Wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with a vaccinated sign, Nick smiled and admitted he was excited at the news as his mom hugged him and dad congratulated him. 

The news is made even more special since Nick, who is the youngest of Al's three children, is "somewhere on the (autism) spectrum and maybe obsessive-compulsive," the TV star previously told Guideposts magazine.
