GMA's Robin Roberts Speaks About Girlfriend On-Air For First Time

Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts gave her girlfriend Amber Laign a sweet shout out as she spoke about her on-air for the first time today, Jan. 6.


Robin said, "I have never been happier or 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."

Robin also showed this picture of the couple at her niece's wedding over the holidays; Amber's to the right of Robin in the photo.

Roberts came out publicly via Facebook at the end of December; she's been in a relationship with Amber for the last ten years.

Way to go Robin. I have had love in my heart for you for a long time. I prayer for you when boulders appeared on your path and still do. I have to say that my love and respect for you as increased immensely the last few day. I was in my mid fifties when I came out. I'm now almost 70. Still no friend or partner but I must say I'm still thrilled I did. Love, prayers and my God abundantly bless you.
