7:32 am
before. something that was happening right there in times square where people were gathered and you would think it was something like new year's eve when you see the crowds down there. people usually gather in those crowds to see that ball drop on new year's eve but the last thing anybody wanted last night was to see anything or anybody fall. >> if you can make it in new york, you can make it anywhere. >> reporter: this is the moment we have all been waiting for. nik wallenda and his sister, lijana, walking across times square. >> so much blood, so much sweat. >> sweat. >> and more tears than i have ever put into a walk. >> reporter: 25 stories off the ground, starting at either end of a 1,300-foot steel wire, only three-quarters of an inch thick. adding to the tension, this heart-stopping moment when nik and lijana needed to cross each other.
7:33 am
>> hi. >> reporter: lijana straddled the wire as nik walked towards her unhooking one of her safety tethers more than 200 feet above the crossroads of the world below. >> this is tight. >> you're good where you're at. >> hold on. >> you don't have to move. i'm going to do this. what do you think, new york city? what do you think, world? >> reporter: nik made the crossover but the brother/sister team isn't in the clear yet. just as lijana goes to stand up -- >> that wire is really solid. >> i hooked this pole in wrong. hold on. a problem with her safety tether. >> i'm fixing the pole. it's too short. i hooked it in wrong. >> reporter: she was able to unstrap and re-strap the pole, finally able to stand and start walking again. >> good job. you're amazing. >> wow. >> reporter: and throughout the journey. >> how are you doing, lijana? >> yeah, i'm good. >> reporter: they took us along as they offer each other encouragement. >> good job. >> reporter: lijana even singing. ♪

7:35 am
tether if people didn't understand that. hello, nik and lijana wallenda, and i'm happy to see you on the ground. lijana, this is your first big performance since the fall a few years ago and when you got to the edge of that building and you looked out, what was going through your mind? >> oh, man, you know, of course, you get butterflies and a little sick to your stomach. what am i about to do? what is wrong with my family? but then i remember all the training and how hard i worked and you have to fall back on that. you know, i knew my ability. i knew i could do it, you know, i was well trained. >> take us through the first steps. the first steps seem to be the hardest. >> they are. the first steps -- i had to kind of lift my pole to get around some of the steel sticking out of the building so that was a little bit -- a little harder. and i'd say about the first probably 20 feet, i was a little shaky in the legs, you know, but then it really becomes home. i remember this is what i love. this is what i have done my whole life, and it truly becomes home. it's sort of -- it's peaceful, you know?
7:36 am
>> and you start out at one times square. nik, you started at two times square a little ahead of lijana. what went through your mind as you stepped out on the wire? were you more concerned for yourself or for your sister? >> i was more concerned for lijana. i've done this a long time and at a high level and i was very concerned about that first step for me as well. it was just because to access the wire was so difficult. i went up the evening before and realized that it wasn't going to be quite as easy as i thought. so not only was i thinking about myself, but what the guys needed to do in coaching them on how to grab her when she needed to get off. >> now to the part of the walk that left everybody speechless, breathless, whatever you want to call it. the crossover. when you squatted down. you said you practiced 25 times in a row to make sure you could do it. how was it to do it on the wire high above times square with the crowd underneath you? >> again, you know, i was a little bit nervous about it, but -- and i remember that i did it 25 times.
7:37 am
come on. this is flawless. >> what people didn't realize is my balancing pole started to slide down. i was wearing lululemon pants and i'm used to practicing it in jeans. my pole started to slide down, and i lost grip of it for a second, and that's why she said, are you okay, nik? she saw me teeter a little bit. i was worried about her standing back up. >> you had this dialogue on the wire. i think everyone expected to be quiet. silent. complete focus, but your focus seemed to be communicating with each other, and also with your father who was in the studio watching on the monitor. and you mentioned -- this blew my mind. you were on wire the, lijana, and you mentioned the accident. >> yeah, yeah. >> when you did that did you know you were over it? >> over the accident? >> yes, that you were comfortable. >> i feel like i conquered it.
7:38 am
it didn't -- it didn't -- it didn't consume me, the accident. i could have taken that fear from falling and never walked the wire again. i could have walked away but i wouldn't let that fear conquer me, you know. so i pushed through. >> we heard you, nik. you mentioned so much about fear when you were walking. if people would let go of their fear how much they could accomplish, that so much is possible. is that your message to people? >> absolutely, yeah. that was what that walk was all about hopefully encouraging and inspiring others to overcome their greatest fears. our society is gripped by fear and we're held back from our greatest achievements because of that fear, and it can be silly fears. ours happen to be related to what we do because of that accident or was. and i think lijana is living proof anyone can overcome anything, any challenges they face. >> how was it when you ran back to two times square to meet up with your sister and you saw each other and had that hug after you completed this? how was that feeling? >> i get goose bumps thinking about it. to be honest with you, when i got down on the street just to look up at her walking it was mesmerizing to me to see her up
7:39 am
there after everything she had to overcome to get there. i wanted to stop and take it all in. i didn't want to walk up there and meet her. don't get me wrong, i wanted to meet her but i wanted to take it in. i did for a moment and hauled butt so i was waiting for her when show arrived. >> how was it for you when you saw him waiting? >> it was amazing. it was -- it just felt triumphant like we didn't let this horrible thing happen to us rule our future, you know. >> and the question everyone is asking now, what's next? what do you do next to top this? >> about five years ago buzzfeed did a profile on me, and in that i said i wanted to find a volcano to walk over and i found my active volcano and that's what i'll be doing next. >> a regular one isn't good. you need an active one. >> yes. >> nik and lijana, thank you both for a sleepless night last night and a breathless night last night for a lot of people.

love is blind. you guys we'll turn to our "gma" cover story. it's a medical breakthrough for won struggling with low sexual desire. the fda has just approved a new drug called vyleesei to heighten a woman's sex drive. dr. laura berman is here to tell us all about it. good morning to you. good to have you here. [ applause ] >> good morning. >> so experts say that 1 in 10 women are affected by low sexual desire. this drug for women, a lot of people say was a long time coming. >> long time coming. this is such a huge issue that affects the quality of life of so many women and their relationships and we're 20 years behind men. there's only been one other fda approved medication that, you know, had a lukewarm reception because of some of the side effects and contraindications so this is huge news for women that our sex lives and desire is finally important enough to get
8:16 am
some things through the fda for the medical causes. >> you say 20 years, and viagra was approved more than 20 years ago, so like we said, a long time coming. >> a long time coming. >> that is at the root of this? what causes this? >> this is why i think it's taken so long is that we're -- women are beautiful complicated creatures. it's our blessing but it's also kind of a curse sexually and so when you're looking particularly at women's sexuality it's like a ven diagram, the emotional factors, relationship factors and medical factors, happening all at once, and interacting with each other in a really nonlinear way. so how she's feeling about herself, her body, the person she's with, how close she's feeling, as well as her body and the medical aspects that are going on, are all important. and you have to look at it like a giant picture puzzle. >> there is a lot at play there. >> yeah. >> how does this new drug work? >> well, it's believed to
8:17 am
stimulate the dopamine production so in a new relationship when you can't get enough of each other you're actually making a lot of dopamine and as a therapist what i often have couple does when they want to kind of create more desire is go do adventurous things out of their comfort zone because that stimulates dopamine. this treatment stimulates dopamine as well. >> what do we know about potential side effects? >> well, the main side effects reported are headaches and nausea. about 40% of women had nausea although very few of them, you know, only, like, 19% dropped out of the trial. so it wasn't so bad. 80% to 90% of them want to keep going after the clinical trial. the main thing is high blood pressure. it can increase blood pressure, so if you have high blood pressure or any heart issues, you definitely want to be very careful and maybe not take this, but you want to talk to your doctor, as well as your sex therapist. >> good we're talking about it. >> yay, women. it's about time. >> michael, back to you. >> all right. i got it. now to that influencer couple's engagement going viral on instagram. the elaborate propose that spanned multiple countries over
8:18 am
multiple days has many people wondering if the sprise is really just a stunt and, amy, you have more. >> reporter: yes. a lot of people wondering that, michael. the popular fashion influencer took her nearly 200,000 followers along the extravagant, 72-hour engagement journey traveling around the globe, and as the hunt for love unfolded, so did the shoutouts to numerous brands, many to wonder if the whole thing was just staged. it had all the makings of a fairy tale proposal. the sobbing, the dancing, the bended knee, a chateau in france. gabriel grossman a vp at morgan stanley popping the question to his longtime girlfriend the fashion influencer and director of brand partnerships at goop, marissa fuchs, aka, the fashion ambitionist. capping a three-day long
8:19 am
scavenger hunt that took her from new york city to the hamptons to miami and paris but the proposal started to generate skepticism when a highly produced advertising pitch was leaked that showed how grossman may have been hoping to score some sponsorships for the romantic moment. brian peterson is an advertising executive who saw the deck. >> her friends and fiance, they put together a professional deck that had all the details. a hashtag in there. she knew a deck existed but i don't think we'll know for sure. >> reporter: grossman along with help from a social media expert and friends of fuchs, had been offering the engagement to marketers at various brands and agencies but claims his bride-to-be never knew about it. they both maintained the proposal was a surprise for her. fuchs tells "the new york times" i was completely and utterly in shock. i was so mind blown that this was happening. grossman told "the new york times" he paid a little under $50,000 himself on dinners, hotels and flights but did end up scoring handouts from fly wheel, glamsquad, and a discount
8:20 am
on jewelry from jade trau. he paid $4,000 for the pieces but would have been retailed $10,000 or $12,000. >> as the space is getting me and more competitive, the influencers, they need to be more personal and do things to reach audiences in a way that they wouldn't think of before. >> reporter: the couple's story showing how influencers continue to push the envelope in a world where personal or intimate moments can become opportunities to try to monetize. >> did she know or did she not know? and that is what brands are really coping with today, they're trying to make sure they're still authentic. >> now this epic scavenger hunt ended with a wedding ceremony in paris with marisa's grandmother's emerald cut diamond ring. however, as of right now, none of the couple's posts on their social media accounts are using the hashtags ad or sponsored. goop said it was only associated with the bride's personal brand and was entirely separate from goop. i'm exhausted after this story. >> if it is an ad you do have to disclose it.
8:21 am
>> exactly. and authenticity is what people are looking for in these days. >> all right. >> who knows? we might never know. >> make your own decision on that one. now over to ginger. what you got? >> can we get a discount? i'm kidding. i'm kidding. how about we do a little "gma" moment? this one is just a question for you, right? what's better than one dog? two. aww. there's an even sweeter story. the older dog is the one underneath. a new puppy on top. he just lost his best friend. also a burmese mountain dog and they got a new one. we just love this, covering up your friend. keeping it happy on a monday and cuddly. please t

8:23 am
multiple fertility doctors declined to help her get pregnant because of her weight offering no other explanation. at 317 pounds gina not only suffering from the heart of break of not having a child but the pain of being called fat. >> i had heard all those negative comments from the first two physicians, i just had to change my body. >> look at the train. >> reporter: gina says there was no reason to refuse her. her blood pressure and cholesterol levels were normal. but thinking that lowering her weight was the only solution she opted to have bariatric surgery to lose the weight. but even then she was unable to get pregnant. virginia kohl-smith chronicling the story. >> the message we need to get out there is that you can have a healthy pregnancy at any weight. >> reporter: her journey leading her to a new facility and fertility doctor who had another approach. trying an iui, increasing the number of sperm to reach the fallopian tubes. >> iui is a less invasive
8:24 am
treatment than ivf, and that's how i conceived logan. >> reporter: giving birth in 2018, a dream finally realized. all right, so let's bring in dr. jessica shepherd, an ob/gyn and you deal with fertility issues with your patients all the time. >> all the time. >> how do you explain this connection between weight and fertility? >> we do know there is a correlation when we look at weight and infertility, and i think what we do know from the american society of reproductive medicine and the society of reproductive technology is they really haven't made any recommendations when we look at fertility treatments and declining for women who might be obese. so the real issue, it's not necessarily just getting pregnant when we have infertility. it's also staying pregnant. >> yep. >> and also having a healthy pregnancy and we want healthy mom and baby at the end. >> absolutely. i want to talk specifically about gina for a second. her story being dismissed by doctors because of her weight. do you hear about that? is that common?

>> yeah, you know, her story is actually not unique, and that's unfortunate. so when we look at a physician and a patient relationship, the real heart of the matter is the emotional aspect of it. for anyone who walks in with a health condition or, you know, for infertility in this matter, you want to walk away, and that patient wants to feel empowered and motivated to do the things that they need to do, and that's not how she felt. gina felt she was dismissed, and that's the type of relationship we don't want to see in a relationship, but also walng away from the situation. what can she take from it? she felt, you know, defeated at that point. >> i was very surprised to hear that not one doctor, but this was happening to her. so let me ask, do you have suggests for our audience who might be struggling with weight and fertility? what can they do right now? >> i think when we look at weight and infertility, i think this is something that affects one in eight couples, infertility so it is a common thing we see when women walk into our offices but what we want them to take away, we want them to be healthy and overall
8:26 am
healthy and not to focus on things that are going to make them feel defeated such as doing fad diets but look at it from a mind/body connection, and what are they doing the take in the fact that i have infertility, and i need to lose weight, and every patient should be empowered to get a second opinion. >> thank you so much you so much. great tips. really appreciate it. coming up, everybody, zendaya is with us live. [ applause ] we'll be right back. it's great stuff. thank you very much. it's great stuff. thank you so much.
