'Happy,' 'healthy' Robin Roberts shares photo of girlfriend

When Robin Roberts attended a niece's recent wedding, the girlfriend she publicly acknowledged in December was right by her side.

The "Good Morning America" co-anchor shared a family photograph from the Baton Rouge nuptials on Twitter January 5, calling the event a "great way to end a two-week vacation."

When Roberts returned to work at "GMA" on Monday morning, she confirmed that her smile in the photo says it all: "I have never been happier or healthier than I am right now."

Roberts' 2013 wasn't easy, as she recovered from a bone marrow transplant conducted after she was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder in 2012. So when the end of the year came around, Roberts said she was filled with gratitude, and wanted to share that with the world on Facebook.

"Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today..when I reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant," Roberts wrote on December 29. "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 sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life. I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."

On "GMA" Monday, Roberts explained that her thankfulness for all the support she'd received over the past year bubbled over into the public post, with her intent being to tell "everyone all that I'm grateful for, including my girlfriend Amber, who loved me through a very difficult year. I'm very happy for the support, and it's just letting everybody know that, reflect on what got you to where you are right now, and be grateful."

    As you yourself are to be respected, respect all others too. Mind your own business and worry about your own life. I'm happy that Robin is happy.

    At the end of the day it's all about LOVE – who you LOVE, why you LOVE is none of my concern – just LOVE – I beleive in God, so I'll let God who is LOVE, be God and I congradulate anyone who express the ability to LOVE.

    I don't care that Robin Roberts is gay... I mean, it is her life... she isn't hurting anyone. But the way she has herself hanging on the groom... it makes it look like she is supposed to be the center of attention, not the married couple.

    What's a shame is how many of you people think you're God, passing judgement. I thought the bible teaches to love all. SMH.

      I really think you should take some time and read for yourself. You are correct that love is a major theme of the New Testament , but so are the ways that people should live. The bible is quite clear about how we should live and what is expected from those that claim belief in God.

      America has become a festering cesspool since the likes of "yup" and "Grady" continue to bring it down with their antiquated prejudices and bigotry.

    • Sympathetic, but your day is over

      If you were part of the caucasion religious capitalist class, I can feel your distress witnessing that society disappear. Welcome to the new multiethnic secular socialist America. But keep working: We are relying on wealth re distribution to fund this until the debt thing collapses it all into a violent seething end.

    Robin & Amber: i am so proud of you. I hope we will hear about your marriage soon. Jennifer Hudson was asked recently who is her favorite gay friend? She said Walter, who is her assistant and a person she had known since six grade. That thought made Jennifer think about how she could BLESS such a devoted friend. God's inspiration caused her to GIVE Walter his very own home. So much for the you devil worshipers who had no tolerance for people differences

      No, it is YOU who is sick. You have a black heart and an ugly soul because of your hatred. The ugliness has permeated your physical being, making you a repulsive person to look at and listen to.

      That almost made sense, Patty. Typical muddle brained bigot who can't form a coherent thought. Hatred is like brain cancer, Patty.

    CNN comments have become as hateful and bigoted as FOX comments.
