Promises, promises! Star-crossed T.J. Holmes took his love for Amy Robach to new heights for her 50th birthday.
Despite being out of work, the former GMA3 anchor was spotted buying a gold promise ring and a chain to hang it on as he prepared for Monday, the day his sweetheart reached the half-century mark.
Holmes, 45, stopped first at David Yurman’s downtown Manhattan store where he walked away with an 18-karat gold Unity Cable ring that goes for $650, part of the bridal/wedding collection.
Then he sauntered over to nearby Tiffany & Co. where he snagged a gold chain. He promptly looped the ring on to it to see how it looked before the clerk popped it into the store’s distinctive robin’s egg blue bag and T.J. walked away with both bags and a glint in his eye.
The thoughtful gift means Amy will be able to wear the sign of commitment around her neck pending the formal end of both their marriages.
A friend of the couple tells DailyMail.com, ‘T.J. and Amy are more in love than ever.’

It’s likely the gift is a promise ring for his co-star turned lover to wear around her neck until both of their divorces are finalized

While T.J. went ring hunting, Amy was seen grocery shopping in Manhattan.
The TV host carried three black grocery bags and was casual in jeans, boots and a sweater.
The celebration of Amy’s Big 50 comes just days after the pair sealed the exit deal with ABC after weeks of negotiations.
A friend of the couple said they are under a lot of pressure now that they’re out of a job and have divorces pending.
‘It’s kind of proof of how committed they are to each other that they’ve weathered this sh**storm after their secret love affair was exposed, they were suspended from GMA3 and then waited for agonizing weeks as ABC kept them in limbo about their future,’ they said.
‘But don’t forget that T.J. and Amy were friends long before they were lovers. Their relationship began with an awfully strong bond that – to this point – has only become, well, more.’
An industry source said, ‘What the future holds for T.J. and Amy professionally is hard to say right now. Their on-air chemistry would probably be magnified and audiences would gravitate to them. But there still a lot of baggage there – especially for him.’

Just last week exclusive DailyMail.com photos showed the pair celebrate their exits from ABC with hugs and kisses on a sidewalk in Los Angeles.
The lovers were caught walking out of a Southern California establishment hand-in-hand, nearly two months after their affair was first made public by DailyMail.com.
At one point, Amy even jumped into T.J.’s arms, wrapping her arms and legs around him.
The public display of affection came just hours after DailyMail.com secured a copy of the email bosses sent to GMA staff, saying that after ‘several productive conversations,’ it was agreed it was best for the couple to ‘move on from ABC News.’
The blonde journalist seemed carefree as she was seen laughing when T.J. scooped her up and she pulled her legs around him before he placed her back on the pavement.
Their afternoon antics are a sign they are free to go about their ‘new normal’ after weeks of firestorm and fallouts over their affair, which ABC bosses referred to as ‘a distraction for so many of us.’

Both Holmes and Robach have been married to their respective spouses since 2010. It is not known when or how Holmes’s wife, 44-year-old attorney, Marilee Fiebig, (pictured together in 2012) and Robach’s husband, former Melrose Place actor Andrew Shue, 55, (pictured right in March 2022) learned of the romance, but both couples are said to have split up in August
The co-hosts first sparked headlines after they were caught in November looking cozy as they hung out together in New York City.
They were accused of having an affair before T.J. officially filed for divorce in January. Robach’s divorce is all but finalized.
Despite the circumstances of their exit, they have both been given compensation packages to leave GMA.
It was a welcome announcement for many staff members who have spent the last two months waiting for the other shoe to drop.
‘They got what they deserved. It didn’t help that they had few friends in the building to go to bat for either of them,’ one staffer told TMZ.
It was a major shift for the ABC which initially backed their two stars and claimed they had not broken any rules when DailyMail.com exposed their affair in November.
The co-anchors were suspended from the show after initially weathering the storm. Initially they returned to the air on December 1, just one day after the scandal broke, and appeared to make subtle quips about their situation.
Four days later president of ABC Kim Godwin announced that they would not appear on air because their relationship was a ‘internal and external distraction.’
