Looks like Michael Strahan is moving on in all ways.

Then on Tuesday afternoon, news broke that he will actually step down much earlier than expected – his last show will be May 13, four month earlier than previously announced.

Ripa, 45, and Strahan, 44, who walked out together holding hands, took a seat behind the co-hosting desk Wednesday morning but didn't address the news, instead jumping straight into the hot discussion topics of the day.

Originally posted 04/25/2016 01:00PM

Kelly Ripa is gearing up for her return to Live! after last week's bombshell announcement that her co-host Michael Strahan is leaving the show.

A source tells PEOPLE that "having a few days away from things was very helpful" for Ripa, who has been noticeably absent from the ABC talk show since Strahan revealed Tuesday that he would be joining the network's Good Morning America as a full time co-anchor in September.

Of Ripa, 45, whom multiple sources told PEOPLE last week was "completely blindsided" by the news, the source says "she is glad she had the time with [her husband] Mark [Consuelos] to celebrate their anniversary and to think about things with the show."

The source says "there has been great support from both men and women who have seen this type of situation happen to people," and that "was really gratifying to her."
