Just like we were not too surprised when Anderson Cooper, Rosie O'Donnell and Sam Champion revealed that they were gay, it is not a shock that Robin Roberts has come out. I feel like we have been waiting for this confirmation for the longest time but then again, is it our business? The "Good Morning America" host and cancer survivor took to Facebook to talk about all the good in her life for 2013, including love Amber Laign.
"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 posted today. The couple have been together for a decade now with Laign working as a massage therapist; she also has a private practice (old job Robin!) where she treats patients recovering from injuries. She also celebrated her dog, KJ who was not allowed to be in the house post-surgery Roberts underwent for myelodysplastic syndrome. "Flashback 12/29/12. Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today ... when I reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant ... and KJ was finally allowed to come back home." She then concluded her post with these inspiring words as she is such an inspiration for always keeping a warm smile on her face despite going through six years of hell! "Reading this comforts me and I hope the same for you. 'If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.' At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude." We are grateful that she is here to celebrate life as we celebrate with her!
