TODAY star Craig Melvin has admitted that he felt bad after failing to get his co-star Al Roker a card.
On Tuesday, the anchors exchanged gifts during a Valentine’s Day segment.
Al revealed that he and his castmates played “co-worker cupid” – a game that’s similar to secret Santa.
The hosts had to stay within a budget of $20 and Craig bought Al a French vanilla-scented candle.
Pointing to the weatherman, Craig said: “You’ll enjoy that. You love a candle. You’re the light of this place.”
The anchors also exchanged touching messages, but Craig did not give Al a card.
Craig told viewers: “I feel bad,” after realizing his error but the veteran meteorologist didn’t seem too bothered.
Al was thrilled with the gift that he had received.
Anchor Sheinelle Jones quipped to Craig: “You’re busy” following his slight gaffe.
Meanwhile, Dylan Dreyer rustled up a jar of overnight oats for Craig.

Al gave Sheinelle some cookies that had a human heart painted on them.
Dylan read Sheinelle’s message aloud: “To my rockstar co-host, on this Valentine’s Day, I’m thankful for what we have created on the third hour from Saturday morning to discussions about having kids to today watching you juggle three beautiful boys and a busy career. It’s amazing.”
Craig returned to the show yesterday after he was absent on Monday.
He was at the Super Bowl with his wife Lindsay Czarniak and their two kids.
One snap showed the anchor beaming alongside sports anchor Lindsay, and their kids Delano and Sybil.
Craig and Delano wore matching Kansas City Chiefs jerseys in the sweet family shot.
Donna Kelce, the mother of NFL stars Jason and Travis Kelce, also joined the group.
Chiefs star Travis was on the winning side while Eagles ace Jason came up short in the big game.
Craig posted the snap on Instagram on Sunday and wrote: “The Melvins hanging with Momma Kelce was a weekend highlight for sure here at #superbowl in AZ. She’s pulling for the offense.”
He and his son sang along to Rihanna’s track We Found Love during the pregnant singer‘s half-time performance.
In another clip, Craig and Lindsay’s kids looked around the stadium in awe as confetti fell from the sky.
Last week, Craig and Al got in the Super Bowl spirit as they were on the same team for a football-themed quiz.
They competed against Savannah Guthrie and Sheinelle Jones in a game of Super Bowl trivia.
