George Stephanopoulos rarely posts on social media, but made the exception this weekend - and for a very special reason. 

The Good Morning America co-anchor took to Instagram to pay tribute to his youngest daughter Harper, 17, on her graduation day. 

Sharing a rare photo of himself with his daughter on the special day, George penned: "Happy graduation day to my youngest," alongside a heart emoji.

George's wife, Ali Wentworth, was equally proud, sharing several photos from the big day on her own Instagram page. 

She wrote: "The baby daughter is launched! A perpetually optimistic, joyful, generous, empathetic, fun-loving, and wise human is spreading her wings! Bursting with love and pride! P.S. You know she is my daughter because she ran out after she graduated and got an ice cream cone across the street."

George's GMA co-stars, including Robin Roberts, Michael Strahan and Ginger Zee all shared messages of support following Harper's achievement. "Congratulations!!" Michael wrote, alongside a clapping hand emoji, while Robin penned: "Soo sweet. Congrats to your lovely baby girl." Ginger simply responded with a love heart emoji. 

Fans also sent messages to the family. "Congratulations to her! It takes a lot of hard work to make it to this point, and she (plus Mom and Dad!) should be very proud!," one wrote, while another remarked: "Congratulations Harper, watch out world!"

Elliott and Harper both have strong bonds with their parents, with Ali sharing an insight into their relationship in the past. 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."
