Al Roker has returned to TODAY after his months-long medical journey and he was welcomed back by not just his co-anchors but also his family, reported TODAY. On January 6, Roker returned to the 3rd Hour of TODAY with co-anchors Sheinelle Jones, Dylan Dreyer, and Craig Melvin. He was first admitted to the hospital in November 2022 for a blood clot in his leg which, Roker shared on Instagram, "sent some clots into my lungs."

He was released on Thanksgiving Day but was hospitalized again before finally going home to recuperate on December 8, 2022.



 

Roker's family celebrated his TODAY homecoming by surprising him with loving "welcome back" messages from his three children—Courtney, 35, Nick, 20, and Leila, 24. "Hey dad, just wanted to welcome you back to work and tell you I love you," said Courtney, standing next to her husband, Wesley Laga. "We are so proud of you and we can't wait to see you back in action back on the TODAY Show," his son-in-law chimed in.
