“Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts married her longtime partner, massage therapist Amber Laign on Friday, Sept. 8.
Roberts and Laign each wore wedding gowns custom-made by designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka at their ceremony, which was held in the backyard of their home and officiated by Roberts’ childhood pastor.
Roberts wrote on Instagram: “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!”
Roberts’ and Laign’s 18-year romance started with a blind date set up by mutual friends. Over nearly two decades together, Roberts and Laign overcame countless health and personal obstacles together: grieving the losses of parents, and each dealing with bouts with breast cancer, as well as Roberts’ lifesaving bone marrow transplant in 2012. They were engaged at the end of 2022, deciding to marry while eating at a favorite restaurant together in Connecticut.
