She’s been dating her girlfriend Amber Laign for the past decade, and Robin Roberts couldn’t be happier to be out of the closet.
Following her December 29th Facebook announcement that she’s gay, the much-loved television personality openly chatted about her lady love today (January 6) on “Good Morning America.”
Roberts shared a photo from her niece’s recent wedding and explained, "Next to me is my girlfriend, Amber, and my sister-in-law, Cynthia, and my brother, Butch. And it was a glorious, glorious time that weekend."
Co-anchor George Stephanopoulos replied, "You all look so happy there. And Robin, it was no surprise to any of us, but in your end of year post, you did tell everyone about Amber and about your relationship. I hope that was a good experience for you."
Robin gushed, "I have never been happier and healthier than I am right now. And my year-end post was just full of gratitude and just telling everyone all that I'm grateful for, including my girlfriend Amber, who really loved me through a difficult year."
