The Today star took to Instagram to announce the unfortunate update that his eldest daughter, Courtney Roker, has tested positive for COVID-19.

What's more, the 35-year-old received the positive diagnosis right as her birthday rolled around, but her dad is making sure she's still showered with love, even from totally unexpected stars.

The beloved weatherman took perfect advantage of the celebrity perks of being a Today host, and updated fans of his daughter's health with a heartwarming video featuring two beloved actresses that just so happen to be two of Courtney's favorites.

It was none other than Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey, who play the legendary Pam Beesley and Angela Martin on The Office.

Al ensured they relayed a sweet get well message to his daughter, and the two seem to have not failed at their task, of which the birthday girl said: "The best birthday present I could ask for!!!"
