Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes looked very happy after ABC announced their exit from the network.

The couple was photographed packing on the PDA while laughing and smiling on a sidewalk in Los Angeles Friday, just hours after ABC confirmed their departures from "GMA3."

Photos exclusively released by Daily Mail showed the "20/20" host and the former CNN reporter happily embracing, with Robach jumping into Holmes' arms and wrapping her arms and legs around him.

One photo also showed them hugging in broad daylight, seemingly not minding if other people would see them. In the snap, Holmes appeared to whisper something to his rumored girlfriend, who had both of her arms wrapped around his waist.

The outlet said that Robach and Holmes had just walked out of a local establishment when the photos were captured. They appeared to be in high spirits throughout the sighting since there is also a photo of them laughing while holding onto each other.

The pair reportedly smooched during the outing, according to Us Weekly. But no photo of the intimate moment between the co-anchors was leaked.

For the outing, Robach was dressed casually in a gray cardigan, high-waisted jeans, open-toe heels and large sunnies. Holmes also sported a casual getup comprising a black hoodie, blue jeans, black and white trainers and sunglasses.

Earlier in the day, Robach and Holmes were spotted wearing matching outfits when they stepped out for a morning jog in the City of Angels. The two were seen exiting the same house but heading in opposite directions for their workout.

Around the same time, TMZ reported that Holmes and Robach had officially signed their exit deals with ABC. However, the exact amount involved in the agreement was not disclosed.

Unnamed insiders with information on the matter also relayed to Page Six that the former co-hosts got their deals "signed, executed and done."

A spokesperson for ABC News eventually confirmed this to the press by releasing a statement saying, "After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes, about different options, we all agreed it's best for everyone that they move on from ABC News. We recognize their talent and commitment over the years and are thankful for their contributions."

Both Robach and Holmes have yet to personally address their exit from their former morning program and the network.
