'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."
