Many women’s wish to be David Muir‘s girlfriend and get married to him was shattered a few years ago when ABC’s anchor David Muir apparently came out of the closet. The news of David Muir dating Gio Benitez went viral and broke the internet then as this couple was seen holding hands in public and going to gay bars together. Although they came out openly and never accepted their gay relationship, they were concluded to be in a relationship.
Despite dating each other for many years, this former couple David and Gio is no longer together. The reason behind their breakup hasn’t been disclosed yet. Neither do we have any information regarding when did they break up?
However, Gio Benitez married lifestyle blogger Tommy DiDario in 2015 after Benitez proposed to DiDario on the Eiffel Tower in September 2015.
Since David broke up with Gio, he has tried his best to keep his relationships or affairs out of the media's eyes. Even though his fan and people close to him have suspected David of having a new boyfriend, we can’t totally confirm it as there are no strong evidence or reports regarding such false rumors.

It looks like his breakup with Gio followed by Gio’s marriage had a deep impact on him. This can be one of the reasons why David hasn’t been able to move on and announce publicly his dating history, his new relationships, or his boyfriend.
