Al Roker shares pics of daughter Leila meeting baby Sky: ‘I had tears in my eyes’

In the sweet photos, Leila held her niece while she wore a onesie that read "newborn" on it.

Al Roker's daughter Leila had a special moment with her niece Sky.

On Instagram, Al shared some photos of the two meeting each other after his oldest daughter, Courtney, 36, welcomed Sky with her husband, Wes, earlier this month.

"I had tears in my eyes watching #aunt @cleilapatra meeting her #niece Sky Clara for the first time," he captioned the photos.

In one snap, Leila fed Sky a bottle of milk and in another, she adorably held her niece in her arms while she posed for the camera.

On her Instagram stories, Leila posted one of the photos of her holding Sky and wrote, "Welcome baby Sky."

"I love her so much already," the 24-year-old added.

“And then this little girl came into my life. Welcome to the world, Sky Clara Laga. In love all over again,” the dad of three wrote online. “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.”

In the comments, Savannah Guthrie wrote, “OH MY GOODNESS!! Welcome to the world sweet girl! You have the best grandpa in the universe!!”

Willie Geist said, “Welcome to the party, Sky! Congrats to you, Courtney, Wes, Al, and Deborah! 🥂”
