Al Roker’s Wife Wishes Fans ‘Comfort and Ease’ One Year After ‘Today’ Host’s Hospitalization

For a stretch of time, Today weatherman Al Roker was hospitalized with a number of different health ailments. These days, though, Roker is back up and working with the morning crew again on NBC. But Roker’s wife might have given her husband’s fans a little bit of a scare.

In a recent social media post on Instagram, Roker’s wife, Deborah Roberts, shared a selfie in the Instagram Story section. The photo was simply of Roberts being outside under the clear, blue sky. She was a bit bundled up for the cold weather, but not too much,

She wrote, “Wishing you comfort and ease on this day!” In looking at Roberts’ timeline, it shows that the photo was put up there on Sunday. Roberts, 63, who is a host of the long-running news show 20/20, happened to share a photo of Roker sitting up in a hospital.

Al Roker Fans Confused Over Hospital Photo

Well, to just let people know the truth, that photo was taken over a year ago, according to Suggest. In the image, Roker sat in a chair, donning a blue-and-white hospital gown.

“Friday flashback. What a difference a year and a whole lotta blessings make! #thankful beyond words @alroker #grateful #heart,” Roberts wrote in the caption.

Last year, Roker was hospitalized because of blood clots in his lungs and legs. But this year? Roker has received a clean bill of health this year. He even was out there hosting the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.

Roker and Roberts are making sure Al has plenty of downtime. So, they and other family members headed out for an apple-picking trip. More photos were taken there.

Roker Admittedly Enjoying His Time As Grandfather

These days, Roker has another job description to his name: Grandfather. Roker apparently is quite happy being a grandfather to Sky. That baby was born in July 2023. Roker said that he “couldn’t be happier” and he’s been in love with Sky.

Roker is clearly enjoying being a grandfather to Sky, who was born back in July of this year. The host shared that he “couldn’t be happier” and has been in love with her since Day One.

With Roberts by his side, Roker has been able to deal with numerous different medical complications. One thing to also consider in this unique marriage of the day is that Al and Deborah are television reporters of some type.

Due to the fact that both know what it takes to fill a stadium or arena, they just seem to gel well.
