Matt Lauer is reportedly ''bending over backwards'' to give Annette Roque everything she wants in their divorce settlement.

The 60-year-old TV star - whose contract with NBC was terminated in November amid a string of sexual harassment allegations - has been keen to make amends with his soon-to-be ex-wife and the duo are now said to be getting along amicably as they move towards finalising their divorce.

A source close to the couple - who have kids Jack, 17, Romy, 14, and Thijs, 11 - told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: ''Things really have settled down. Matt and Annette are getting on and they're both spending time with their kids. They hope to settle the divorce very soon.''

Matt has already reportedly agreed to pay Annette up to $20 million, although it's still unclear as to which of them will keep their 12-bedroom home.

In April, Matt claimed he'd tried to ''protect'' his family from ''embarrassment'' by staying silent about allegations of sexual misconduct.

The former 'Today' host admitted he had ''acted inappropriately'', but he also insisted that many of the allegations made against him are ''absolutely false''.

He said in a statement: ''I have made no public comments on the many false stories from anonymous or biased sources that have been reported about me over these past several months. I remained silent in an attempt to protect my family from further embarrassment and to restore a small degree of the privacy they have lost.

''But defending my family now requires me to speak up. I fully acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC. However I want to make it perfectly clear that any allegations or reports of coercive, aggressive or abusive actions on my part, at any time, are absolutely false.''
