Robin Roberts, the beloved face of Good Morning America, may have been absent from the show on Friday, August 11, but she hasn’t left her fans in the dark.

Over the weekend, the 62-year-old anchor had her upcoming wedding on her mind, joining her fiancée, Amber Laign, in attending a Mayo Clinic event on Friday. Roberts shared the joyous moment with her online followers, posting a photo of a dessert plate adorned with the words “Congratulations Robin & Amber.” The caption exuded gratitude and love for their Mayo Clinic family, along with well wishes for everyone’s weekend.

The following day, the couple received a heartwarming gift – a bouquet of vibrant purple and green flowers – from the National LGBTQ Task Force. Roberts, in an Instagram post on Saturday, August 12, expressed her appreciation for the timely gesture, as she and Laign were set to meet with their wedding planner to discuss floral arrangements for their ceremony and reception.

Despite her brief absence, Roberts will be back on GMA this week, ready to celebrate alongside viewers with an on-air bachelorette party. The special event, scheduled for Wednesday, August 16, has garnered excitement from fans and colleagues alike. In a recent promotional segment, George Stephanopoulos playfully questioned Roberts about her 14-year-old self imagining a national television bachelorette party, to which she responded with a grin, “No, especially not with a woman.”

The journey leading up to this celebratory moment has been a story of love, perseverance, and solidarity. Earlier this year, Roberts announced her plans to marry Laign after sharing 17 years of companionship. The couple’s love story began with a blind date in 2005, though it wasn’t until December 2013 that they publicly acknowledged their relationship. Roberts courageously opened up about her sexuality in a heartfelt Facebook post, expressing gratitude to her “longtime girlfriend, Amber,” while also sharing her recovery journey after a bone marrow transplant the previous year.

Life presented them with challenges, as both Roberts and Laign faced breast cancer diagnoses. In 2021, Laign’s strength was tested as she too was diagnosed with breast cancer. In a heartfelt video shared on X (formerly known as Twitter) in February 2022, Roberts stood by Laign, sharing her journey and the hurdles they had to overcome together. Laign’s surgery and chemotherapy journey became a testament to their resilience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

July brought a bright moment of victory as Laign completed her chemotherapy. Roberts shared a touching Instagram video capturing the symbolic moment when Laign rang the bell, a powerful tradition signifying the end of cancer treatment. Laign read a plaque before ringing the bell, signifying the end of her treatment journey and a new chapter of hope.

Roberts and Laign’s love story is one of triumph, unity, and love that has overcome numerous obstacles. As they gear up to say “I do” after all these years, their journey remains an inspiring testament to love’s enduring power.
