Courtney hasn't revealed how far along she is in her pregnancy, but she said that she's "feeling great and the baby is healthy."
Al Roker's daughter Courtney Roker is flaunting her growing belly. The 36-year-old shared her first pregnancy update on Instagram on Sunday after announcing last month that she and her husband, Wesley Laga, are expecting their first child together. Courtney posted a photo of herself on Instagram grinning and wearing a light-blue dress with cutouts at the waist with the caption "Baby (& Mama) is growing."
Roker, 68, and his ex-wife Alice Bell, who were married from 1984 to 1994, share Courtney. In addition to Courtney, Roker and his wife, Deborah Roberts, are parents to son Nick, 20, and daughter Leila, 24, per PEOPLE. Deborah left an adorable comment on Courtney's baby bump picture, writing, "And so beautiful!"
Roker sat down with his colleagues on the TODAY show to discuss the news last month and revealed that his son-in-law's brother had accidentally told him about Courtney's pregnancy. "Wes' goofy brother accidentally dropped it in a text," he told Hoda Kotb. "Thanks, Cory."
"We're very excited. It's hard to believe," he expressed during the broadcast. "It still hasn't quite sunken in." To mark the beginning of his new chapter as a first-time grandfather, Roker joked that he already has a "grandfather name," saying, "I think in honor of my dad, I'm going to try to go for Pop-Pop."

Courtney hasn't revealed how far along she is in her pregnancy, but she tells TODAY that she's "feeling great and the baby is healthy." She said, “We are extremely excited to welcome a new member into our family and start this next chapter in our lives. We feel truly blessed and excited for our little miracle.”
Courtney first announced the news with a video set to Mariah Carey's Always Be My Baby, captioned "A new adventure is about to begin." Courtney shared pictures of herself and Laga in the video before the song switched to an acoustic version by Brent Morgan, which featured a sonogram.
Courtney, who works as a recipe creator and chef, married Wesley Laga in 2021. Courtney posted pictures from her wedding day on Instagram, including her and her husband's first dance as newlyweds. Later photographs show them posing with family members. Courtney shared a photo of herself smiling alongside her new husband in a different post. “My next chapter,” she captioned the post.
“A perfect magical evening being there for the marriage of my first princess @ouichefroker and @djweslaga with @debrobertsabc and #maidofhonor @cleilapatra and #groomsman @nick.roker155,” Al shared on Instagram at the time.
