Alongside her work on GMA, Robin has her own production company, Rock 'n Robin TV, which last week premiered a special documentary, Wakanda Forever, which focused on the worldwide impact of Black Panther, and on the legacy of the late actor, Chadwick Boseman.

As a result of her hectic schedule, Robin has been taking some time off GMA, having missed several shows last week, and the first two of this week.

Robin isn't the only star missing from the news desk this week either, as Michael Strahan has also been off work.

Instead, George has been joined by GMA3 co-anchors T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach.

While Robin has kept a low profile on social media this week, it's likely that she will be returning in the next few days.

Away from work, Robin splits her time between Manhattan and Connecticut, where she shares a home with long-term partner Amber.

This year has been testing for the couple, as Amber was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of 2021 and Robin announced the news to her fans at the beginning of this year.

She has since been giving updates on social media every now and then on Amber's progress, and has been inundated with support from her loyal followers.

The couple met on a blind date in 2005 set-up by mutual friends. They kept their relationship private until 2013, and have been together ever since.

I am grateful to God, my doctors and nurses for my restored good health. I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life."

She also said: "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time[sic] girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."
