"Today" show anchor Al Roker's wife Deborah Roberts melted her fans' hearts as she shared a rare throwback photo of herself looking happy in her husband's arms. 

Deborah Roberts is all about her man and she is not afraid to show it. The ABC News anchor and her husband,  Al Roker, have been together for nearly 25 years now and they are happier than ever. 

Roberts recently sent her fans in a frenzy after sharing a precious throwback photo of herself and Roker looking all loved up as they shared a hug.

In the picture that Roberts shared on Instagram, Roker looked chubbier than he is now as he held his beautiful wife in his arms. She leaned on to him as they smiled ear to ear. 

Roker looked dapper in a black tuxedo while Roberts donned a satin dress with a yellow and white hue. Her matching heels peeked out from underneath her beautiful dress.


The snapshot proves that Roberts has always been a fit one. Her arms looked toned and as always, she kept her makeup and accessories minimal. Sharing how far along she and her husband have come in life, Roberts captioned the post:

"So I’ve been swaying, twirling, and grooving with this unpredictable guy for nearly 25 years."


Roberts also let her fans know that Roker would be talking about his new book "You Look So Much Better In Person" in an Instagram live. 

Roker's weight was a major issue in their relationship.



The lovebirds have one of the most enduring marriages in the entertainment industry. Their relationship is one of a kind and they love to keep things light, always. 

Making a relationship work for that long is definitely not easy. Roker and his wife have had their fair share of differences and disagreements over the years. In fact, the couple agrees that they could not be any different.



For instance, Roker's weight was a major issue in their relationship. Roberts would be angry and frustrated because of that since she wanted him to be healthy and live his best life. Roker lost a whopping 160 pounds after he had gastric bypass surgery in 2002. 

They might not like the same food, the same music, or the same theater events, but their love for each other keeps them grounded. The couple shares two biological kids, Leila and Nicholas. Roker has a daughter, Courtney, from a previous relationship.
