The news is made even more special since Nick, who is the youngest of Al’s three children, is “somewhere on the (autism) spectrum and maybe obsessive-compulsive,” the TV star previously told Guideposts magazine.

At the time Al added: “But those labels can be frustrating; they don’t begin to describe who Nick really is.”
Al doesn’t deny it can sometimes be hard but that he is continuously admiring his youngest.
“Do I get frustrated with my son sometimes? You bet,” Al added. “But then I remember my dad, how understanding he was. And Deborah reminds me that I have to show my son not only that I love him but that I like him as well. More than that, I admire him.”
