Is Robin Roberts engaged? Sources say the Good Morning America host may be taking the next step with longtime girlfriend, Amber Laign.
While Roberts' camp has yet to confirm reports, there are stories of marriage and even a possible baby in the couple's near future.
Shortly after Christmas, Robin Roberts posted a touching message to her Facebook thanking Laign, the longtime girlfriend many never knew she had.
"I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together," she wrote.
Roberts and her family have made it through very trying times since her time on the top-rated morning show.
The 53-year-old survivor beat breast cancer, and is now publicly battling a life-threatening bone marrow disease known as MDS. Laign, a reported licensed massage therapist, was always right by her side.
"There were days when Robin literally didn't have the strength to drink a glass of water, and Amber was there for her at Robin's Manhattan apartment, feeding her ice chips and wiping the perspiration from her forehead," a close friend to the couple reportedly told Star Magazine.
When Roberts, who constantly thanks her fans and family for support, included Laign in the public show of gratitude, it was her modest way of coming out.
"The next step will be the announcement or their engagement--and then a glorious wedding," the source also said. "They're totally devoted to each other."
