He added a few stylish touches including a black beret, purple tie and black scarf.

The star, 68, made his return to Today on January 6 after taking a two-month hiatus to recover from the health scare. "I'm blessed to be alive," he declared in a recent interview, noting he lost "half" his blood during the ordeal.

His wife, Deborah Roberts, 62, revealed on the show that things were even worse than he let on, as docs also had to resection the colon, take out his gall bladder and treat two ulcers.
