The co-anchors’ affair made headlines the previous month.

When Holmes and Robach exited the network in January, ABC News President Kim Godwin called the pair a “distraction” in an all-staff email.

The co-anchors were both married to other people when news broke of their relationship in November 2022.

Robach was in the process of divorcing her husband Andrew Shue at the time, which was made final in March.

The couple have left their previous marriages and are still an item.

Holmes filed for divorce in December 2022 after “blindsid(ing)” wife Marilee Fiebig, and the former couple now co-parent 10-year-old daughter Sabine.

Meanwhile, Holmes and Robach appear to still be going strong, as they have been recently photographed making a PDA-filled errands run, competing in the NYC Half Marathon together and canoodling on tropical vacations.

An insider told Page Six in March that they have been “aggressively pitching” a new project to the producers of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and trying to “sell their chemistry.”
