Jeannie Gaffigan — wife and writing partner of standup comic Jim Gaffigan — made her first public appearance since having surgery to remove a serious brain tumor.

She was with her husband at Radio City Music Hall in New York for the premiere of Darren Aronofsky's thriller "mother!"

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" swept the Emmys and HBO's "Game of Thrones" came back with a "Best Drama" win during TV's biggest night. But it was director Glenn Weiss who provided the most touching highlight of the night after he pulled off a successful proposal to his girlfriend, Jen Svendsen, as the cameras rolled on-stage.

Gaffigan said it was cool to be out, adding that she's doing well — but not yet at 100 percent.

She had urgent surgery in April after an MRI revealed a large, life-threatening tumor around her brain stem.

The 51-year-old Jim Gaffigan is a popular stand-up comic, and Jeannie Gaffigan both co-writes his material and produces his TV specials. She was also producer and writer on "The Jim Gaffigan Show," which ran for two seasons on the TV Land cable network.

They have five children.
