Amy Robach's ex Andrew Shue's family breaks silence on divorce amid affair with T.J. Holmes - what Elisabeth Shue said

Amy Robach's ex-husband, Andrew Shue, is being supported by his family in the wake of his divorce from the former GMA3 host and now his sister, Elisabeth Shue has revealed how her sibling is coping.

More than six months after Amy's affair with her co-host T.J. Holmes was made public, the Back to the Future actress has broken her silence. "He is awesome," the 59-year-old  told Page Six at the premiere of her recent movie, The Good Half, on Thursday at the Tribeca Festival. "He is doing really good."

(Like his sister, who starred in hits like Adventures in Babysitting, The Karate Kid, and Leaving Las Vegas, Andrew Shue is a working actor best known for his role on TV's Melrose Place.)

The couple were married for 12 years before their breakup and T.J. was with his ex-wife, Marilee Fiegbig, for the same amount of time.

Her update comes as Amy and T.J.'s romance heats up and they were spotted enjoying a steamy public kiss in New York City.

The pair's affair consequently lost them their jobs at ABC, and it is not yet known if or when they will return to TV. On January 27, a statement from an ABC spokesman announcing Amy and T.J.'s departure was released.

Newly single Andrew, 56, has three sons with his first wife, Jennifer Haggeney, who he was married to from 1994 until 2009, the same year Amy split from her first husband Tim McIntosh, and a year before the two then tied the knot.

Nate, born in 1996, is his oldest son, followed by Aidan, born in 1999, and Wyatt, born in 2004. Meanwhile, their former step-sisters are Ava, born in 2002, and Annalise, born in 2006.

Andrew has a close bond with Elisabeth, who is married to director, producer, and writer Davis Guggenheim. 

In a feature he wrote for TheRoot.com in 2014, T.J. gushed about his wife and daughter. "My family and I are closer, my individual net worth has gone up every year since we met," he wrote. "In every way, I’m better off because I’m married. So, for me, a successful marriage has revolved around this principle: I like who I am with her."

He made similar statements in a social media post which later went viral when he was celebrating their 10th anniversary.

Alongside two stunning pictures of her, one showing her on their wedding day and another more recent one, he wrote: "This particular #decadechallenge is a little late, but… 10 years ago, Marilee Fiebig married me. And despite my best efforts, she remained married to me for the past 10 years.

"That's not hyperbole. I'm not being dramatic. I gave her plenty of reasons, excuses, and opportunities to walk her fine ass out the dooooooor. But instead, with her built-in black woman superpower, she showed a grace and patience that's incomprehensible. Asking her for another 10 years would be asking too much. Another 10 months? That may even be a stretch."
