Better late than never!
On the Monday, Dec. 14 episode of TODAY, Hoda shared home videos of her daughter Haley Joy baking a chocolate cake and sending Al some sweet messages. "I'm making you a cake, Al Roker. I love you," Haley said in the cute clip.
The only problem? Al's birthday is Aug. 20.
Hoda went on to explain the hilarious mix-up, "There's some newsletter that goes out from the show that said it was your birthday. So I got Haley, we baked a cake...we put on hats, we did a Zoom."
When Hoda and family called Al on Saturday Dec. 12 to wish him happy birthday, he was confused to say the least.
"And Roker's face...I laughed 'cause you looked at us when we were doing the Zoom like, 'What are you talking about?'" Hoda said.
"I didn't want to burst the kids' bubble. They had done such a lovely job," he laughed.
Hoda added that Al's wife "Deborah's face was the best, she was like totally dead-eyed."
"It's the thought that counts," Savannah Guthrie chimed in.
"Al, you are loved, baby," Hoda said.
"So now I'm 67!" Al joked.
