Vacationing in Paris is something many people dream about doing at least once in their lives. Some people want to mark a very special milestone with such a trip. That’s what “TODAY” host Al Roker and his wife are doing right now.
Roker and his wife, journalist Deborah Roberts of ABC News, are currently vacationing in the famous City of Light. And they are sharing the journey with their fans. According to PopCulture, Roker and Roberts are in Paris to celebrate their 26th wedding anniversary. The beautiful French city is also known as the City of Love, after all.

In another Instagram post from their trip, Al Roker shared a photo of him, alongside Deborah and Leila dining with the famous Eiffel Tower in the background. Needless to say, Leila’s parents were very happy to get to spend time with their daughter.
“Beyond fortunate to be able to spend our #anniversary with our girl in #Paris Viva la #passsanitaire,” the “TODAY” host captioned this photo.

What Leila has decided to do for a living shouldn’t come as a surprise. The 22-year-old is working as a journalist – just like her famous parents. It appears that the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, as the saying goes.
