Robin Roberts made her much-anticipated return to “Good Morning America” Wednesday, and we couldn’t be happier. She returned to the morning show after being off the air nearly six months. Roberts had taken a leave of absence to undergo a bone marrow transplant and recover from a serious illness.
The show’s producers emphasized that they were taking their cues from Robin every step of the way, and she has said the same thing in interviews. She’s returning now, they said, only because her doctors say she is ready.
On Tuesday night, Robin had a quiet dinner at home with her sisters, one of whom was her bone marrow donor. “We laughed and told old family stories,” she said in an early morning text message. “This is a wonderful new chapter for all of us.”
The ‘GMA’ anchor got a warm welcome back from Hollywood in the clip above.
Welcome back Robin, you were missed!
