GMA’s Robin Roberts finally returns to the show studio after her short break and jokes that she’s “walking on sunshine” despite jet lag.
GOOD Morning America’s Robin Roberts has returned to the New York studio after her trip to New Zealand.
Robin, 62, previously took time off from Good Morning America while going on holiday with partner Amber Laign.
After leaving New Zealand, the GMA presenter returned to the news desk and spoke to co-host George Stephanopoulos, 61, about “her world travels”.
George asked his co-star, “What time zone are you in?”
Robin joked that it’s 2am for her, adding: “But I’m walking on sunshine!”
She shared snaps from her luxurious getaway on her social feed.
The ABC star was candid about how she wanted her followers to “feel like they were with us with no jet lag.”
“So you went with us. It was a great trip. It was something special.”
The TV presenter also revealed in an Instagram video that she was “back on solid ground.”
Before reciting a prayer from her phone, Robin told fans: “We had a wonderful trip to New Zealand.

“We’ve done our best to make you feel like we’re here — minus the jet lag — which is real.”
Unfortunately, the romantic trip to New Zealand was not without incident.
The journey got off to a rocky start when she revealed her flight was forced to take a detour to Honolulu, Hawaii.
Robin uploaded a selfie of herself with Amber while they were out on the beach.
She wrote: “Trying to make the best of a flight being diverted to Honolulu until the Auckland flooding subsides.
“Hope everyone is fine.”
After a slight delay, the couple resumed their journey after saying goodbye to Waikiki Beach.
‘WE LEAVE TODAY’
Last month, the TV personality announced her hiatus from the morning show.
Robin revealed: “After several months of planning, Glam Fam and I are going to New Zealand!”
“We’re leaving today. @e will report from there next week.
“It will be a bit of a challenge for us to put out a daily message and prayer, but you know we are with you in spirit always.”
Robin finished: “Alright get out there and have a blessed day and be a blessing,” before winking at the camera.
During her absence, the GMA co-hosts held the line as they celebrated Jimmy Kimmel’s 20th birthday.
Robin missed out when it was announced that co-hosts Amy Robach and TJ Holmes were officially fired from the show.
The couple had been on a temporary hiatus from their hosting gigs since late last year after their alleged affair was discovered.
ABC executives officially made their decision and announced that Amy and TJ would not be returning to television roles.
