On Dec. 29, 2013, Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts announced to the world that she was in a long-term relationship with her partner, Amber Laign. And almost a decade later, the lovebirds tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in their home garden in September 2023.

The women were introduced in July of 2005, and Robin detailed it all in her memoir, Everybody’s Got Something.

She recalled: “Mutual friends set us up on a blind date. I liked the fact that she had no idea who I was. She rarely followed sports, so she never saw me on ESPN, and her office mates at the time watched a different morning show … ouch!”

She continued: “[Amber] is extremely laid-back, no drama, no fuss. The main thing we have in common is positive energy. She sees the good in everyone.”
