Fans Gush Over Al Roker's 'Precious' Photos With Granddaughter Sky

Al Roker

Al Roker appears to be loving life as a grandpa.

The Today co-host has shared several photos of his 11-month-old granddaughter, Sky, with fans since her arrival last summer. A new montage of snapshots the weathercaster shared on Instagram on Saturday, June 8, further demonstrated how much he enjoys getting to know his first grandchild.

For his Instagram post, Roker, 69, created a flip book effect by compiling four photos taken mere seconds apart. The first picture showed Roker smiling lovingly at Sky as she sat on his lap, looking up at him. The second image showed Sky angling her head back for a better look at her grandfather, and the third showed Roker leaning down to plant a kiss on Sky’s forehead. The fourth and final image showed Roker and Sky looking at the camera with big smiles splashed across their faces.

”My girl!!” Roker wrote in his Instagram caption. He fittingly paired the images with a clip from Natalie Cole’s “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love).”

Dozens of fans gushed over the “so cute and precious” photos in the post’s comment section.

“My goodness, she does love her PopPop!” one fan wrote as another commented, “So nice to see you enjoy being a GPa.”

“Awwww I love how she looks at Pop Pop! She’s beautiful ❤️❤️,” another fan wrote.

“She is adorable! There are no words to describe how a grandparent feels when their grandchild looks at them with such love in their eyes and smiling face,” one Instagram user commented.

“I love how a baby turns a grown man into mush.😍,” another fan said.

As one Instagram user pointed out, Roker’s “first Father's Day with Sky” will be next week! Roker became a grandfather last July when his oldest daughter, Courtney Roker Laga, gave birth to her first child.

This Father’s Day will be the first Roker celebrates as a grandfather—and less than three weeks later, his family will celebrate Sky’s first birthday on July 3.
