Recently, Al faced a terrifying health battle as he was hospitalized with blood clots.
His medical drama forced him off-screen – yet fans are now delighted he is back on The Today Show.
They have called out a “sharp” new addition to his look as he headed outside to meet fans.
Al’s images, posted to his Instagram page, show him meeting a host of smiling fans outside the studio.
The snaps show him beaming with joy as he posed for selfies with his adoring followers, as well as cheering them along with a fist as they waved their banners.
He then joined co-host Savannah Guthrie, 51, and the team as they spoke into microphones for the al fresco segment.
The TV veteran gushed in his caption: “Love hanging with our @todayshow plaza folks and my peeps @savannahguthrie @llamasnbc @jacobsoboroff.”
He had wrapped up against the chill in his smart blue suit and scarf – yet fans were most impressed with his trendy baseball cap.
One wrote: “Hi Al, you look so cute with the cap. Happy to see you and happy your feeling well. ”
Another commented on his attire and gushed: “Looking good Al.”
A third then wrote: “We love having you back, so happy you’re doing better!!”
Al was hospitalized in November 2022 after blood clots were discovered in his legs and lungs.
The weatherman was released on Thanksgiving Day but was suddenly re-admitted to the hospital just a day later.
Due to his health issues, Al was absent from the morning show from mid-November until he returned in early January.
It meant he was forced to miss festive events such as The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree.
Al opened up about his health battles on the show and revealed that he underwent a gruelling seven-hour surgery.
He said: “Look, I had two complicating things. I had blood clots, which they think came up after I had Covid in September.
“And then I had this internal bleeding going on, I lost half my blood. They were trying to figure out where it was.”
His wife of more than 20 years Deborah Roberts revealed that Al was a “very, very, very sick man.”
IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH
Al’s wife has been supporting him through his recent health battles – yet she has suffered her own medical issues too.
She told how her “body was screaming” – prompting her to take some time out.
While Al is making a slow recovery and has delighted viewers by returning to screens, his wife decided to step back briefly.
In the video filmed outside, she acknowledged to her followers that she “has a frog in her throat” and felt under the weather.
“Sometimes your body says ‘Enough. It’s time to take a break, recharge, renew’ and I think my body is screaming that right now,” she said.
Thankfully, it seems that after a rest, things are back on track for both Deborah and Al.
The duo shared an incredibly sweet Valentine’s Day together this month, celebrating their 28 years of marriage.
And Al gave a hilarious insight into the pair’s relationship while hosting Today, sharing that his wife makes him “save” his stories for dinner so that they don’t eat in silence.
