Life got a little more beautiful over the weekend for Today show host Al Roker, as he celebrated the engagement of his daughter Courtney.

“I was waiting to get the ok, but now that it’s on her insta, we are so thrilled the @djweslaga asked @ouichefcourtney to marry him,” Roker wrote on his Instagram page alongside the hashtag  #shesaidyes. “Could not be more thrilled for these two.”

Indeed, Courtney did let the cat out of the bag on her own Instagram about her engagement to longtime boyfriend Wesley Laga, showing off her stunning ring and reflecting on the journey it has taken to get to this point amidst the continuing spread of the coronavirus and the subsequent quarantining procedures.

“Life sometimes takes you in a different direction for a reason,” she wrote. “We should have been in Paris, but with how the world is at the moment, it was placed on hold. Instead, Wes brought Paris to me with the music, lights and live cam shot of the Eiffel Tower on our TV. I said yes to my best friend last night and I am over the moon! Thank you Wes for making me your partner in crime for life. I love you.”

Similar to his Today show counterparts such as Savannah Guthrie and Craig Melvin, Roker has been filming his portion of the popular morning show from his home, as people across the country and around the world continue to self distance from one another.
