It’s also not unusual for the TV anchor to be absent from the ABC program on a Monday as he usually appears as a football analyst on Fox NFL Sunday.
The father-of-four turned 51 on November 21 and understandably wanted a day off from hosting the breakfast program.
Fans were keen to send well wishes to Michael and took to Twitter to mark his special occasion.

MAN’S BEST FRIEND
On Saturday, Michael shared a sweet snap of the dog relaxing on a porch in the sunshine.
He captioned the post: “Enzo is officially my guard dog. If someone offers him a treat, I may be in trouble LOL #Enzo.”
