequila.

Just kidding.

During Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s annual Bunny Hop fundraiser, Guthrie, 47, joked to People that the Mexican liquor was her go-to mom product. In all actuality though, Guthrie, who has two kids under the age of five, said she relies on Spotify's audio books.


“A lot of us don’t want to have our kids in front of the screen all the time but if you want to get anything done around the house you sometimes have to,” Guthrie said. “A good middle ground is you can find children’s audio stories on Spotify, and it’s great!”

The "Today" show personality said her kids can listen to books like "Cinderella" and "Peter Pan" and still be able to use their imagination.

Guthrie attended the fundraiser in New York with her co-anchors, Jenna Bush Hager and Dylan Dreyer.

The mom shares two kids with Michael Feldman, Charles Max, 2, and Vale, 4.
