Matt Lauer is slowly inching his way back into the public eye.

Ever since being abruptly fired from the Today show last November due to alleged inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace, the 60-year-old journalist has been living a private life in the Hamptons.

"Matt is completely aware he has not been forgiven for his sexual misconduct, and certainly all has not been forgotten. He has kept a very low profile not only for himself but for the sake of his family," a source told ET on Friday. "He realizes the utter embarrassment he has caused everyone involved."

"He also knows he might never be completely pardoned for his behavior, so he's finally come to terms with the fact he needs to start stepping out in public," the source added. "He is beginning to inch his way back into society. He still fears the endless backlash, but also knows he can't hide forever."

  Did You Know Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck Are Still Married? Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck might’ve separated in 2015, filing to end their decade-long union, but it turns out they’re still legally married. And their divorce might be dismissed. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, LA County Superior Court told Garner and Affleck they should file and enter their final judgment or risk having their divorce request revoked.

Another reason Lauer had been staying under the radar up until now was due to the fact that he is trying to finalize his divorce from his estranged wife, Annette Roque, whom he shares three kids with -- Jack, 17, Romy, 14, and Thijs, 11.

"Matt and Annette's divorce is finally almost complete," the source said. "Sadly, their divorce has been filled with contention. They are both very ready for it to be over, but the challenge is that he and Annette have disagreed throughout the entire process."

At the moment, Lauer -- who currently still resides in the Hamptons -- is just trying to stay focused on his family.

"Matt's plans for the summer are to spend quality time traveling with his children," the source said. "He is focusing on preserving his relationship with his children."

Earlier this month, in a rare public sighting, Lauer was spotted paddleboarding in Sag Harbor, New York, and appeared to be in good spirits. The sighting came just a few weeks after Lauer gave his first interview since since he was fired from the Today show.
