"Sometimes life surprises you with a dear friend who loves you for all of you—what a wonder it is to be in your glow SG!"

"From the moment our bellies touched seven plus years ago, it was like we had always been friends," she wrote. "Whether we are fancy or in matching pjs, singing or playing tennis, browning butter or drinking tequila, being sister wives or letting those men hang out with us … it's all better with you."

"Happy Birthday to a magical human," Daly added. "50 looks gorgeous on you!"

Guthrie had a big year leading up to her 50th birthday. This summer, she got to cover the Tokyo Olympics for work.

Months before, in June, she served as one of the many stars tapped to guest-host Jeopardy! following Alex Trebek's death. (The series has since hired Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings as well as actress and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik to split hosting duties.)

"I can't believe I got the opportunity to do it," Guthrie previously told PEOPLE. "I am a huge fan of the show, and I'm an even huger fan of Alex Trebek now that I know how hard it is to host Jeopardy! — it's really fast and very precise."

That same month, Guthrie also celebrated her 10-year work anniversary at The Today Show. Her colleagues and family had surprised her with a special on-air celebration. "Now all my dreams came true," she said at the time, adding of her coworkers, "Now, my whole family is here."
