It's an exciting time for Nick, who will soon be heading off to college after being accepted at the end of last year.

The news is all the 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.

The happy couple have been married since 1995

At the time Al added: "But those labels can be frustrating; they don't begin to describe who Nick really is."

"Do I get frustrated with my son sometimes? You bet," he shared. "But then I remember my dad, how understanding he was. And Deborah reminds me that I have to show my son not only that I love him but that I like him as well. More than that, I admire him."
