First Lady Michelle Obama congratulated ABC’s Robin Roberts after the “Good Morning America” anchor came out.
Roberts came out in a Sunday Facebook post in which she reflected on the past year, thanking her loved ones — including her “long time girlfriend, Amber” — for supporting her during her battle with myelodysplastic syndrome.
“I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together,” Roberts wrote.
The First Lady said she is “so happy” for Roberts and her girlfriend, who “continue to make us all proud.”
Sounds like Robin has a friend in the FLOTUS!
