It has been about three months since the world said goodbye to the renowned guitarist Eddie Van Halen at 65, and for his family, life hasn’t been easy without him.

When asked by anchor Hoda Kotb how she and her son, Wolfgang Van Halen, have been faring since Eddie’s demise, Bertinelli got emotional and teared up. After appreciating the hosts, the chef said:

“It’s been rough. Very bittersweet. We’re doing OK. We spent the holidays together. I’ll see him later today. We’ve been spending a lot of time together.”

Bertinelli welled up when a photo of her, Eddie, and Wolfie in a warm embrace popped up on the screen. She admitted that it has been challenging as she finds herself about to text the “Eruption” crooner before realizing that she can’t.

Fans may recall that Eddie sadly passed away on October 6 after a long battle with cancer.

She concluded, thanking co-host Carson Daly for doing an excellent piece on her son, confessing that it touched her heart. Daly responded, describing Wolfie as an incredible young man who is a testament to both of his wonderful parents.

Bertinelli and the late Van Halen frontman were married for more than 20 years before they called it quits. They tied the knot in 1981 and separated in 2001 before their eventual divorce in 2007, but remained amicable up until Edie’s death.
