“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 wrote. Roberts has survived a breast cancer diagnosis, and a rare blood disorder diagnosis. After a health break in 2012, she returned to “Good Morning America” on Feb. 20.

According to a Dec. 30 TMZ report, including photos, the couple’s relationship is no secret. Sources told TMZ that everyone in Roberts’ personal and professional life knew she was gay and in a 10-year relationship with massage therapist Laign, whom she met in San Francisco through mutual friends.

As noted in Roberts’ Facebook post, Laign was “utterly devoted” to Roberts when she went through both her breast cancer and myelodysplastic syndrome. Laign, whose massage practice specializes in helping people with injuries has been described a “rock” to the “Good Morning America” anchor during her illnesses.

The New York Daily News observes that Roberts and Laign have been photographed together several times, and have attended high profile red carpet events together. Laign was on hand to support Roberts as she received the Arthur Ashe Award at the ESPYS in July.

Several fans have added their support to Roberts and Laign’s relationship. First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted, “.@RobinRoberts, I am so happy for you and Amber! You continue to make us all proud. -mo”
