After TODAY Hoda Kotb told Kelly that Bob “always wanted to catch the first flight home” after a show to be with her, the widow began to cry.

“It’s also very special that every time he’s out of town, he’s always going to try… he’s going to work hard,” Kelly said.

“He always likes to sleep in it, but when he’s away, he always tries, he’ll go to bed at 2 and then wake up at 4 so he can be on the flight at 6 a.m. so he can come home just so we can spend time together.”

As Kelly recalled the indelible memory of her late husband, the presenter of The Today Show became emotional as she wiped tears from her eyes.

Kelly continued: “He values ​​every second that we’ve had together, so that’s why, you know, this is heartbreaking.

“But at the same time, I know that every second we have together is made the most of.”

The grieving widow added that there was “nothing left to say and nothing left on the table.”


Earlier in the interview, Kelly said her warm love and support for her and Bob helped her get through a difficult time.

Noting that the late comedian was known for making the people in her life feel special, she said: “Whoever he met and even spent time with, he told them that he loves them endlessly and tirelessly. And that’s his whole message.

“If you know Bob, and he loves you, you know it. Never, ever have a doubt in your mind.”


Kelly also shared about her last conversation with Bob.

She said, “I think I said, ‘I love you dearly,’ and he said, ‘I love you endlessly.'”

“I said, ‘I can’t wait to see you tomorrow.’ And then, you know, it’s all just–it’s all just love.”

Also in the interview, Kelly revealed how she and Bob met and fell in love.


She shared that he reached out to a mutual friend after he saw her on Instagram, although Kelly was hesitant to start talking due to their age gap.

However, they became “inseparable” after meeting face-to-face for the first time in a long time.

Kelly said: “From the first date, we knew it was understandable. So it happened immediately.

“We knew it was something different and unique.”

After saying she was “lucky” to meet Bob, Kelly explained, “Because people were like, ‘Oh. OH. You know, you’ve been robbed. And that’s not fair. “

“And I know it’s not fair, but at the same time I have to become the person in his life that has been with him for almost six years.”

She added: “I got to be the person who went through this amazing journey with him.”

Kelly and Bob began dating in 2015, while the couple married in 2018.
