E! News caught up with Michael Strahan at the Ice Age: Collision Course New York Screening on the red carpet. The past cohost of ‘LIVE with Kelly & Michael’ was approach with the question of: “How is life after ‘LIVE’?”. Strahan’s answer is quite surprising as you can tell that he just wasn’t enjoying the set life of that show. It’s clear that he wanted out and just a clear head.

“You know what? I’ve learned to have fun. Life is not that serious.”

Michael stood next to his adorable 11-year-old twin daughters, Sophia and Isabella.

“We have so many things that happen that make you realize how precious life is, how you’d better enjoy every day and that your attitude is—you can determine what your attitude is….You wake up, you make yourself happy, you make yourself whatever you want it to be, and that’s how I look at it every day that I wake up and that’s been more than in the last few months,” he said. “That’s just the way I live my life.”

After leaving ‘LIVE’, the Giants star did stop by Netflix‘s Chelsea to talk about his departure from the show:

“I really haven’t missed it,” adding, “But I loved it. Don’t get me wrong. I loved it. When you get a break, sometimes you kind of go, ‘Wow, I kind of needed it.’ I needed a break.”

Mr. Strahan will be joining Good Morning America as a full-time co-host in September. He’s been serving as a part-time contributor since 2014, and is now moving up the ladder.

He says:

“Can’t wait to be there full-time. Great, great family to work with over there. I’m looking forward to it.”

Congrats to Michael!

Michael Strahan Leaving LIVE! For GMA, Kelly Ripa Kept In The Dark

Michael Strahan is set to leave LIVE! With Kelly and Michael in a few months for Good Morning America.

The announcement was made an hour after Monday’s show and kept under such tight wraps that not even co-host Kelly Ripa was given a heads up. Executives ambushed Ripa immediately following taping, barely breaking the news that Strahan was moving on up before it became public. The face of Electrolux was reportedly “livid” and who can blame her; this isn’t the first time Ripa’s been scorned by a TV husband. Back in 2011, previous co-host Regis Philibin dropped the bomb that he was calling it quits to the TV darling 15 minutes before going on air.

ABC also released an internal memo revealing Strahan would be wrapping up his hosting duties by the end of the summer to work on GMA full-time. The former NFL player chose to be present when Ripa learned of his departure. Apparently it was the networks decision to keep Ripa along with other key staff members in the dark to prevent any leaks and Strahan didn’t get a say in the matter.

Ripa was noticeably absent Wednesday morning a day following the announcement of her co-host’s pending exit. Strahan was joined by Saturday Night Live alum Ana Gasteyer. He of course immediately addressed the news confirming that he is leaving the show and joining GMA as a full-time co-anchor in September. Strahan also took time out to thank the fans.

“But I do want to say to all of our viewers out there … four years ago when I came here I’m sure they were surprised. You still continue to give us your eyeballs and watch this show. Thank you guys. I couldn’t have asked for better fans at all. You guys are absolutely amazing.”

The guy with the “gap tooth” everyones come to love reassured fans that he isn’t going anywhere.

“I’m always available to guest co-host because I consider myself to be a part of this family forever,”

Strahan joined Ripa on LIVE! four years ago back in 2012. He became a member of the GMA team in 2014, appearing twice a week while co-hosting Live! 

Congratulations to Michael Strahan on his new gig! We hope him and Ripa are able to mend fences, it does seem like his hands were tied.
