Amy Robach has made her return to Instagram following a period of absence.
The former anchor of “GMA3: What You Need to Know” has posted on the platform for the first time since deactivating her account and later reactivating it after her relationship with former co-anchor T.J. Holmes became public knowledge.

She shared a black-and-white close-up photograph featuring two pairs of matching running shoes. Accompanying the image was the caption: “#nycmarathon2023 🏃🏾♂️🏃♀️”
Robach, a former ABC News correspondent, and Holmes, her ex-co-anchor, appear to be hinting at their joint preparation for an upcoming race. Their shared love for running has deepened their connection. Earlier this year, they participated in the NYC Half Marathon, adding another 13.1 miles to their journey towards the renowned 26.2-mile jog across New York City’s five boroughs.
Back in November, the seasoned news personalities caught the public’s attention when they were seen holding hands in a car during a vacation in upstate New York and appearing cozy at a bar in New York City.
During that time, both Robach, aged 50, and Holmes, aged 46, were still married to their respective partners, having tied the knot just a month apart in early 2010. Robach is legally married to actor Andrew Shue, aged 56; however, there is belief that they have been separated since the summer of 2022. In a parallel manner, Holmes and his former spouse, 45-year-old attorney Marilee Fiebig, filed for divorce in December 2022, shortly after news of his and Robach’s relationship surfaced.

In January, PEOPLE magazine confirmed that both journalists would be departing from their roles at ABC due to an internal investigation into their romantic involvement.
In December, ABC News president Kim Godwin addressed the situation in a memo to the network’s employees, stating that Robach and Holmes would be “off-air pending the completion of an internal review,” and that a rotation of anchors would fill in on the program.
An ABC spokesperson provided a statement, saying, “After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes about different options, we all agreed it’s best for everyone that they move on from ABC News. We recognize their talent and commitment over the years and are thankful for their contributions.”
A week after the announcement of their departure, a source told PEOPLE that the former co-anchors were handling the situation well.
“They are truly in love and remain in touch with colleagues from the show,” the source shared. “They’re not overly worried about finding new employment immediately. They understand that things need to settle down a bit before pursuing new opportunities. There’s still much in motion.”
