GMA weatherman Sam Champion is used to commenting on rising temperatures, but the 52-year-old ABC anchor got to soak up the sun himself as he enjoyed an idyllic honeymoon with his Brazilian husband Rubem Robierb, 36.
The two were spotted at Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro as they looked relaxed and in love as they posed for photos on the beach.
The couple sported deep tans as they sunned themselves while topless, with Sam sporting a blue and purple costume and Rubem wearing monochrome trunks. Sam also shared a sexy candid snap of the pair posing on the beach and showing off their muscles.
“Thanks for ur tweets!! Honeymoon is perfect @RubemRobierbArt,” Sam tweeted.
Before departing on the trip, Sam also revealed that he and his partner were not packing many clothes for their beach holiday.
“Now.. rush home and pack for 2 wk honeymoon @rubemrobierbArt!! 1 swimsuit and done :),” he tweeted.
Sam married fine arts photographer Rubem in December 2012, with an official ceremony in his Manhattan apartment with his Good Morning America co-anchors as guests.
Sam revealed in October 2012 that he was gay and that he and his partner were set to marry.
The weather anchor’s sexual orientation had long been known to his friends and media colleagues, but he had never publicly discussed it before making the announcement.
In a statement on the ABC News website posted in October, Champion said: “We are thrilled and so excited and thank everyone for their good wishes.”
