Off the air and on vacation, T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach look loved up and chilled out as they stroll along the sand at Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Seen in these images obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, the former GMA 3 co-hosts turned lovers are enjoying their second week at the idyllic resort town on Mexico’s Pacific coast.
Robach accessorized her tiny yellow, crochet top, bikini with the $650 David Yurman promise ring hung on a $350 Tiffany chain that Holmes bought for her 50th birthday at the beginning of the month.
Holmes, 45, carried two cream tote bags and accessorized his low-slung black shorts with shades and a Cheshire cat grin.
Apparently unable to keep his hands off his lover, he playfully squeezed Robach’s behind as they walked side by side in what has become something of a signature move for the butt-patting one-time morning show lothario.
T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach appeared as loved up as ever on their Mexican vacation this week where Holmes was unable to keep his hands off his lover and was seen giving her a playful squeeze in the butt
The two were seen enjoying the second week of their trip at a Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Thursday – nearly a month after they were fired from ABC

Later, the couple enjoyed a romantic dinner at a kitschy local joint where they drank and kissed under the wide-eyed stare of a plastic pink flamingo.
Holmes wore chinos and a black muscle shirt. Robach paired a high-waisted, form skimming, floral skirt with a deep-V T-shirt.
She carried a small black purse and neutral sandals as the couple headed out over the sand in the soft evening light.
Their affair, exposed by DailyMail.com in November, has cost both their marriages and their contracts at ABC, with each ending their tenure at GMA3 with severance pay-outs last month.
DailyMail.com has learned that Robach’s divorce from former Melrose Place actor, Andrew Shue, 56, is all but finalized.
Meanwhile, Holmes filed for divorce from attorney Marilee Feibig, 45 – with whom he a nine-year-old daughter – last month.
Many had doubted that the couple would last out the turbulence that blew up around their outing last year.
But, speaking last week, a friend of the couple told DailyMail.com: ‘T.J. and Amy are more in love than ever.’
The trip is one of several T.J. and Amy have set off on since they were pulled off GMA3 in December due to their affair

A friend of the couple – who had anchored GMA3 together since 2020 – told DailyMail.com last week: ‘T.J. and Amy are more in love than ever’

They added: ‘It’s kind of proof of how committed they are to each other that they’ve weather 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.
‘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.’
That strong bond of friendship was one that their former spouses thought they too shared.
Robach helped get Holmes’s marriage back on track following an earlier affair with GMA producer Natasha Singh – a woman who regarded her as a close friend.
And Holmes referred to Shue as his ‘brother’ during what now comes over as a cringeworthy GMA3 segment when Robach and Shue appeared side by side to promote their newly released book, ‘Better Together.’
The illustrated children’s book was designed to chronicle the challenges of what they then billed as the successful blending of their two families as each came to the marriage with offspring from their prior one.
Robach had two daughters from her first marriage and Shue had three sons from his.
