Rob Marciano has made great use of his new free time over the weekend ever since announcing he would be taking a step back from Good Morning America Weekends this September.

The 55-year-old TV meteorologist shared on social media that he was devoting his weekend to celebrating his daughter Madelynn's 12th birthday and posted photos from the bee-themed celebration.

He was joined in photos by Madelynn and his five-year-old son Mason and sweetly wrote: "My sweet, silly, creative little girl is now 12 years old! Happy Bee Day Madelynn!"
