GMA Hosts T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach’s Romantic Relationship Comes To Light

Over the last 24 hours, photos surfaced that showed that Good Morning America anchors, T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach are more than just friends or co-workers.

The Daily Mall published images of Holmes and Robach holding hands during a trip to upstate New York, and later being cozy in a bar in the Big Apple. The outlet reported that Holmes and Robach had their relationship-turn-romantic back in June and had allegedly left their spouses in August.

Just hours after their relationship went public, both T.J. and Amy deactivated their Instagram accounts.  On Thursday, Robach’s husband, former Melrose Place star, Andrew Shue deleted all photos of Robach from his Instagram account.

Page Six earlier reported that Holmes, who had been married to Marilee Fiebig since 2010, had been having an alleged affair. They report that Robach and Holmes started to get close back in March when they were training together for the New York City Half Marathon.

When Holmes was going to join GMA back in 2014, the producers asked Robach what she thought of having him on the show.  Amy shared with PEOPLE : “Hey, we want to bring on a co-anchor. What do you think of T.J. Holmes?’ And I almost fell out of my chair. You couldn’t have picked a better person to ask me what I thought of, because we’ve been trying to figure out a way to work together for literally the last five years.”

As fate would have it, the two were also anchoring today’s GMA 3 where they made no mention of what was going on behind the scenes and in their personal lives.

So, what do you think about T.J and Amy’s relationship being revealed, and how it was made public? Comment below.
