Leila – who Deborah, 62, shares with The Today Show host Al Roker, 68 – visited her family in New York for the summer, but returned to Europe after her stay.

In one photo in the social media post, Deborah captured herself, Leila, and Al, alongside their younger son Nick, as they smiled in a restaurant.

For the second shot, the Good Morning America star snapped a selfie of the group as they traveled in a car alongside their pet dog.

Deborah captioned the post: “And that’s it. Our #summer visit with our baby girl has come to an end. But first a stop @lavenueatsaks before the airport and her departure.

“Missing @cleilapatra already. Even as adults… still hard to let go and hug goodbye. Anyone else know the feeling? #family.”


Leila was born on November 17, 1998, in New York.

Leila studied journalism at the American University of Paris.

After graduation, she took a job overseas that allowed her to continue living in France.

The young woman previously interned at several fashion companies, including L’Oreal and Lela Rose.

In addition to working in Japan covering the Olympics for NBC, she also worked as a production runner for Peacock at the Tokyo Summer Olympics in 2021.

The same year Leila graduated from the American University of Paris, the journalist shared photos of her father and mother visiting her in Paris.

One photo showed the trio enjoying dinner at a restaurant in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Leila returned to the United States this month to join her brother’s birthday celebrations, and met her baby niece for the first time.


Al married Deborah in 1995, and share two children – Leila and Nick.

Al also has a daughter Courtney, 36, from a previous relationship.

The duo have been proclaimed the “cutest couple” by fans, and have been married for almost 28 years.

Al announced earlier this month that Courtney gave birth to his first grandchild.

The famous weatherman gave fans a glimpse at their family’s new addition on Instagram, and revealed her name to the world.

“And then this little girl came into my life,” he captioned the post.

“Welcome to the world, Sky Clara Laga. In love all over again.”

The TV personality continued: “Thank you, Courtney and Wes for such a perfect blessing. Your baby is beautiful.”
