Holmes and Robach were known on TV for their daytime job and friendship which they would often talk about. While she started working on their GMA show in 2012, he joined two years later. The duo was said to have a close-knit relationship such that they often went on double dates with their spouses, while Robach’s daughters would babysit Holmes’ kids. 

Rumors about their affair started making rounds within their franchise in 2017, and according to insiders, fellow star Robin Roberts tried interrogating Holmes and he denied it. By March 2022, it became glaring that the duo was a thing. They had been training for the New York Half Marathon when it became clearer. 

Holmes, 45, and Robach, 49, hung out at many bars around ABC’s headquarters. In August, the duo reportedly got separated from their spouses. Robach’s husband is Melrose Place star, Andrew Shue. She had her two daughters with ex-husband and MLB alum Tim McIntosh.  

How Their Affair Unraveled 

Robach and Holmes seemingly went public with their affair in November as they trained for the race and enjoyed each other’s company. The pair went on a romantic weekend getaway. During the brief vacation, Holmes was photographed grabbing Robach’s butt. Things went south from there, as they returned to work seeming unbothered. ABC would later pull them off the air early in December as the franchise commenced investigations on their affair and the possibility that they broke workplace rules.
