T.J. Holmes’ daughter Sabine is moving on to the next chapter of her academic journey.

On Thursday, June 20, Holmes’ ex-wife Marilee Fiebig shared the exciting news of their daughter Sabine’s 5th-grade graduation in a touching Instagram post.

Fiebig, who finalized her divorce from Holmes in October 2023, expressed her mixed emotions about the milestone.

“Congrats to all the graduates, including my soon-to-be middle schooler (who also will be taller than me before summer’s end),” Fiebig captioned a photo of herself and Sabine.

“I have nothing smart or wise to say…chapters like these are for celebrating, crying and letting go but I’ve been choked up all week.”

In the heartfelt post, Fiebig, a lawyer, shared her thoughts on watching her daughter grow up.

“What I will say is that middle school and beyond, I’ll continue to follow her morning walk to school, but far enough behind so if she turns to see if I’m following, I have time to jump behind cars and bushes. #Sabine.” 

In the accompanying photo, Fiebig is seen smiling brightly in a long red dress while Sabine, dressed in blue, poses beside her mother. The proud mom shared additional snaps from the event on her Instagram Stories, capturing candid moments of the special day.

“I told her to look happy (then we fought about lipgloss). #preteen #5thgradegraduation,” Fiebig wrote over a photo of herself grinning as Sabine playfully stuck her tongue out.

She also included pictures of Sabine celebrating with her friends, marking the joyous occasion.

While T.J. Holmes did not share the news of his daughter’s graduation on his social media, he has frequently posted about Sabine in the past. In April, Holmes shared a series of photos of Sabine enjoying the beach during Spring Break.

“Spring Break Bean is the best Bean. #BabySabine #daconchshack,” he captioned the post. Additionally, Holmes celebrated Sabine’s 11th birthday in January by posting a video of her making a wish and blowing out the candles on her birthday cake.

This milestone in Sabine’s life comes amid Holmes’ new relationship with his former GMA3 co-host Amy Robach.

The couple’s relationship became public in 2022, and Holmes recently opened up about their unexpected romance during a live episode of their podcast, Amy & T.J., in New York City on June 10.

“We didn’t mean to fall in love. We didn’t expect to fall in love. We didn’t even realize we were falling in love,” Holmes said.

“Given all that was on the line, you could even argue, we didn’t want to fall in love, which seems like an odd thing to say about the woman you’re sitting on stage with that you claim to be in love with.”

Holmes continued, “It wasn’t what we were planning for, but it happened. It did.” Robach, who has two daughters, Ava and Annalise, with her ex-husband Tim McIntosh, echoed his sentiments.

As Holmes and Fiebig navigate co-parenting, they continue to support their daughter Sabine through her significant life moments.

Despite the changes in their personal lives, both parents remain dedicated to ensuring that Sabine feels loved and celebrated.

The end of 5th grade marks a significant transition for Sabine as she prepares to enter middle school.

Fiebig’s emotional post highlights the bittersweet nature of watching a child grow up—filled with pride, nostalgia, and the inevitable realization that time moves swiftly.

For Sabine, the next few months promise new experiences and growth. As she embarks on her middle school journey, she does so with the unwavering support of her parents.

Holmes and Fiebig’s commitment to co-parenting and celebrating their daughter’s achievements demonstrates the resilience of their family bond, despite the challenges they’ve faced.
