After battling a courageous fight against myelodysplastic syndrome, the Good Morning America host went on to publicly thank her loved ones, doctors and also announced that she is a lesbian. That was the first time she had come out to the media.
With her coming out, she also revealed her partner of many years.
She is Amber Laign, a massage therapist.Laign is now 39 years old and is 14 years younger than Roberts. They met through common friends on a blind date and are together since 2005.
Though Roberts is a famous woman who has authored her own life, Laign prefers to stay hushed about her personal life. Robert’s co-workers and friends were also understanding enough not to reveal Robert’s sexual identity to the public even when they knew it from a long time.
Roberts speaks highly of her girlfriend who remained very supportive through all the period when Roberts was undergoing the treatments. Roberts said,"There is no fuss with us. We're so happy. We've been happily in a relationship for 10 years and are looking forward to the next 10 after that."
