Good Morning America co-anchors T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach allegedly had a months-long affair, which reportedly led to them leaving their respective spouses.
According to Page Six, the pair began their alleged romance in March after growing close while training for the New York City Marathon. Months later, in May, a source says the pair were spotted “canoodling” in bars near the ABC studios in the Big Apple.
“They have a very cozy relationship on air, but that is what is expected,” the source said. “But they were very careful behind the scenes to keep their affair secret. The producers at GMA are shocked to hear they are having an affair.”

“There were rumors they were having an affair about a year ago,” the source told People magazine. “A lot of people believed there might have been some truth to it, because you can see there’s a mutual affection there. But everyone ultimately chalked it up to friendship because they always said they were both happily married.”
The couple have since shut down their Instagram accounts.
