“They have a very cosy relationship on air, but that is what is expected. 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.”
Reps for Holmes and Robach didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Meanwhile, new photos obtained by the Daily Mail show Robach and Holmes recently very close to each other – and at one point even holding hands – during various outings in upstate New York and around the city.
Two weeks before Thanksgiving, the GMA co-anchors went on a getaway to a remote cottage where Holmes, 45, was seen grabbing Robach’s rear as she leaned into the boot of a car, as shown in the photos.
Insiders also told the Daily Mail that ABC staff were “buzzing about the intimacy between them” while they were in England in June for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Robach, 49, has restricted comments on her Instagram account as eagle-eyed fans noticed she not only ditched her wedding ring but also stopped posting photos of her husband, former Melrose Place actor Andrew Shue. Meanwhile, Holmes’ Instagram appears to have been deactivated.
Sources told Daily Mail that Robach and her husband, as well as Holmes and his wife, Marilee Fiebig, went their separate ways in August.
Robach and Holmes have been close friends for years and have even previously gone out on double dates with their partners.
They also both took part in the NYC half marathon in March.
