With Good Morning America the new number one morning news show it was about time the show had a big staff wedding. So why not a gay one? Which is a long way of saying congratulations to GMA's weather anchor Sam Champion and his new fiancé Rubem Robierb. We sincerely hope Rubem takes his future husband's last name!
According to the couple, the pair met through mutual friends in Miami where the Brazlian-born Robierb lives and works as a fine-arts photographer. They plan to get hitched there around New Years Eve. They should totally book Sam Champion to play the reception!
Champion, the first co-host of a network morning television show to publicly identify as gay, actually first let slip that he was engaged in a Times vows column for the wedding of MSNBC Live host Thomas Roberts to Patrick Abner. He is expected to talk about the upcoming nuptials on GMA next Monday. Hopefully he won't pull a Star Jones though, or Anderson Cooper might have something to say.
