Sam Champion, the weather anchor for
Good Morning America, married photographer Rubem Robierb in
New York City on Friday.
The 10-minute ceremony, held in
Champion's home, was officiated by New York State Supreme Court
Justice George J. Silver, ABC
Champion married surrounded by members
of his GMA family, including Robin Roberts, Lara Spencer and Josh
Elliott. Roberts read a poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
Robierb's mother and sister attended the ceremony via Skype from
“The whole family is at the house
right now, so I should be able to walk in and have everything
[done],” Champion said on GMA before tying the knot.
Previous to announcing his engagement
in October, Champion had not previously publicly discussed his sexual
orientation. He's the first co-host of a network morning television
show to come out gay and the first to marry a member of the same sex.
The couple will celebrate their
nuptials at a New Year's Eve party in Miami.
