So it came as a surprise to fans on Thursday, when a personal photo of T.J. was shared by the star on his Instagram - and it needs to be seen, to be believed.
T.J. took a walk down memory lane, and posted a throwback photo of himself as a child and everything from his hair to his outfit was adorable.
In the image, T.J. was sitting in on a chair in a library, he wore a cheeky grin as he looked at the camera and in place of the buzzcut he now sports was a mass of curly hair.
He captioned the photo: "#throwbackthursday #tinyTJ #stuffyouintheattic."
Had T.J.'s comments been enabled, fans would have inundated him with messages about the photo, and his love life too.
Because it's been almost a year since, T.J. and Amy Robach's romance was made public after they were photographed on a PDA packed Thanksgiving vacation.
Amy and Andrew's divorce has been finalized and T.J.'s is reportedly still with the courts.
The couple were ultimately let go from their co-hosting positions with GMA3, leaving Dr. Jennifer Ashton to find new anchors to sit alongside her.
The decision wasn't one made lightly and after weeks of deliberation, the network released a statement that read: "After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes about different options, we all agreed it's best for everyone that they move on from ABC News. We recognize their talent and commitment over the years and are thankful for their contributions."
Amy and T.J. have been spotted on several occasions in New York and on vacation, proving their romance is still going strong, but they're yet to reveal if they have plans to return to TV.
Currently, they're training for the New York Marathon on November 5, and broke their social media silence to share their plans. Ironically, they were bonding over marathon training when their relationship turned from platonic to romantic.
Neither are yet to publicly address their romance, but T.J.'s wife - who he shares a daughter, Sabine, 10, with - released a statement in January through her attorney, detailing her upset at the way he conducted his affair.
Stephanie Lehman's statement read: "During the holiday season and in light of the challenging times, Marilee's sole focus has remained on the overall best interest of her 9-year-old daughter.
"To that end T.J.'s lawyer and I have been working together to move their divorce forward privately, expeditiously and as amicably as possible."
She spoke out against T.J.'s conduct regarding the matter, adding: "Notwithstanding, we continue to be disappointed by T.J's lack of discretion, respect and sensitivity toward Marilee and the party's daughter.
"Marilee has been touched by the outpouring of support and looks forward to a new beginning in this new year."
