Earlier this week, Deborah gave worried fans some insight as to why her husband has been missing from the morning show.
While a few TODAY show hosts have taken turns being out recently, Al was consistently missing for a couple of weeks.
Unable to get answers straight from the source, fans flocked to the meteorologist’s wife’s Instagram.
Deborah posted late last week about a new GMA segment she was working on for the show’s next book club pick.
Though the photos didn’t feature Al, followers still made sure to inquire about Al in the comments.
One concerned social media user asked: “Is Al Roker ill? Hasn’t been on Instagram or on the Today show. Worried.”
“Ahh thanks for this,” Deborah wrote on Friday. “He’s a bit under the weather but ok.”
Al divulged that he had blood clots in his leg and lungs with an Instagram post.
He shared a photo of a flower bouquet and a coffee mug, captioned: “So many of you have been thoughtfully asking where I’ve been.
“Last week I was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in my leg which sent some clots into my lungs.
“After some medical whack-a-mole, I am so fortunate to be getting terrific medical care and on the way to recovery.”
“Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers and hope to see you soon. Have a great weekend, everyone,” he closed.
During Friday’s episode of Today, the hosts mentioned Al’s absence as they addressed fan concerns.
‘LOVE YOU, AL!’
Following the news, Al’s co-host Savannah Guthrie reacted: “You’re the strongest person we know. We miss you and will see you soon!”
“Al Roker– hurry back to us… counting the days xoxoxo,” wrote Hoda Kotb.
Another co-host, Dylan Dreyer, commented: “Love you Al and praying every day for a speedy recovery!”
“Love you Al! Hurry home. You are missed and loved beyond measure!” said Jenna Bush Hager.
