“Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts made a stunning revelation earlier this week when she announced to the world that she’s been in a long-term relationship with a woman named Amber Laign for years. Since then, Roberts has been met with a flood of praise from fans for sharing even more of her personal life with the world. Now Roberts has even gotten the seal of approval from the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
After Roberts came out in her famous Facebook post, Obama sent a tweet to congratulate the “GMA” anchor on coming out of the closet.
.@RobinRoberts, I am so happy for you and Amber! You continue to make us all proud. -mo

Roberts didn’t respond online but we’re sure she got the message and like anyone would, was happy the first lady was rooting for her and her partner.
We’re happy that Michelle Obama is such a strong supporter of the LGBT community. Check out some other political LGBT allies below. – nicholas robinson
