Robin Roberts is gay and she made the announcement casually in a Facebook post. On Dec. 29, Roberts took to her Facebook page to post about a crucial day in her life: One year ago today marked 100 days post-transplant. As she reflected on the past year, Roberts wrote that she was thankful for her longtime girlfriend, thus coming out; albeit subtly.

"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 (sic)," Roberts wrote.

Many have known that Robin Roberts is gay even though she never "officially" came out. In many ways, her post was very candid and while she didn't want to make it about her sexuality, she certainly made sure that she put it out there and many are praising her for that. She isn't one to make a spectacle and she didn't -- which is nice.

Did you know that Roberts was gay? Are you surprised by the "news"? Do you think Roberts is going to get a lot of feedback following her subtle announcement?
