Roberts Thanks Long-Time Girlfriend
“Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts came out Sunday in a touching post thanking her “long time girlfriend.”
The LGBT community is becoming stronger in the morning news. ‘Good Morning America’ host Robin Roberts disclosed a relationship with a long time girlfriend via a Facebook post, in which she reflected on the past year. On Dec. 29, 2012, the news anchor celebrated 100 days post bone marrow transplant.
“At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude,” Roberts wrote. “I am grateful to God, my doctors and nurses for my restored good health. I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life. I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together.”
Amber Laign is a licensed massage therapist from the San Francisco Bay Area. She and Roberts met through mutual friends and have been together for 10 years.
