It turned into a family affair when his wife, Lindsay Czarniak, and their seven-year-old son, Dell, got their ears pierced as well. 

‘She convinced us all to do it. A family that pierces together stays together. That’s the saying right???’ Melvin wrote on Instagram, where he shared photos of their new ear piercings. 

The broadcast journalist’s co-stars got a kick out of the sweet story, with Savannah Guthrie asking: ‘Wow, so are you going to keep it?’

Melvin hesitated before answering, ‘Well, I don’t think… we’ll see.’

Al Roker pointed out that he already went through with the pain of getting the piercing, so he might as well keep it. 

‘If you did all that, what the heck?’ he said.   

Guthrie, who has a total of ear piercings, including one she got with Gwyneth Paltrow, joked: ‘You know me, I think you should have multiple piercings.’ 

‘How do you know he doesn’t?’ Roker teased.   

‘No, no, no, this is it,’ Melvin clarified. ‘This is the only piercing.’

Roker continued to poke fun at the doting dad, saying: ‘Why don’t you get an eyepatch and a parrot? It’d be fantastic.’

Defense: 'I'm not the ear-piercing kind of guy,' he insisted. 'It's not my bag, but when your daughter asks you to do something and she looks at you...'

The segment included footage of Melvin getting his ear pierced, which was filmed by his wife. The Today hosts were so invested in the story, they had Czarniak join the show via video chat.  

‘Oh come on!’ Melvin groaned. 

Czarniak, who seems to be a fan of the look, asked: ‘Doesn’t he look cool?’

The mother of two admitted she was ‘floored’ by the turn of events, saying: ‘It was such an organic moment, and it was really cool to have everyone do it together — but quite shocking.’  

Melvin reiterated: ‘I’m not the ear-piercing kind of guy. It’s not my bag, but when your daughter asks you to do something and she looks at you…’

‘I can’t wait till about 15 years from now and Sibby asks for that Mercedes,’ Roker joked.
