NEW YORK -- Her dad is usually the one on television, but Chris Holcomb's daughter got a few seconds in the spotlight Friday with NBC's Matt Lauer and Al Roker.

Like so many other TODAY show fans, Claire Holcomb carried a homemade sign to Rockefeller Plaza Friday on a birthday trip to the Big Apple with her mom, aunt and grandmother. Her sign read "My dad is the NBC weatherman 11Alive Atlanta."
Chris casually mentioned it during Karyn and Ted's talkback with Matt on what's coming up on the TODAY show.

Matt didn't miss a beat and helped pull the 13-year-old Greater Atlanta Christian School student out of the crowd, so everyone could see her back home on 11Alive News Today.
The rest of America got to see Claire a little later when Al Roker interviewed her on the plaza during the TODAY show. She even got in a quick "Hi Dad!"

Afterwards, the whole family got to go inside the studio and watch the show live from the set as a surprise.
