Michael Strahan kept fans guessing when he shared a new update on social media during his break from GMA. The star took to Instagram on Wednesday with a snapshot which immediately sparked a reaction from fans.

Michael's posted a stunning image of the view from his location and it was so beautiful his followers were eager to find out where he was. "Full moon tonight," he wrote. "So bright it looks like the sun."

Sure enough, at first glance anyone would be forgiven for thinking it was the sky in the middle of a sunny day.

 Fans asked: "Michael, I'm missing you on GMA. When are you coming back. You truly are a missed man," and, "Where are you? It's beautiful," while a third suggested he may be in the Bahamas.

Michael has been off GMA since Monday 27 March, and has been subbed by some well-known faces during his absence.

 Michael has been hosting GMA since 2016 and has been a fan favorite on the show ever since. But he's also got many other projects away from the show, including his own skincare and clothing brand

In addition, he's a dad-of-four, and he's incredibly close to all of his children. He shares his twin daughters Isabella and Sophia, 18, with his ex-wife Jean Muggli, and his two older children, daughter Tanita, 30, and son Michael Jr., 27, who he shares with his first wife, Wanda Hutchins. 

Michael previously opened up about fatherhood during an interview with People. He said: "My kids give me strength. I love being with the kids. To me, it's all about family, now more than anything."

As well as his four biological children, Michael is also a doting stepfather to his first wife, Wanda's son Dorian, who often features in family photos with the rest of Michael's children.
