GMA Host Robin Roberts Comes Out as Gay, Michelle Obama Congratulates Her

In a post on her Facebook page, Good Morning America host Robin Roberts came out as gay. Robin was reflecting on the past year in which she underwent grueling treatment for myelodyspastic syndrome which she developed after chemotherapy to fight breast cancer. In the post, Robin thanked her longtime girlfriend Amber Laign.

Robin wrote said, "Flashback 12/29/12....Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today..when I reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant...and KJ was finally allowed to come back home.... 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."

Robin and Amber have been together for ten years. Amber is a licensed massage therapist who works with people recovering from injuries. First lady Michelle Obama tweeted her support to Robin and Amber and said Robin continues to "make us all proud."
