Bob Saget's widow Kelly Rizzo was overcome by emotion while speaking about her late husband in her first televised interview since his death via the "Today Show".

The 42-year-old journalist was overcome by emotion as she described her late husband as 'the best man I've ever known.'


Hoda Kotb asked what Saget was like off the stage when he was around friends and family. 

According to Rizzo, his warm public persona wasn't an act at all, and he was 'still the same' no matter whom he was with.

'He was there to just enjoy life, and he just wanted to make people feel good. I mean, if we went to a restaurant, he would talk to all of the waiters, the waitresses, he knew all the hosts. Everybody knew him and loved him.

'And his constant message was, "Just treat everybody with kindness."Because he had gone through so much in his life and he knew how hard life could be, and so he always was just so kind and loving to everybody.'

Rizzo's voice began to crack and she reached up to dab her wet eyes as she struggled to finish her thought.

She continued,'He was just the best man I’ve ever known in my life. He was just so kind and so wonderful, and everybody that was in his life knew it. And even anybody that would just casually meet him was like, "Wow, this is a special guy."'
