Al Roker had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!

The Today show weatherman, 69, shared a photo on Instagram Thursday, in which he could be seen attending the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade alongside his family.

Photographed in the middle of the group, Roker posed beside his wife, Deborah Roberts, and their son, Nicholas Roker, on one side, as his daughter, Courtney Roker, was seen opposite them holding her baby daughter Sky Clara beside her husband, Wesley Laga.

"My little Sky’s first @macys #thanksgivingdayparade," the proud grandfather — who is also dad to daughter Leila Roker — captioned the festive family snapshot.

Courtney, 36 — who Roker shares with ex-wife Alice Bell, whom he was married to from 1984 to 1994— got engaged to Laga in April 2020, and the pair wed on June 4, 2021, at The Ashford Estate in New Jersey.

In March 2023, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child, and Sky was then born on July 3.

One week after her birth, Roker opened up about his granddaughter on an episode of Today, saying, "It is magical, it really is."

"The thing is, everyone tells you it’s going to be 'this thing' and you don’t know; it’s like when they tell you about having your first child. And then to hold this little girl, knowing almost 35 years ago I held her mom? And here she is, 5 lbs., 15 oz. 19 inches long, and she’s just perfect," he added.

Roker's attendance at the Macy's parade this year was particularly meaningful, after he missed last year's festivities while he was recovering from blood clots in his legs and lungs.

It was the first time that the famed television journalist had missed the parade since 1995.

"Look, I missed last year," Roker said during this year's broadcast, which aired on NBC. "I am so thankful to be anywhere this year, but especially here."

"I say, 'Yay, let's have a parade!' " he added while corresponding with co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.
