Nick and Al are super close

The couple haven't revealed where Nick is hoping to go to college but they will be spending the next few weeks cherishing every moment they have with him before he heads off on his adventure away from home.

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.

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