Al's birthday celebrations come after he shared an impressive health milestone. Following his weight loss and cancer diagnosis, the star revealed that he has officially made it to a whopping 210 consecutive days of walking all those steps.

Since his commitment, which started approximately the very first week of 2022, Today reports that the host has not only walked the Brooklyn half marathon, but he has also lost 45 pounds thanks to his walking routine and "low-carb diet."

Al ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon in May

Al has been open about his health and weight loss journey after undergoing gastric bypass surgery in 2002, which saw him lose more than 100lbs following the procedure.

In an article for Today, he wrote: "My wife is a size 4; she runs, she works out and it became a problem in our marriage. On a Saturday she’d get up, get dressed to run and I’d be sitting on the couch or making breakfast for the kids.

"She was upset about it, she was frustrated, she was angry. She thought, 'Why don't you care enough about yourself and why don't you care about me and our relationship enough to change?' And I said, 'Look, it's not about you. It’s about me.'"
