Michael Strahan has made good on reports that he's joining "Good Morning America" by paying a visit to the ABC breakfast show on Tuesday.

The former football star and current co-host with Kelly Ripa of "Live With Kelly and Michael" got a red-carpet welcome from the "GMA" team.

Anchor Robin Roberts expressed excitement that Strahan will be there "a couple of days a week."

Then the cast presented him with an alarm clock and a huge coffee cup.

His brief appearance ended with promises he'll be back "next week."

Strahan joins Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Amy Robach, Lara Spencer and Ginger Zee on television's top-rated morning show.

Unconfirmed reports of Strahan's new part-time gig surfaced early this month. He has said this side job won't affect his daily duties hosting "Live."
