Good Morning America Weatherman Sam Champion Marries Partner In NYC

The Good Morning America (GMA) weather man Sam Champion has married his partner, Rubem Robierb, 35 at a ceremony surrounded by friends and family at his New York City appartment.

At 8am, on the show, he was applauded by his colleagues, cast and crew offering all their best, noting how calm he looked- although apparently all his family were at his home, "so I probably should be nervous" he joked, reports People. George Stephanopoulos told him to "remember every second" of the day. Robin Roberts, a colleague and friend also read an Elizabeth Browning poem at the ceremony, which included the 10 minute vows conducted by N.Y. State Supreme Court Justice George J. Silver.

The happy couple were introduced by friends in Miami three years ago and announced their engagement in October. "We met on New Year's and he proposed on New Year's Eve, so we thought let's get married on New Year's Eve. That's going to be the big party," Champion said. "This is the legal moment that we wanted to celebrate with friends and family and loved ones."

On The Road To Recovery: Robin Roberts Doing Well After Surgery

Robin Roberts has begun her journey down the road to recovery after going under the knife following her bone marrow transplant on Thursday (September 20, 2012). The whole procedure lasted a mere five minutes and was caught on film for Good Morning America, with her co-anchor Diane Sawyer and weatherman Sam Champion on hand to watch and give support. Champion said after the procedure, "I don't think I will ever forget the power and love that was in that room.”

Roberts' procedure saw her being injected slowly with millions of stem cells harvested from her sister, Sally-Ann, in order to treat her MDS, a rare blood disorder Roberts has had since birth. Family and friends, as well as co-workers surrounded her as the procedure was undertaken, with the song Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and some of her other favourites being played as the operation took place.

The co-anchor’s oncologist, Dr. Gail Roboz, said on Good Morning America earlier today that the next 7-10 days will be crucial for Roberts as they watch to see the stem cells "find a home." Roboz said that she is in an "in between zone" at the time being, whilst the blood will be checked several times a day to look for the white blood cell count to rise.
