Meanwhile, Robin called out GMA co-star Michael Strahan on Tuesday’s show while celebrating his latest achievement.
Michael received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Robin attended the ceremony to support him.
Speaking about the special moment from Tuesday’s broadcast while the footage aired, Robin joked, “Look at him! People are going to step on him!”
As the audience and crew laughed at his joke, Robin continued, “We’re so proud. Our very own Michael Strahan got that star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.
“He’s no stranger to making history and he did so with his once-in-a-lifetime achievement…the first person to earn a star in the sports-entertainment category,” she continued.
“Michael, you’ve accomplished so much in your career, and can I say it was humbling to be there and see the mosaic of people you’ve brought together.
“And having your mom, she was beaming, what did that moment mean to you, Michael?” Robin asked.
He replied, “It means the world. To have you there, to have my mother there, to have my children there.
“Seeing them proud is all I need because you know we wake up, we do what we do, I don’t especially think about awards or anything like that.
“But it’s definitely an incredible honor,” he added, before joking, “And I’m going to step on myself!”
Earlier this week, Robin shared a throwback photo from his time as a reporter for ESPN.
Roberts worked at ESPN for 15 years and worked his way up to co-host the 6 p.m. edition of SportsCenter.
In a tweet on Saturday, an NBA Twitter account reposted Interpretation by Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis of the national anthem sung 30 years ago to the day.
The accompanying music video featured Robin commenting on ESPN’s coverage of Lewis’ rendition of the national anthem.
The Good Morning America host replied to the tweet, “30 years ago? I remember it like it was yesterday!”
Many of his fans responded by all saying the same thing.
“We remember it now that we see it. It was so funny. No one could keep a straight face. Thanks for the laugh.
Continued blessings,” one person tweeted.
“It always makes me laugh! another wrote.
“30 years later, I’m still cracking up,” someone else said.
The flashback comes as fans missed Roberts at the news desk in New York on Monday.
