Katie Couric unearthed a decades-old video of her former “Today” co-host Bryant Gumbel making cringeworthy comments about her upcoming maternity leave.

Couric reached into the archives to help promote an op-ed in her “Wake-Up Call” newsletter about mandatory paternity leave. The footage, first spotted by Mediaite, features several comments made by Gumbel that wouldn’t fly in 2019.

The article goes on to state the following:

Luckily for Gumbel, the awkward segment occurred back in 1991.

The co-hosts appear to be simply having fun, but the footage is a reminder of how times have changed. A pregnant Couric told viewers that she would be away for the NBC morning show for several weeks because of maternity leave, but Gumbel didn’t seem to support the decision.
