Last August, he posted a picture that showed the back of the car filled up with Nick’s belongings before they took him to university.

He said at the time: “I guess this is happening. Taking the last one to college. So proud of this one.”

Roberts gushed over her son’s achievement.

She said: “After all the hard work. All the discipline. All the dreaming. All the prayers. His moment to soar as come.”

Nick returned home from college to celebrate the holidays with his family in New York.

During the festive season, he was seen decorating the Christmas tree and rustling up Christmas cookies.

Last week, he was also seen cooking in the kitchen with his dad.

Roberts revealed that she would miss his culinary skills in a touching Instagram post.

He had prepared a salad that consisted of assorted leaves, fresh chili, and crumbled cheese.

Meanwhile, Roker was seen concentrating on a piece of meat that was sizzling in the pan.

The culinary-inspired posts brought back memories for fans.

Roker and his son were seen cooking together in videos shared during the pandemic.

They shared more than 60 clips on Instagram and YouTube, keeping fans entertained.

One fan wrote in the comments: “Y’all’s cooking videos got me through Covid! Glad Al is better.”

Another agreed as they said: “We need more cooking videos. It saved me during covid!

 Roberts shared a throwback of herself alongside her kids when they were young.

Fans rushed to send warm words to the matriarch.

She said: “Sometimes a passing glance of a family memory is enough to trigger a smile and a warm heart for the day.

“This old pic did it for me, bringing a ray of sun to a rainy day. These two…”

Instagram fans flooded the comments with kind words about Roberts’ family.

One said: “How precious are those sweet angels? How time flies! Such a beautiful family you & Al share.”

Another posted: “Precious. That sweet time passes so quickly and then they are grown up.

“Nevertheless, they are your babies forever and a day. I know. As a mom myself, I look back and am in awe of my two heartbeats.”

And, a third commenter said the throwback photo must have warmed Roberts’ heart.

They posted: “What precious memories it must bring for you.”
