Ginger first posted a selfie in the gym sporting a shorter haircut and fresh bangs.
The TV personality paused her workout to snap the photo while donning a black sports bra and a tight blue top.
She smiled softly at the camera, seemingly feeling her new look.
In the same post, Ginger shared a video taken during her morning commute to Good Morning America.
In it, the 42-year-old sat in the front seat of her car, excitingly running her fingers through her new hairdo.
She gushed over the hairstyle, telling her followers: “I call these flu bangs. Flu bangs. I’m just happy to be alive. You don’t even know me.”
Ginger further explained the sudden hair change in her caption: “I’m calling them ‘flu bangs’ — because I’m so grateful I survived. Life is short, cut bangs also, I may or may not have watched all 3 seasons of @emilyinparis when I was sick & had a little @lilyjcollins inspiration— no trauma here, just flu. #flubangs #bangs #haircut #cut #traumabangs.”
Fans adored the updated look and let the TV star know in the comments.
“They look wonderful. Glad you’re feeling better,” one person wrote.
“They look gorgeous. A whole new look for you, of course you look pretty in any style!” another remarked.
“Or you can call them ZZZZZZ BANGS,” a third joked.
“I love your flu bangs! You look fabulous!” a fourth fan added.
Ginger returned to her morning show duties on Monday after being out sick the week before from the flu.
The California native informed fans of her illness on Thursday by sharing multiple photos on Instagram showing just how sick she was.
The first was half of her son’s face, holding a thermometer.
A Gatorade and pill bottle was seen on the table next to him.
The second one showed Ginger’s temperature, which read 103.3 degrees.
The last one was a screenshot of something on her phone that told her to “Take it easy.”
“Your body temperature is still higher than normal. If you’re not feeling well, continue taking it easy,” it read.
The ABC star captioned the post: “I’ve got great care but these rolling fevers have taken me out. Hope to see you back on @goodmorningamerica soon. I was most excited to update the drought monitor today… #nerd Thanks @samwnek @amaranteweather @samchampion for holding it down.”
Fan-favorite Sam Champion filled in for her at the last minute after he returned from his vacation.
BACK IN ACTION
However, Ginger recovered fairly quickly and was back with her morning show crew, including hosts Michael Strahan, George Stephanopoulos, and Robin Roberts, a few days later.
She looked in good spirits as she donned a cheery yellow sweater over a black top and a black-and-white skirt for her first day back.
GMA viewers celebrated Ginger’s reappearance on social media, with one happy fan tweeting: “Good to see you back on TV. Hope you feel better. Looking great as always!”
A second wrote: “Welcome back, hope you’re feeling better!”
“Sweet Ginger, thank goodness you are feeling better and back to work,” a third fan said. “I need my Ginger in the morning!”
Another wrote online: “Ginger is back. All is good.”
Ginger gave a little health update in response: “Thank you! Feeling so much better.”
‘SO MANY FAKES’
However, Ginger’s return didn’t go so smoothly as she discovered someone was pretending to be her on social media.
One fan shared a screenshot that showed the spam account followed him.
He said: “As honored as I would be for Ginger Zee to follow me, the one in the screenshot isn’t her.
“Obviously. Reported and blocked. We don’t play that.”
Ginger revealed that she had reported and blocked the fake account.
She raged: “So many fakes – I’m gonna go report and block if you all could too.”
Ginger assured fans that the fake account wasn’t hers.
