Another 'family' member has come out. Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts has publicly come out as gay via a Facebook post thanking co-workers, fans and friends for their support during her and after her bone marrow transplant.
The end-of-year message read in part "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together." Though Roberts didn't mention her girlfriend's last name, People magazine identified her as Amber Laign, a San Francsico-based massage therapist she met through friends a decade ago.
Michelle Obama gave a shout out to the happy couple, saying "I am so happy for you and Amber! You continue to make us all proud. -mo"
Roberts' Facebook post came on the 100th day of her recovery from the transplant.
