After nearly nine years of marriage, Amy Robach and her husband, Andrew Shue, have totally kept the spark alive! “He’s the romantic,” the 20/20 coanchor, 45, exclusively told Closer Weekly — in the magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands now — of former Melrose Place hunk husband, 51.
But just how romantic? In October 2018, Andrew took Amy to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro for her five-year “cancerversary,” a celebration of the 2013 day Amy was diagnosed with breast cancer, which she has survived. “He bought me this beautiful tanzanite ring, a beautiful blue stone that’s only formed in the foothills of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and gave it to me for summiting. He even got down on one knee!” she told Closer at the WebMD Health Hero Awards Now on January 15 in New York City. “Now I have to come up with something [for him]!”
Though Amy says Andrew is the romantic in their relationship, she does her fair-share to keep their bond strong, too. “I keep the house clean, get groceries — things that don’t seem romantic, but really are!” she told us. As for what’s really kept the couple together all these years, Amy told Closer in another interview that their relationship success is due to “a lot of hard work.”
“I mean we had the foundation of extreme passion and respect for one another and then yes, life gets hard, and five kids and ex-spouses and jobs that take us in different directions. It’s trying, but we work hard at it,” she explained. “We’d gone to couples therapy. Oh my gosh. Several times at different points in our marriage and we’re not shy to say that that has been a huge part in our success as a couple that we work at it and we get help when we need it.”
Amy and Andrew seem like the best couple — we wish them many more years of happiness together!
