Robin Roberts marries Amber Laign after 18 years together

Robin Roberts, the anchor of “Good Morning America,” recently got married to her partner, Amber Laign, after being together for 18 years. Roberts confirmed the news on Instagram, sharing beautiful photos from their private and intimate wedding ceremony. She expressed her gratitude to everyone who made the day special and mentioned their plans for a honeymoon. Both Roberts, 62, and Laign, 49, looked stunning in white attire, with their hair styled elegantly. Their reception included their adorable Tibetan Spaniel Papillion mix, LuKas, who wore a black-and-white bowtie. The star-studded guest list at the wedding included Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, who gave their best wishes and advised the couple to marry their best friend.

Roberts spoke about their love story on a recent episode of “Good Morning America,” highlighting Laign’s support during her battle with breast cancer in 2007. Despite the early stage of their relationship, Laign stood by her side, showing immense support. Similarly, when Laign was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021, Roberts took on the role of caretaker. After undergoing radiation treatments, Laign’s health improved, and both women have been there for each other throughout their respective cancer battles.

Now, with their health challenges behind them, Roberts, who publicly came out as gay in 2013, expressed her excitement about celebrating their new chapter as wives with their loved ones. She emphasized that their marriage is a celebration of the love they already have and that they have been living their happily ever after through all the ups and downs.

The “Good Morning America” anchor tied the knot with her partner, Amber Laign, over the weekend after 18 years together.

Roberts confirmed the news via Instagram, sharing two stunning snaps from their private, low-key nuptials.

“An intimate, magical wedding ceremony in our backyard followed by a joyous reception…ohhhh the dancing!!” she gushed in the caption.

“We are immensely grateful to all for making it a day and a night to remember. Honeymoon here we come!”

Both Roberts, 62, and Laign, 49, wore white for the occasion, with their hair styled in gorgeous updos. Their reception also featured the couple’s Tibetan Spaniel Papillion mix, LuKas, dressed in a black-and-white bowtie.

“My mommies are MARRIED!!!! Married?……yes….married!!!👰🏾‍♀️👰✨,” a post on the pup’s Instagram page read.

The ceremony featured a star-studded guest list, including Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood. Prior to the big day, the country superstars — who wed in December 2005 — shared their best advice for Roberts and Laign on “GMA.”

“We are so happy that you’re getting married. Congratulations!” Yearwood, 58, said. “And we’ve been asked to tell you what we think the secret to a happy marriage is, because we’ve been at it for almost 18 years.”

Together, she and Brooks, 61, enthused, “Marry your best friend!”

And Laign seems to fit that bill for Roberts.

The newscaster opened up about their love story during a recent “GMA” broadcast, applauding the massage therapist for the support displayed in the early stages of her 2007 breast cancer battle.

“We had only been dating not even two years when I was diagnosed with breast cancer,” she said. “She could have bailed early on in the relationship. No one would have blamed her.”

Roberts fell into the role of caretaker herself when Laign — whom she met on a blind date in July 2005 — was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2021. The following year, the ABC star announced that her partner had completed radiation treatments.

“It was a rough year; her journey with breast cancer took some unexpected twists and turns, but she is doing really, really well,” she told “Entertainment Tonight” in March.

“Doctors said when it comes to treatment, it’s like women and shoes — they don’t always fit — and so they had to find the right fit for her with treatment.”

With their health challenges behind them, Roberts, who publicly came out as gay in December 2013, said on “GMA” last month that she was looking forward to celebrating her and Laign’s new chapter as wives with family and friends.

“Many people go into marriage hoping for and looking for what Amber and I already know we have, and so ours is a celebration,” she gushed.

“We’ve been living our happily ever after through all the ups and downs, so it’s a celebration.”
