Amid his return to work after knee surgery, the "Today" co-host showed just how much he loves his baby girl and her husband, Wesley, by paying an adorable tribute to them on their second wedding anniversary.

The following pic showed the soon-to-be grandparent with his adorable kid at the same event. For his outfit, he styled his denim pants with a pink-colored shirt and suit jacket. The father of three also threw on a cream Fedora hat and glasses to complement his whole look. Alongside the lovely photos, the doting father wrote:

"2 years ago today, these two tied the knot. Today we celebrated their about to be here, baby girl. So excited."

Another commenter remarked, "You are in for the time of your life. No way to describe the joy of becoming a grandparent in words!" A third added, "CONGRATULATIONS almost, Granddad!." Simultaneously, another fan was curious whether he would go by "Papa Al or Grampa."

Luckily for fans, in March, the "Quest for Camelot" voice actor had already mentioned his preferred grandfather's nickname when his beautiful daughter revealed her pregnancy news on social media.

Courtney shared a video set to a remix of Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby" to her Instagram, sharing that she and her spouse were about to welcome their first child together. 

The clip's transitions showed scenes of the happy couple in various ensembles, postures, and gestures. Finally, the post gave a view of their baby's sonogram. The black-and-white image displayed the fetus' skull, nose, and mouth.

The Weather Man Accidentally Learned Of The Gender Of His Unborn Grandchild

Last month, The Blast previously shared how the veteran weatherman found out the gender of his unborn grandchild. He stated that the secret was accidentally spilled too early by his daughter.

Last month, while attending the red carpet of the 31st Anniversary Gala of the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame Awards in New York City, Roker entertained an interview with ET on the red carpet.

He excitedly shared that Courtney is due this month, and he let slip the gender before reworking himself to say "grandchild." During the interview, the TV personality added that he never wanted to know the gender initially but received a surprise. 

Recounting when his daughter spilled the beans, he divulged that it all began with a plain text message. Roker said, "She [texted] me a sonogram picture, and I said, 'That baby looks just like you,' and she said, 'Doesn't she?' And then you see the bubbles," referring to the telltale ellipsis on chats when someone is typing. 

The fantastic father continued, saying, "[She goes] 'I'm so sorry!' and I went, 'You had one [job]!," added humorously, "I wanted to be surprised.
