Ann Romney is guest-hosting "Good Morning America" next Wednesday.

ABC says the wife of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will be on hand at the morning news program for its 8 a.m. (Eastern time) hour. Joining George Stephanopoulos at the anchor desk, Mrs. Romney will be filling in for co-anchor Robin Roberts, who is on extended medical leave.

ABC says it is in discussions with first lady Michelle Obama for a similar guest appearance when her schedule allows. Both Ann Romney and Michelle Obama took high-profile speaking roles at the political conventions this year. Could this be round two of the ongoing battle for the "Mom vote"?

Stephen Colbert, Oprah Winfrey and the cast of "Modern Family" have previously been announced to substitute for Roberts.
