Al Roker‘s granddaughter, Sky Clara, made her debut into the world on July 3, 2023. Recently, the TODAY weatherman took to social media celebrating his granddaughter’s two-month birthday.


The 69-year-old adoringly captioned his post, “Here’s to my little Sky Clara being here 2 months. That went fast.”

This is Roker’s first grandchild thanks to his 36-year-old daughter Courtney and her husband, drama teacher, actor, writer, director, Wesley Laga. On Roker’s hit NBC daytime entertainment/news show, Roker opened up about becoming Sky’s grandfather, saying that has been “magical”.

“It is magical, it really is,” Roker said to TODAY co-anchors Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin and Sheinelle Jones.

He continued, “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.”

Many may think that the couple gave Courtney’s dad a nod with the name “Sky” as he is the TODAY show’s meteorologist. However, that’s not the case. Roker said that Sky’s first name “had nothing to do with the fact that I’m a weather person.” “Clara,” on the other hand, does have a familiar connection. Roker said that it is the name of Courtney’s godmother.

Roker has been a doting grandfather since day one. Eight weeks ago, on July 5th, two days after Sky’s birth, “Pop Pop” posted, “And then this little girl came into my life. Welcome to the world, Sky Clara Laga. In love all over again.”

He continued directing his conversation to his daughter and son-in-law saying, “Thank you, Courtney and Wes for such a perfect blessing. You baby is beautiful. Already planning the ways to spoil her and then hand her back.”

We are excited to watch Sky Clara’s journey towards adulthood through the eyes of her proud Pop Pop.
