Robin Roberts Is Gay: Celebs React To Announcement
Robin has had one heck of a year. After battling cancer and showing the whole world her journey, we know she is one of the bravest women out there. Her new Facebook post showed just that when she publicly addressed her girlfriend, Amber for the firs time. Celebs were so proud of her and took to Twitter to show their support.
Good morning, America! Congratulations, @RobinRoberts.

Robin Roberts Comes Out On Facebook
We’re so happy for Robin! She posted the following sweet message after Christmas sharing everything she is thankful for:
Flashback 12/29/12….Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today..when I reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant…and KJ was finally allowed to come back home.
Reading this comforts me and I hope the same for you: “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”
At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude.
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.
I am grateful for the many prayers and well wishes for my recovery. I return every one of them to you 100 fold.
On this last Sunday of 2013 I encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for too.
Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year.
Peace, love, and blessings to all..XO
