In late December, Robin Roberts posted a Facebook message that expressed gratitude to all that have helped her through a difficult period in her life, one that included a bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder.
The Good Morning America anchor also referenced girlfriend Amber Laign for the first time publicly in the post, coming out as gay.
Today, meanwhile, the anchor shared a photo of herself and her long-time partner at a wedding in Louisiana over the holidays.
Said Roberts on air:
"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 then noted that everyone looks "so happy," asking Robin whether sharing such personal information with the world has been a "good experience."
And a beaming Roberts made it clear the answer is a profound YES.
"I have never been happier and healthier than I am right now," she said. "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."
Roberts and Laign - who works as a a licensed massage therapist - have been together for 10 years.
