‘GMA’ Host Robin Roberts Entering The New Year, “A Openly-Gay Woman,” Thanks To A Facebook Post & Her Dog!

“Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts, whose fight with myleodysplastic syndrome corresponded with a surge in the show’s ratings back in 2012, is the latest TV celebrity to open up about her sexuality following past reports about her living with a female.

For the first time, the 53-year-old ABC co-anchor woman officially disclosed details about her 10 year relationship with partner, Amber Laign via Facebook, this morning (Dec. 29).

In the Facebook post, Roberts said she was mulling her state a year ago, when she reached an important 100 day-milestone after undergoing a blood marrow transplant and being thankful in seeing her dog, KJ, again.

“Reading this comforts me and I hope the same for you: “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present,” she said. 

“At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude.

I am grateful to God, my doctors and nurses for my restored good health.

I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life.

I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together.”

She also added: 

“I am grateful for the many prayers and well wishes for my recovery. I return every one of them to you 100 fold.

On this last Sunday of 2013 I encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for too.

Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year.

Peace, love, and blessings to all.”

Roberts and Laign (a massage therapist from the Bay Area), reportedly met through mutual friends. Laign specializes in helping people recovering from injuries, reports Variety.

Roberts’ disclosure comes just days after a furor over anti-gay remarks made by reality star Phil Robertson, head of the A&E’s reality series “Duck Dynasty.”

During an interview with GQ magazine, Robertson cast aspersions on people in same-sex relationships and African-Americans, prompting a suspension by the cabler’s parent, A+E Networks, and a quick reversal of the decision – drawing anger from supporters of both Robertson and the groups he offended. As co-host of what is arguably the nation’s favorite morning program, Roberts may help fuel more discussion and debate in this latest clash of cultural values.
