Champion, 51, and Robierb met through mutual friends a few years ago in Miami, where Robierb resides.

Champion is the weather anchor for ABC’s flagship morning program, a position he has held since September 2006; he previously anchored WABC-TV in New York City’s weather forecasts for 18 years. Robierb, born in Brazil, is an artist who shows his work in Miami, Atlanta, Santa Monica and New York.

The couple announced their engagement in October on “Good Morning America.” Watch:
