ABC’s Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts is proud of her relationship with girlfriend Amber Laign, and she’s sharing her happiness with her fans.
Just a week after publicly acknowledging she’s in a same-sex relationship for the first time, Roberts has shared a photo of Laign with GMA viewers Monday morning.
Roberts shared a family photo of the couple at her niece Judith’s wedding in Baton Rouge over the weekend. She also told her co-host, George Stephanopoulos, she’s never been “happier or healthier.”
“The highlight [of my vacation] — my dear niece Judith, her wedding. The family was all together in Baton Rouge over the weekend, and we have a family photo,” she said 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.”
Us Weekly notes Stephanopoulos said to Roberts, “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.”
Roberts, who’s been with Laign for ten years, that the 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.”
