"This is one of the best gifts I've ever gotten in my life," he said as he held up the picture to the camera.

George has been working at GMA since 2009 after he was offered Diane Sawyer's job on the popular morning news show.

The new job meant that the father-of-two faced a big change for his family, who were living in Washington D.C. at the time.
