Fans were quick to comment on the post, with one writing: "So much love for you!" while another wrote: "Sending you both love!" Robin's GMA co-star Ginger Zee added: "Yesss, big smiles."

The 61-year-old recently took time off work to be with Amber during a "challenging" week, which she opened up about ahead of her return to work at the end of June.
