According to the Daily News, Robin Roberts, 53, 'Good Morning America' anchor, revealed on Facebook that she is gay by mentioning her longtime girlfriend Amber, Dec. 29, 2013.

"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 entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."

This was the first time Roberts publicly acknowledged her longstanding same-sex relationship.

I am grateful for the many prayers and well wishes for my recovery. I return every one of them to you 100 fold."

"I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life.

Roberts survived a bone marrow transplant in 2012 to treat myelodysplastic syndrome, a disorder spurred by her treatment for breast cancer. The treatment included undergoing chemotherapy to destroy her diseased bone marrow.

Roberts' girlfriend, Amber Laign, is a licensed massage therapist who specializes in treating patients recovering from injuries, sources said. The couple met through mutual friends and have been in a committed relationship, living together in New York, for more than ten years.

"On this last Sunday of 2013 I encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for too," she wrote on Facebook. "Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year."
