"It couldn't possibly have been 25 years ago. Could it?? 25 years of love, laughter, peaks, valleys, discovery, bewilderment, bliss, struggle and all that this journey offers," Roberts wrote alongside a series of throwback photos of herself and Roker on their wedding day.

The two also share daughter Leila, 21, and Roker is dad to daughter Courtney, 33, from his previous marriage to producer Alice Bell.
