Robin Roberts Talks About Girlfriend, Shows Photo On-Air

Robin Roberts discussed her girlfriend Amber on-air for the first time on Monday's "Good Morning America."

The "GMA" co-host came out publicly in December 2013, thanking her "long time girlfriend" in a Facebook post in which she reflected on her year.

Roberts opened up about the decision upon returning from holiday break on Monday, Brian Stelter reported. "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," she said.

The couple has been together for 10 years, according to People magazine. Amber Laign is a licensed massage therapist from the San Francisco Bay area.

Roberts said Monday that the highlight of her vacation was attending her niece Judith's wedding in Baton Rouge. She shared a photo of herself and Laign (to the right) at the wedding with Roberts' family.
