Michael Strahan touched down on “Good Morning America” Tuesday.

He officially joined the morning show family just after 8 a.m., but not before they welcomed him with a tribute video summarizing his successful career.

The clip showed a baby Strahan, who eventually became a Super Bowl championship-winning football star. It then segued into his other morning show, “Live! with Kelly & Michael,” which helped with a seamless transition to “GMA.”
