Several unconfirmed reports have surfaced online that Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts is gay and will wed her partner soon.

The 52-year-old is rumored to wed her longtime partner Storm Sahara, who is 23 years her junior. Sahara is reportedly an independent film producer and an activist in the LGBT community.

Sources gave Media Takeout an eyewitness account of seeing Roberts and Sahara together picking up a marriage certificate at Manhattan's City Clerks Office on March 25. According to the onlooker, their presence had the "entire place buzzing."

While no report has yet to reveal how long the couple have been together, a source told The National Enquirer the couple ended their relationship sometime last year but that the GMA anchor was working to win her back earlier this year. An insider said the split was caused by Sahara's preference for a discreet relationship.

"Storm didn't want to be in the spotlight, and the rela­tionship soured," the source said, in a report published on Feb. 27. "Robin was devastated, but understood why they broke up. Now that Robin has re­covered from her illness, she's going to try and get Storm back in her life." 

The source said that Roberts missed her partner so much while she underwent treatment to treat MDS, that she "vowed" to marry her if they reconciled.

"She realized over the course of her illness how much she truly loved Storm and vowed that if she made it through, she would not only rekindle their love - but she would ask Storm to marry her and have a gay wedding," the insider revealed.

Roberts returned to ABC's hit morning show on Feb. 20 exactly five months after she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat the rare blood disorder. Her donor was her older sister Sally-Ann Roberts, who is also an anchorwoman. Sally-Ann reports for WWL-TV, a CBS affiliate in New Orleans, La.

Robin could not contain her joy about returning to work when she opened GMA with her co-anchors George Stephanopoulos, Josh Elliott, Lara Spencer and weatherman Sam Champion.  

"I have been waiting 174 days to say this.... 'good morning America!' " she said.
