Amy Robach and T. J. Holmes generated dozens of headlines when they went official with their relationship back in 2022 after they left their respective partners for each other.

The pairing were dismissed from their positions with GMA3 due to the negative press and the duo have since launched a podcast where they discuss their lives as well as other hot topics. In the latest episode, Amy opened up about her decision to leave husband Andrew Shue for her co-star.

The 51-year-old explained: "[My] cancer journey played a huge role in my decision. I asked myself, if your cancer came back and you knew you had one year to live, how would you spend it? And it wasn't even close. I would spend it with T.J."

Amy continued: "I have preached, and I've given speeches to breast cancer survivors … and anyone who's gone through anything life-threatening or had anything where you thought you might die, whatever it is. You learn that tomorrow is not guaranteed."

Amy and T.J. are now madly in love

Amy battled breast cancer in 2013, and has been helping to raise awareness and funds for the disease ever since. In November 2022, Amy opened up exclusively to HELLO! about the challenging time in her life, while attending the Estee Lauder Breast Cancer Research Foundation Luncheon in New York City.

"I only found my breast cancer because of Good Morning America," she shared. "I was asked to do a live mammogram in a van in the middle of Times Square. So it was a work assignment that found my cancer so it only felt appropriate to share that then with our viewers."
