RumorFix pieced together some information on who Robin Roberts' girlfriend is. Amber and Robin met through mutual friends ten years ago and have maintained a relationship since then. Amber is originally from the Bay area and is a massage therapist who has her own private practice in New York. She attended the Swedish Institute of Health Sciences and LinkedIn revealed she once worked for the clothing store Bergen and Stevens.
Amber Laign was first brought to the forefront of the media after Robin Roberts addressed her sexuality in a heartwarming Facebook post Sunday.
Roberts wrote about Amber and the anniversary of her bone marrow transplant:
"I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."
The celebrity news source also had some photos of the couple together.

RumorFix noted in their report that the "two have been photographed together a few times — usually with other people — and have been the subject of rumors on gay and lesbian blogs for years."
Amber was seen with Robin when the "GMA" anchor won the ESPN’s Arthur Ashe Award For Courage. Amber was there with Robin's sister Sally Ann.
