It’s been nearly a year since “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts came out of the closet and revealed her longtime girlfriend, Amber Laign, to the world. Since then, Roberts has rarely been spotted out in public with Laign. But that changed this week when Roberts showed up with her girlfriend at Glamour’s Women of the Year awards.
According to the Daily Mail, Roberts was honored at the ceremony for her triumphant battle against breast cancer and the rare bone marrow disease myelodysplastic syndrome. While on the red carpet, Roberts posed lovingly with Laign and the pair were even seen holding hands later on in the ceremony.
After receiving her honor, Roberts spoke with “ET” and explained that she represents many communities,
“I’m representing a whole lot of people,” she said. “Because everybody’s had something, has gone through a health challenge, financial, whatever … And I am just so proud to say that not only are we surviving, but we’re thriving as well.”
Well, Roberts is also representing one beautiful couple and we’re glad to see her and Laign out and about in the public eye, if only for a brief moment. – nicholas robinson
