Deborah Roberts shared this snap of her and husband Al Roker - missing the days they went out dancing 

Receiving the news from his doctor was just the beginning, as he admits telling his beloved wife and his children was one of the hardest things he’s ever had to do. 

The much-loved Today show weatherman revealed in November that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in September, and in a new joint interview with Deborah in People magazine, he explained how he delivered the upsetting news to his loved ones.

The doctor had told Al he was suffering from an aggressive form of cancer but that although that was "bad news" the good news was that they had caught it early.

It was his wife who took it the worst. "My heart just sank to my toes," she said. "Because it never even occurred to me that there was anything serious. When he said, 'It's cancer,' I just lost it."

The TV personality couldn't tell his children face to face and had to do it via Zoom. "There were tears but they rallied around," Al said.
