We could not be happier for Robin Roberts. After publicly coming out on on Jan. 6, she opened up to the ‘GMA’ family and viewers, showing off a photo of she and her girlfriend with her family at a wedding!
Robin Roberts continues to wow us with her bravery. After a difficult year fighting cancer, the Good Morning America anchor revealed she was a lesbian on Dec. 29, and is now sharing her love with the world! She revealed that she spent the holidays with her family, and shared a photo of she and Amber Laign, her longtime girlfriend. Then she added that she has “never been happier or healthier!”

When talking about her holiday vacation, Robin shared that the highlight was spending it with her family.
“The highlight, my dear niece, Judith, her wedding and the family was altogether in Baton Rouge over the weekend,” Robin said showing off the family photo — in it was Judith, her husband, Tony, Robin and Amber, Robin’s sisters, Dorothy, and Sally-Ann, the mother of the bride, and her sister-in-law, Cynthia, and brother, Butch.
George Stephanopoulos showed his support, saying, “You all look so happy there. 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.”
“I’m going to tell you all this and you know because you’ve had a front row seat [to] all that tumultuous year I had,” Robin replied.
From that, we heard one of the best things we could have asked for, which was followed by a much-deserved applause from the cast and crew of GMA:
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 very difficult year. I’m very happy for the support and it’s just letting everybody know that reflect on what got you to where you are right now and be grateful for where you are.
We’re so happy to hear that she’s feeling great! Here’s to a wonderful year for Robin and her family!
