GMA host Robin Roberts shocked no one when she came out as a lesbian on her Facebook page last month.
“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 wrote.
This morning, Roberts elaborated on this elusive Amber character, telling her GMA co-hosts: “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.”
According to People magazine, Roberts and her girlfriend Amber Laign have been together for 10 years. Laign is a licensed massage therapist from the San Francisco Bay area. The women are 14 years apart. Anyone who knows us, knows we’re all for those May-December relationships. Cheers to the happy couple!
