The GMA host married her long-time partner, Amber Laign, on September 8 during a lavish ceremony at their Connecticut home

The happy couple then jetted off to the tropical destination of Curacao where they honeymooned.

While there, Robin and Amber made a discovery which they couldn't wait to share with fans because it was so unexpected. 

Marveling at coincidence, Robin took to Instagram with a pair of photos from their vacation in which they were posing with some fellow honeymooners. 

She wrote: "What a small world! We met Paige & Andrew who also got married on Sept 8…in CT very near our wedding venue…and we also happened to choose the same resort for our honeymoons!!"

She continued: "Neither of us got to stay in the honeymoon suite. Swipe and you’ll see the reason why. Ed & Phyllis chose it to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary! #couplegoals."

Fans loved Robin's post, with many sending congratulatory messages and others writing: "This is terrific. Thanks for sharing and more thanks for being absolutely authentic," and, "Awesome. Wishing you both all the happiness in the world."

Robin and Amber have been together for 18 years

On their 15th anniversary of that date, Robin penned a sweet message to Amber which read: "15 years ago I met you for drinks on a blind date that both you and I tried to cancel...twice. Your grace caught my eye right away and the ease of the evening continued to flow through dinner. 

"You left for Tahiti the following day and during that time apart I grew this feeling inside of me that still, is very present today... butterflies. Having you by my side is a gift as we continue to navigate this thing called life.
