On Saturday, theToday show weatherman, 69, and the ABC News correspondent and anchor marked 28 years of marriage and documented the occasion by sharing sweet photos from throughout the years on their social media. 

Roker posted a carousel of images on his Instagram of him and Roberts, 62, starting with snaps from the couple's wedding day. One showed Roker in a tuxedo and his wife in a white dress, veil and long white gloves, another had Roberts feeding Roker a piece of wedding cake and a third pic captured the two hand-in-hand smiling directly at the camera.

The meteorologist also included photos of the couple's children in their younger years, the couple visiting the White House at Christmastime and posing with former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama, as well as a snap of the whole family — including dog Pepper — in their holiday pajamas. 

Roker and Roberts first met at NBC in 1990 and share two children, Leila and Nicholas. Roker also has a daughter named Courtney from a previous marriage.

And the Today star had family on his mind when he honored his wife in the caption for his Saturday post.

“28 years ago, @deborahrobertsabc promised to be there for better, for worse, thick and thin. Good times and bad. But the greatest gift is the family she has given me. Happy Anniversary, sweetheart,” he wrote.

Roberts, meanwhile, shared her own message on Instagram alongside a collection of photos of the couple during their relationship, including a fun shot of them posing next to a cake made to look like the front page of The New York Times.

Cute headlines were written in icing about the couple. One read, “NBC STARS TO MERGE DATELINE INVESTIGATES.” The couple met at NBC before Roberts later moved to ABC. 

“Wow! It’s been 28 years,” she wrote in the caption of the celebratory post.

“Beginning with a few jitters, great excitement and hearts brimming with hope, we embarked on this journey. And it has been one great adventure. This last year has taught us to cherish each moment. You are mine…I am yours. And where you are, I am too. Happy anniversary my dearest. Let’s keep making memories @alroker.”  

Many of the couple’s friends and colleagues congratulated them, including Kenan Thompson, Octavia Spencer, Ally Love, Holly Robinson Peete, Audra McDonald and Lara Spencer.

Former Today show host Katie Couric wrote, “Cute couple alert!!!” on Roberts' post, prompting the anchor to respond with four purple heart emoji.

“Without her I wouldn’t be here,” he said in January, referring to a time last fall when he was initially diagnosed with blood clots that moved from his leg to his lungs. Roker was hospitalized twice at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center for nearly two weeks at a time.

In the mornings, "sometimes there's a little card next to the coffee maker that might say something encouraging or sweet or impish or fun," she said. "When I travel, I open my suitcase and I find one or two notes in there that he's slipped in, or in my purse. 'Have a great day. I'm thinking of you.' Or an Emily Dickinson sonnet or something," Roberts shared.

"And I'm just like, 'Oh my gosh.' It just touches me. And he thinks that way all the time. He's a real romantic," she added.
