Of course, we were pretty happy about what kept her away, too! After all, she's been on maternity leave since giving birth to the newest member of her family — little Charley.

Savannah, husband Mike Feldman and their 2-year-old daughter Vale have had their arms — and hearts — full since Charley's Dec. 8 birthday.

"Yesterday, I admit, I got a little bit weepy because it's a transition," Savannah said of her return. "It's the end of an era."

And who can blame her for feeling that way? As an adorable 60-second video of her happy home life proved, the past 12 weeks have been full of beautiful moments.

"It's been such a lovely and magical time," she said.

But it's lovely to be back, too.

"I’m delighted," Savannah added. "It's the best place to be."
