robin roberts amber laign good morning america Robin Roberts shares first pic of girlfriend Amber Laign on 'GMA'Robin Roberts made headlines over the holidays when she came out publicly for the first time. The “Good Morning America” anchor wrote a year-end message on Facebook thanking her family and friends, including her long-time girlfriend Amber Laign, a massage therapist originally from the San Francisco area.

On Monday (Jan. 6), Roberts was back from vacation on “GMA” and, during a segment where she talked about her travels, shared a family photo that includes herself and Laign. The picture is from her niece Judith‘s wedding in Baton Rouge, LA, with Laign standing to the right of Roberts.

The “GMA” anchor didn’t make a big issue out of talking about her girlfriend, instead thanking everyone for their support.

“I have never been happier or healthier than I am right now. 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,” says Roberts. “I’m very happy for the support and it’s just letting everybody know to reflect on that God puts you where you are right now and be grateful for it.”
