Al Roker's daughter Courtney is officially engaged, and she and the rest of her family are thrilled with the news.
Courtney Roker got engaged to her boyfriend Wesley Laga over the weekend, and it was an exciting family affair that everyone was thrilled to have. While they were supposed to be traveling to Paris this week where he was meant to pop the question, he ended up asking her at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Governments have imposed lockdowns on certain areas, and that's transitioned many into a work-from-home environment.
Nonetheless, that didn't stop Laga from bringing Paris over to Roker's home, complete with music, lights, and even a live shot of the Eiffel Tower on their TV. Ecstatic with the news, she shared with fans that there's always a reason for why things happen the way they do.
"Life sometimes takes you in a different direction for a reason. We should have been in Paris, but with how the world is at the moment, it was placed on hold."
Just like Courtney, Al himself made sure to announce the happy news to his fans. He revealed that he was thrilled that his daughter was asked to get married. He shared the big news along with a collage of the happy couple, ending it with the hashtag "#shesaidyes."
It's been a difficult time for many because of COVID-19, as it's hit many different parts of the world. Governments have imposed lockdowns on certain areas, and that's transitioned many into a work-from-home environment.
This work-from-home setup includes Al Roker, popularly known as the "Weatherman," who continues to deliver his weather reports from home because of their exposure to a colleague who was infected by the virus.

Following his 15-day isolation at home due to his exposure, he went on to have an extended quarantine period after the government imposed social distancing measures on people to try and stop the spread of the virus.
Now, seeing news reports from home have been a normal occurrence on TV. While it's a strange sight to see, it's a necessary precaution to keep members of the media safe from the threats of COVID-19.
