The well wishes remain in line with Strahan's previous comments on the show since his controversial exit, which reportedly blindsided longtime co-host and close friend, Ripa. The pair have reportedly barely spoken off-air since Ripa found out about Strahan's exit at the same time as the public did. Following the May 2016 bombshell, Strahan stayed on for a couple of weeks to host before ultimately departing early.

Before Seacrest unexpectedly became Ripa's full-time replacement co-host, the daytime TV mainstay rotated through a variety of guest co-hosts like Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, Megyn Kelly and Jerry O'Connell.
