Television news anchor Robin Roberts has revealed she plans to marry longtime partner Amber Laign this year.
During a segment on ABC’s Good Morning America, Roberts spoke to author Gabby Bernstein about her book Super Attractor: Methods for Manifesting a Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, where the two discussed what things they’ll “say yes” to in the new year.
When Bernstein asked Roberts what she plans to “say yes” to, the 62-year-old TV host hesitated before admitting that she “hasn’t said it out loud yet” what she hopes for in 2023.
“I’m saying yes to marriage. We’re getting married this year,” Roberts revealed. “It’s something we have talked about but we had put it off. She became ill and it is saying yes to that and that next chapter.”
Roberts then jokingly fanned herself with her cue cards, saying, “I can’t believe I just said that.”
Robin Roberts and partner Amber Laign have been in a relationship for 17 years. In February 2022, Roberts revealed that Laign was diagnosed with breast cancer in a video shared on her social media. Last July, Roberts praised Laign for completing radiation treatment.
Roberts was also diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 and myelodysplastic syndrome just five years later. She later underwent a bone marrow transplant and radiation treatment.
