Roker told PEOPLE earlier this year that Roberts was his main support during his health scare last fall.

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

In PEOPLE’s first love issue of 2021, Roberts shared that her husband is a master of romantic gestures. “He does things like sprinkle little love messages, little congratulations throughout my life,” she said then in an interview with Zoom.

In the morning, “sometimes there’s a little card next to the coffee machine that might say something encouraging or sweet or mischievous or fun,” she said. “When I travel, I open my suitcase and there I find one or two notes that he slipped in or in my purse. ‘Have a nice day. I’m thinking of you.’ Or an Emily Dickinson sonnet or something,” Roberts said.

“And I’m just like, ‘Oh my God.’ It just touches me. And he thinks like that all the time. He’s a real romantic,” she added.
