The TV hosts have had a close friendship over the years, having been significant and beloved parts of the morning news fraternity.

The flowers acted as a congratulatory present from Gayle not only for Robin's impressive tenure on GMA, having only recently completed 20 years on the show, but also for the release of her latest book, Brighter By the Day.

The 61-year-old revealed that the book came from learning how to wake up each day feeling positive and believing that things would be good, and was also inspired by her early morning wisdom sessions with her 'glam fam' that she shares on social media.
