InstagramAl, 68, took to Instagram on Sunday to mark National Son Day one day late and couldn’t resist posting various pics of his boy[/caption]
The first image showed Nick cuddling up to his famous dad when he was just a tot, maybe four or five years old.
In the second image, the father and son duo were dressed up as the Super Mario Brothers, with Al taking the role of Luigi.
The third snap appeared to show Nick as he was approaching his teenage years as he and Al grinned from ear to ear whilst standing on a beach together.
In the fourth picture, Al held a proud and protective arm around his son at what appeared to be a class of some sort as Nick was wearing what looked like a black karate uniform.
The last two snaps showed Nick as an adult as he posed with his father at a sports game and outside in a beautiful-looking garden.
Al captioned the post: “Just found out it’s #nationalsonday and while it’s still #sunday, I want to wish @nick.roker155 the #bestsonever thanks for being my son.”
His 915,000 followers were quick to comment on the post as one person said: “It’s been so special watching him grow into the young man he is. Thanks for sharing these times with us.”
Another wrote: “Such a beautiful montage!!” while others couldn’t get over how tall Nick is now.
“Isn’t it awesome? One day, we look up, and they are so much taller than us, lol,” one person commented.
Another said: “Hard to believe how tall he is such a handsome man,” while a third wrote: “Nick is your “mini me”……although a little bit taller.”
Someone else joked: “You (Al) get shorter with each picture. You’re the best boy dad,” and a different fan added: “Look how tall he is! Great son.”
Another follower wrote: “Crack me up! All of a sudden he’s head and shoulders taller than you!!!”
“Wow how he has grown,” someome else remarked, while a different person added: “How’d he get so tall!? Must be all that delicious food you cook.”
Back in January, Al’s fans were left swooning over Nick after his wife Deborah Roberts shared a behind-the-scenes photo.
In the pic, the mother and son duo stood together in the gym while giving a thumbs-up gesture to the camera.
They smiled big in the behind-the-scenes photo, as Deborah wore a camo tank top and Nick wore a Dunder Mifflin Shirt.
There were exercise machines behind them and others working out as they took a picture break.
She captioned it: “Friday finish. Strength training is just more tolerable with a partner.”
“Thanks @nickroker155 for helping me get through an early morning workout before I head off to @abc2020 to prep for tonight’s report. #sigh #workout #proudmom.”
Deborah is a journalist for the ABC News division, working with 20/20, GMA, and others.
Nick is one of two children that he shares with Deborah, along with Leila, 24.
Al also has Courtney, 36, from a previous relationship.
