The pair have been hosting the show together for many years and are both respected journalists and storytellers, balancing their own projects outside of the show, too.

They are always there for each other during special milestones, and earlier in the year George had the sweetest thing to say about his co-star, revealing what he really thought of her.

Ali Wentworth's husband said: "Robin is the heart of GMA. She has a special connection to the audience, and all of us. I'm always feeling, if I could be half the woman she is... and I don't think anyone comes close, always bringing endless energy and two dazzling decades of dancing."

George Stephanopoulos recently branded Robin Roberts "the heart of GMA"

George joined GMA in 2009 after replacing Diane Sawyer on the popular show. Robin and George were then joined by Michael in 2016, who left Live alongside Kelly Ripa to go full-time on the program.

Unlike Robin, George rarely gives interviews about himself – preferring to be the one to ask the questions.

The star's wife, Ali, often shares snippets of their personal life on social media though, along with family photos of their two daughters, Harper and Elliott.
