Lauer and Roque have been married for 19 years.

Matt Lauer's estranged wife Annette Roque was spotted for the first time since her disgraced husband was sacked by NBC, as Roque's father told a reporter that their marriage is over.

"Sunday Today" host Willie Geist and "Today" anchors Megyn Kelly and Hoda Kotb have also been rumored to be in the running.

After he was sacked from NBC for decades of alleged sexual harassment, the veteran journalist said he was committed to making "soul searching" his new "full-time job". "This would be clean slate". While the reporter has been seen in Sag Harbor with his wedding band still on, his wife Annette Roque has been recently spotted without her wedding ring.

The Dutch-born mother-of-three was spotted not wearing her wedding ring as she dropped off her children at school.

Another "Today" staffer told the mag that most workers inside Rockefeller Center are heartbroken and torn between the colleague they knew and the Lauer described by his accusers. He told DailyMailTV, "I have no words for her husband".

Roque had originally filed for divorce from Lauer in 2006 before dropping it shortly afterwards. Since then multiple women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.

The former Today host made a statement last week where he conceded "some" of the accusations against him were true, leaving him feeling "embarrassed and ashamed".

"There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions", he continued. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. "I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly. As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC", he said in a statement. Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I'm committed to beginning that effort.

Reps for I, Tonya did not comment on whether they had considered removing Lauer from the film in a fashion similar to that of All the Money in the World, in which Kevin Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer.
