GMA’s Sam Champion gets married!
Good Morning America’s weather anchor Sam Champion married photographer Rubem Robierb in New York City on Friday.
New York State Supreme Court Justice George J. Silver conducted the 10 minute ceremony in Champion’s home. Among the participants was GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts who read a poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Robierb’s mother and sisters participated via Skype from Brazil.
Earlier in the day on GMA, Champion spoke about the big day: ‘The whole family is at the house right now, so I should be able to walk in and have everything [done].’
The engagement was reported in a New York Times profile in October on Champion’s friend, MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts, who married longtime partner Patrick Abner earlier that month.
The article was Champion’s way of coming out publicly.
The couple plan a New Year’s Eve celebration of their wedding in Miami.
