It's been a big year for Roker who took a break from anchor duties to have a second knee replacement surgery--which he said made it more complicated.

"This one is a little more complicated because it's what they call a revision; it was a replacement of a replacement, so they had to take stuff out, put stuff in, so it was a bit of a bear," Roker revealed at the time. "So we've just been kind of hanging out. Chilling out, not doing anything — which I know, a lot of people find hard to believe, but in fact, that is the case."

Roker has been anxiously awaiting the birth of his granddaughter since his daughter accidentally revealed the gender to him earlier this year.

"She [texted] me a sonogram picture and I said, 'That baby looks just like you,' and she said, 'Doesn't she?' And then you see the bubbles," Roker told Entertainment Tonight, recalling the incident. "[She goes] 'I'm so sorry!' and I went, 'You had one [job]!' "

He added with a laugh, "I wanted to be surprised."
