Just one week after publicly acknowledging she is gay, Robin Roberts revealed to the world a photo of her long-time girlfriend, Amber Laign.
On Monday morning, the Good Morning America host opened up about her girlfriend on the ABC morning show, sharing a photo of them posing at Roberts’ niece’s wedding in, Baton Rouge, La.
“The family was all together in Baton Rouge over the weekend … 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,” she said.
“You all look so happy there,” co-anchor George Stephanopoulos told Roberts. “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.”
The 53-year-old, who has been very open about her health battles, came out about her sexuality on December 29 in a touching Facebook message. In her end of the year post, the star wrote on the social media website: “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 is reportedly a licensed massage therapist from San Francisco; she and Roberts allegedly met through mutual friends.
