Robin Roberts spoke for the first time on “Good Morning America” about her longtime girlfriend Amber Laign, sharing a photo as they posed together at a family wedding.
Roberts became emotional as she spoke about her, stating, “I have never been happier or healthier than I am right now”.
Robin Roberts talked about her Christmas vacation to the Turks and Caicos Islands with Laign, 39, revealing that the couple also attended the wedding of Roberts’ niece in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The 53-year-old host then shared a family wedding shot which included her girlfriend.
Robin addressed her Facebook post, explaining, “My year in post was just full of gratitude and telling everyone all that I’m grateful for, including my girlfriend Amber who really loved me through a very difficult year and I’m very happy for the support.”
Robin kept her romance with Amber Laign out of the spotlight for ten years, until she finally decided to go public.
Amber has quietly been by Robin’s side at a string of public events.
Amber and Robin live together at Robin’s multimillion dollar apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West side.
Cancer survivor Robin, 53, had the full backing of ABC on officially “coming out”.
An insider said, “This was all Robin, she gave ABC a heads up on Sunday morning and told them she was going to post her message on Facebook. Of course she had everyone’s support.”
