Robin Roberts Comes Out The Closet


Robin Roberts 13th Annual USTA Serves Opening Night Gala

The sexuality of Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts never sparked conversation, considering she was preoccupied battling cancer.  However, yesterday (Dec. 29),  she subtly revealed within a lengthy Facebook post her sexual orientation as she reflected on her personal journey with cancer.

“Flashback 12/29/12–Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today when I reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant,” the 53-year-old newscaster wrote in her FB post. “Reading this comforts me and I hope the same for you: “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present. At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude.”

Roberts went on to thank the hospital staff, family and friends, and most importantly, long-term girlfriend Amber.

“I am grateful to God, my doctors and nurses for my restored good health. I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life. I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together. I am grateful for the many prayers and well wishes for my recovery. I return every one of them to you 100 fold. On this last Sunday of 2013 I encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for too. Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year. Peace, love, and blessings to all..XO.”
