Robin Roberts has said that she's never been healthier or happier
since coming out lesbian.
Monday was Roberts' first day back on
ABC since she thanked her girlfriend in a Facebook post for standing
by her side during a tumultuous year, marking the first time Roberts
had publicly acknowledged her sexual orientation.
In discussing the “highlight” of
her vacation – her niece's wedding – Roberts shared a photo of
the wedding party which included herself and her partner of 10 years,
“There is Judith and her husband,
Tony, and my sister Dorothy, and Sally Anne, the mother of the bride,
and next to me is my girlfriend Amber and my sister-in-law Cynthia
and my brother Butch. And it was a glorious, glorious time,”
“You all look so happy there,”
George Stephanopoulos said. “And Robin, it was no surprise to any
of us, but in your end-of-year post you did tell everyone about Amber
and about your relationship. I hope that was a good experience for
“I have never been happier or
healthier than I am right now and my year-end post was just full of
gratitude and telling everyone all that I'm grateful for, including
my girlfriend Amber, who really loved me through a very difficult
year. And I'm very happy for the support,” she added.
