What does 'tearing up' below mean?

Roughly 90 minutes after Mr. Roker and Mr. Melvin spoke, Ms. Kelly opened her 9 a.m. show by saying, “I’m Megyn Kelly and I want to begin with two words — I’m sorry.” Tearing up, the host said she was “listening and learning,” before sitting with two black panelists, Roland Martin and Amy Holmes, who lectured her on the brutally racist history of blackface.
