Robin Roberts and her long-term partner Amber Laign have married in a backyard ceremony

In a heartwarming and joyous celebration, Robin Roberts, the beloved co-anchor of Good Morning America, tied the knot with her longtime partner, Amber Laign. Surrounded by their loved ones, the couple exchanged vows in a magical garden ceremony on September 8. This beautiful moment marks the culmination of their enduring love story that began back in 2005 when they met on a blind date arranged by mutual friends.

Reflecting on the wedding, Roberts shared her happiness with her followers on Instagram, saying, “An intimate, magical wedding ceremony in our backyard followed by a joyous reception…ohhhh the dancing!! We are immensely grateful to all for making it a day and a night to remember. Honeymoon here we come!”

Over the course of their 18-year relationship, Roberts and Laign have been a pillar of support for each other through life’s ups and downs. From grieving the loss of loved ones to triumphing over breast cancer and myelodysplastic syndrome, they have shown unwavering commitment and strength as a couple.

During the challenges of the pandemic, the couple decided to turn their long-held marriage aspirations into reality. Seizing the moment, they shared their proposal at their favorite Connecticut restaurant, bonding over calamari rings. Roberts fondly recalls the unconventional proposal, saying, “We took the calamari rings and we slapped them on each other’s fingers and we just proposed to one another. Now looking back, it was pretty fitting for us… it was just us hanging out in our little hole-in-the-wall Mexican spot and saying, ‘Let’s go. Let’s do it.’”

While the official proposal took place in 2022, Roberts revealed the exciting news at the beginning of 2023. When asked about her “yes” for the year, Roberts opened up about their upcoming wedding plans and the meaningful journey they had embarked on together.

Robin and Amber credit their strong partnership and unwavering trust for their enduring relationship. They have learned to navigate life’s challenges side by side, supporting each other through thick and thin. Their unity is a precious gift that they cherish deeply.
