George Stephanopoulos' family away from his work at Good Morning America looks like it's a lot of fun! 

The GMA co-anchor is married to Ali Wentworth, who often leaves fans in stitches with her quick wit, both on the TV and online. 

What's more, it appears that her lookalike mom is just as joyful - as a recent photo proved.

Ali took to Instagram over the weekend to share a joyful picture of her beloved mother, Muffie Cabot, 87, enjoying a cocktail with her daughter outside in the New York City sun. 

"My Mom and I like to reenact scenes from Sex in the city," Ali wrote in the caption. The fun photo left fans all saying the same thing - about just how fun Muffie looks to be around.

"Now this is living! Your mom seems so cool," one wrote, while another remarked: "Love her smile - her spirit shines through!" A third added: "This gives me life!!" 

The 87-year-old has had quite the life too. Born Mabel "Muffie" Wentworth Brandon Cabot, she was an American heiress and socialite.

What's more, during the 1980s she served as social secretary to Nancy Reagan. Ali grew up in Washington D.C. - the very place she met her now-husband, George. 

The couple went on to welcome two daughters, Elliott, 21, and Harper, 17. They moved their family to NYC over a decade ago when George accepted a job as a co-anchor at Good Morning America

Speaking to HELLO! at the 33rd Annual Colleagues Spring Luncheon and Oscar de la Renta Fashion Show on Tuesday April 25, Ali even joked that she doesn't want her husband as a guest, quipping: "I am not sure what we would talk about!" 

Ali previously gave an insight into their family dynamics during an interview in 2016. Chatting to Harry Connick Jr, she said: "I have two girls. George is the only guy in the house. For some reason, he gets beat up constantly.

He is always wrong. He is an idiot. He is a loser, but in a loving way." Like all teenagers, Ali and George's children struggled during the pandemic and in 2020 the author opened up about their experience.

Talking to Shondaland, she said: "For my own teenagers, I'd say the wrench is the uncertainty of everything. There's no routine. I can't soothe by saying, 'Well, this will be over soon.'" 

While George and Ali prefer to keep their daughters out of the spotlight, Elliott and Harper made a rare public appearance at the end of March as they stepped out in New York City with their famous parents to attend the Pretty Baby premiere. George and Ali's production company, Bedbyeight, had produced the documentary, and so it was a family affair.
