More than what you see at first glance? Amy Robach and Andrew Shue had an apparently healthy marriage before the TV reporter was spotted socializing with her Good morning America coanker T. J. Holmes.
Robach and Shue married in 2010, two years after her divorce from Tim McIntosh. The former couple, who were married from 1996 to 2008, welcomed daughters Ava (born 2002) and Analise (born 2006) before separating.
The Melrose place alum, for his part, became a father after the birth of son Nate in 1997. Shue and his ex-wife Jennifer Hageney also expanded their family with sons Aidan (born 1999) and Wyatt (born 2004). They divorced in 2008.
Over the years, Robach and Shue have provided a glimpse into their blended family.
“We eat together at least five evenings a week. And we spend one-on-one time with each child. It really changes the relationship. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, but it’s worth it,” he said exclusively Our Weeklyj in 2017.
The former NBC correspondent noted at the time that they try to teach their children about their blessings. “We spend money on experiences and not on material things. Those things can be forgotten,” she added. “Seeing a Broadway show with my girls for Christmas instead of buying them clothes turned out to be one of the most meaningful ways to spend my money and time. Memories cannot be broken or returned.”
According to the couple, combining their children into one large brood taught them important parenting lessons.
“Boys stink. I’ve been the hygiene police, dealing with showers and things like that. But there’s a sweetness I get from the boys that I don’t get from my daughters, funnily enough,” Robach continued. “It is very nice to see them become gentlemen. Wyatt will open the door and ask, “Amy, can I take that from you?” My daughters throw their backpacks at me.”
The Wonder Years alum praised his wife for raising “strong-willed” daughters, tellingly Us at the time, “I was like ‘Oh they’re never going to fight’ but their feisty and I like that. They always challenge me. I remember the first time I met Ava, she challenged me to a race. It’s not typically like, “We’re going to do girly stuff.” It was nice to have both sides.”
In November 2022, Robach raised eyebrows when she was photographed holding hands with Holmes during her wedding to Shue. The native of Arkansas, for his part, is married to Marilee Fiebig since 2010. According to photos obtained by the Daily mailthe colleagues had several outings in November and in an instant, Holmes playfully touched Robach’s backside.
Robach and Shue did not comment on the surprising news at the time.
