Al Roker Dropped a Shocking Revelation About Lenny Kravitz and 'Today' Fans Are Speechless

Instagram followers of the NBC weather anchor can't believe they are related.

Al Roker is celebrating his cousin Lenny Kravitz and his incredible accomplishment.

On April 7, the Today show weatherman posted a minute-long Instagram video of himself opening a box the Grammy-winning singer sent over. But it wasn’t just regular family mail. Al shared that he was going to try out Lenny’s new oral wellness company Twice. As it turns out, the “Dig In” vocalist has been working on a line for several years after providing free dentistry care in his hometown of Eleuthera, The Bahamas. Among the first folks to test out the toothpastes and other tools was Al, who was excited for his loved one.

“I just got a package from my cuz Lenny Kravitz and his Twice oral hygiene line,” he said in the clip. “All kinds of cool stuff … Thanks, Lenny. I appreciate it! Look at that, from Eleuthera … If I can’t look like Lenny, at least I can have healthy teeth like Lenny.”

In case you’re wondering if Al calls Lenny his cousin as a term of endearment, the answer is no. The NBC meteorologist and the rock star are, indeed, cousins. To be more specific, Al and Lenny are second cousins related through their grandfathers. The TV personalities revealed their familial connection back in 2011, and since then, the two have shared special moments on air.

After seeing Al spread the word about his latest project, Lenny reached out in the Instagram comments section to express his gratitude. “Love ya cuz,” he wrote. What’s more, Al’s wife, Deborah Roberts, was just ecstatic about having Twice in the house. “Can’t wait to sample. If you’ll share. ❤️,” she added.

Al’s followers also dropped in their own messages about Twice. By the sounds of it, some folks have already tried it but were shocked to discover that it was Lenny’s creation. Others were ready to try it themselves. “I didn't know it was Lenny's! This toothpaste is easily my favorite,” one person wrote. “I’m checking it out Al,” a different fan said. “How awesome! Wonderful to provide free dental care for those who need it! ❤️,” another added about the company’s mission, which promises "every purchase of a Twice product helps provide free dentistry to people in need."

But dentistry care aside, there were also a good handful of fans who were simply stunned to hear that Al and Lenny were related in the first place. “I did i NOT know you were cousins?!? 😮,” a follower commented. "That’s a first….did not know that@lennykravitz is your cuz #alroker 👏🏼," another said.
