Fans adore watching their adventures on social media, from their travels to their trips out with their rescue dog Lukas.

One of the reasons the Good Morning America co-anchor believes their relationship is so strong is a result of their living situation – which sees them living apart for most of the week.

The 60-year-old previously opened up about her life with her partner during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2014.

"I'm reading in the book that you don't live together because you get up at 3am," Ellen told Robin, in reference to her book, Everybody's Got Something, that was released that year.

Weekends are when the couple spend quality time together, and they have a beautiful home to enjoy. The stunning property boasts everything from a vast living room to a sprawling garden, complete with an outdoor pool.

Robin and Amber also go away a lot and have enjoyed several staycations this year, including to Key West – a place that is close to both of their hearts.

The TV star went away with her partner to Key West in June, and shared several photos of their adventures on social media, describing it as their "happy place".
