Although some Good Morning America viewers might’ve discovered Robin Roberts was in a same-sex relationship for the first time on Sunday when she publicly acknowledged her longtime girlfriend, Amber Laign, in a reflective Facebook post ahead of the new year, it’s been known for some time over at ABC.
Roberts has the support of her colleagues over at GMA and as one put it, they’re thankful she has a loving support system considering her health struggles.
"We love Robin and Amber, who we adore and have all known for a long time," one network executive said, TV Guide reports. "We were touched by her Facebook message today and so thankful for the loving support she has in her life."
Roberts mentioned Laign, a massage therapist, in a sweet post, writing “I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together.”
Roberts has been in a relationship with Laign for a decade and it’s reported she hasn’t talked about her publicly due to her conservative religious family.
