Robin Roberts is a very happy woman. Not only has she won battles concerning her health, she has someone in her life that has been her support system through it all. As US Weekly reports on Jan. 6, the “Good Morning America” anchor shared a photo of her and girlfriend Amber Laign on air and expressed more of how happy she is with life in general.
Just a week after Roberts came out publicly on a Facebook post in which she shared her gratitude for her health and those who are in her life, including Laign, Roberts shared a photo showing the couple posing with family at her nieces wedding in Baton Rouge, La.
The photo symbolized both togetherness and acceptance and Roberts told co-anchor George Stephanopoulos of how special the moment was for her.
“The highlight [of my vacation] – my dear niece Judith, her wedding. The family was all together in Baton Rouge over the weekend, and we have a family photo. Next to me is my girlfriend, Amber, and my sister-in-law, Cynthia, and my brother, Butch. And it was a glorious, glorious time that weekend.”
She went on to express the support she has received and that she “have never been happier or healthier” than she is now. Through the initial post posted on Facebook on the last Sunday of 2013, Roberts sent encouragement and wanted everyone to reflect on what they are grateful for.
Her own personal journey has been a battle, so it is great to see Robin Roberts at a place where she can freely smile and enjoy her life and those who fulfill that happiness.
