Gio shared the snap to Instagram, writing: “A night of celebrating friendship, love, and all that’s to come in 2023. Happy weekend to you and yours!”

“Such a wonderful night,” Robin wrote in response on the social media platform.

She continued: “We appreciated the wedding advice!” and followed her comment with a winking and kissing emoji.

Sam Champion also got in on the fun, leaving heart-eye emoji and hearts as a comment on the photo.

Ginger Zee also stopped by to leave some love: “Great gang,” with a heart-eye emoji.

Dr Jen Ashton left her thoughts on the photo as well: “What a crew,” she wrote, adding a fire emoji.

Robin and Amber confirmed their engagement earlier in January after dating for nearly two decades.

The pair will tie the knot later in 2023.

STRAHAN’S STAR

Meanwhile, Robin called out GMA co-star Michael Strahan during Tuesday’s show while celebrating his latest achievement.

Michael was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Robin attended the ceremony to support him.

Speaking about the special moment on Tuesday’s broadcast as footage played out, Robin joked: “Look at him! People are gonna be walking all over him!”

As the audience and crew members laughed at her joke, Robin continued: “We are so proud. Our own Michael Strahan yesterday got that star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“He is no stranger to making history and he did so with his once-in-a-lifetime achievement… the first person to get a star in the sports entertainment category,” she continued.

“Michael, you have achieved so much in your career, and can I say it was humbling to be there and see the mosaic of people that you brought together.

“And to have your mama, she was beaming, what did that moment mean to you, Michael?” Robin asked.

He replied: “It means the world. To have you there, to have my mom there, to have my kids there.

“To see them proud is all that I need because you know we wake up, we do what we do, I particularly don’t think about awards or anything like this.

“But this is definitely an incredible honor,” he added, before joking: “And I will walk over myself!”

ROBIN REMEMBERS

Earlier this week, Robin shared a throwback photo from her time working as a reporter for ESPN.

Roberts worked at ESPN for 15 years and famously worked her way up to co-anchoring the 6pm edition of SportsCenter.

In a tweet on Saturday, an NBA Twitter account reposted Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis’ rendition of the national anthem sung 30 years ago to the day.

The accompanying video clip featured Robin commenting on ESPN’s coverage of Lewis’ rendition of the national anthem.

The Good Morning America anchor responded to the tweet: “30 years ago? I remember this like it was yesterday!”

Many of her fans have responded all saying the same thing.

“We remember it now that we’re seeing it. That was too funny. No one could keep a straight face. Thanks for the laugh.
Continued Blessings,” one person tweeted.

“Still makes me giggle!,” wrote another.

“30 years later, I’m still cracking up,” someone else said.

The throwback comes as fans missed Roberts on the news desk in New York on Monday.

Other GMA co-stars chimed in on the post, including Sam Champion and Ginger Zee
