Al Roker and his wife update on his health
Five hours ago, Al Roker’s wife took to Instagram with the photo everyone had been waiting for. The Today Show anchor had a huge smile on his face as he stood with his beautiful wife on one side of him and his daughter on the other. Deborah penned in a very brief caption attached to the precious family photo: “Home. Where the heart lives.”
Seven hours ago, Al Roker took to his Instagram. He included the same photo his wife shared in addition to two other photos. The first photo was just of himself with a huge smile on his face. The other photo was of him with his beautiful wife. His caption was slightly more detailed than Deborah’s:
Home! So incredibly grateful to family, friends, medical folks, @todayshow family and all your thoughts and prayers.
Overall, the Roker family didn’t have a lot of words to share beyond the fact that Al was home where he belonged. But, they did want the world to know they were thankful for the overwhelming love and support.
The Internet reacts to the good news
Unsurprisingly, celebration poured into the comments of both Al and Deborah’s posts. Since the first time the TV personality was hospitalized, many feared he would not survive. The fear of his death was so extreme it actually caused a death hoax to swirl as “Al Roker dead” trended across multiple social media platforms.
Many of Al’s past and present co-workers jumped into the comments along with viewers of The Today Show. Katie Couric celebrated in the comment section on both of their posts. Savannah Guthrie said jumping into the comments on Al’s post: “CUTIES!! Right where you belong.”
Here’s what other fans had to say about the good news:
- “Amen!!!!!! We are so so grateful you are home. That smile made my day.”
- “Wow! You had us worried for a moment, But We PRAYED‼️ Ok, Mr. Roker… Get well and STAY WELL‼️ We Still Need You.”
- “Thank you for hearing our prayers Lord! Blessing for complete healing Al!”
Fans of The Today Show were so happy to learn of the good news. They, however, continued to send prayers so he could finish healing at home and get back to living his life.
Are you relieved to know Al Roker is finally back home with his family?
