TODAY fans were in tears on Thursday as Al Roker reunited with his wife and children on Thanksgiving.

Al, 68, was admitted to the hospital earlier this month for a blood clot in his leg, which broke into several chunks that reached his lungs, but he’s now back home with his loved ones.

Al’s wife Deborah couldn’t resist sharing snaps of his reunion with their kids on Instagram

His wife Deborah took to Instagram on Thursday and shared a sweet family photo of her cuddling up to her husband.

The couple were surrounded by their three children Leila, Courtney and Nicholas as they smiled for the camera at home.

Al was wearing a comfy-looking grey long-sleeved top and his trademark spectacles, but appeared frail and tired.

Deborah looked so happy to have her husband home and captioned the photo: “Thursday thankfulness and then some. Holding on tight and cherishing this moment like never before.

Hours before Deborah’s post, Al shared a heartwarming video of him exiting the hospital to head home for Thanksgiving dinner.

“This is my version of the Thanksgiving Day parade. Getting ready to leave the hospital. Time to blow this taco stand,” Al said in a video on Instagram.

It’s the first time he was forced to miss Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in over 25 years.

The veteran NBC anchor has presented the annual event on the ground since 1995 alongside co-anchors, including Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.

On Thursday, he shared a snap of himself watching the parade from a TV set in his hospital room and tweeted: “So much to be #thankful for on the #thanksgiving day. Leaving the hospital and home for #thanksgivingdinner.”

While reporting on the day’s festivities, Hoda, 58, and Savannah, 50, gave a shoutout to their colleague live on air.

Savannah chimed in with a sweet message for the Today Show veteran: “We love you, Al. We’ll see you next year.”
