In a wide-ranging AARP cover story, Robin Roberts gushes about her life with partner Amber Laign.

The 54-year-old Roberts quietly came out in late 2013 when she thanked Laign in a Facebook post for standing by her side during a tumultuous year. She told AARP that Laign helped make her 50th birthday special.

“It was my 50th birthday celebration, and Amber had heard me moaning and groaning about some kind of party,” she recalled. “I'd told her all I wanted to do was dance on the beach. We were on Turks and Caicos. She set the whole thing up – a dance floor on the beach – as a surprise. But then it rained. Still, I was just thrilled that she heard me.”

The Good Morning America co-host added that she was looking forward to a second decade with Laign.

“There is no fuss with us. We're so happy. We've been happily in a relationship for 10 years and are looking forward to the next 10 after that,” she said.
