Barack Obama, Ben Affleck, Alicia Keys And More Congratulate Robin Roberts On Her Return To 'GMA'

20 February 2013

After taking a leave of absence from 'Good Morning America' after under-going a bone-marrow transplant, Robin Roberts made her return to the show today and was sent well-wishes by many high-profile celebs - including Barack Obama himself.

Robin Roberts left the show exactly five months ago as she needed to have a bone-marrow transplant, due to suffering from a rare blood disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome.

She returned to the show in America today, wearing a bright blue dress and wide smile. She was welcomed back to the show by her fellow cast, and was given lots of well wishes from viewers - including Barack Obama and Michelle Obama.

The President sent a taped message to Robin for her return, saying that he was very happy that she is "back doing what you do best". His wife, Michelle Obama, agreed and said she is "looking forward" to visiting her in the studio in a few days for an interview.

Many celebrities also took to twitter to show their support for the TV presenter. Ben Affleck tweeted saying: "Welcome back @RobinRoberts. We missed you. #TeamRobin."

Fellow TV personality Jimmy Kimmel also took to twitter to show his support, saying: "so happy to see the very lovely @RobinRoberts back to work on @GMA #TeamRobin"

Alicia Keys also congratulated Robin on her return to GMA, tweeting: "@RobinRoberts You are a humbling inspiration to us all! Enjoy your first day back to @GMA Much love to you! #teamrobin"

The GMA programme was certainly full of celebration as everyone congratulated Robin on her return, but they had to refrain from hugging or high-fiveing as Robin's immune system is still very low due to going through a very serious medical procedure.

Robin welcomed the well-wishes with open arms, thanking everyone for their support. She told the viewers that the messages "have been so incredibly wonderful."

She spoke about being back on the show, saying: "I keep pinching myself and I realise that this is real. This is really happening. Faith, family and friends have brought me to this moment, and I am so full of gratitude. I share this morning, this day of celebration, with everyone."

After her welcome, Robin continued to return to her normal role in the show and addressed the news of Olympian Oscar Pistorius and stories about Kelly Clarkson.

The presenter has a lot coming up, with the interview with First lady Michelle Obama this week, and covering the Oscars this weekend. Her medical team spoke on the air about her ambitious schedule, but said that they do not mind her giving the busy schedule a try.

ABC have planned to air a special on Robin on Friday, titled '20/20'.

We are happy to see her back on the air and hope she continues to feel better!
