Amber Laign is a professional massage therapist and a fashion geek. She is best known as a longtime girlfriend of an American television broadcaster, Robin Roberts.
Their romance began when the two met on a blind date in 2005 and have lived in wonders since then.
Tale Of Her Partner, Robin
Amber and Robin met through their mutual friends in San Francisco back in July 2005. The couple is in a dating relationship for almost 13 years. Amber has been with Robin through thick and thin and battled Robin's health issues.
Even though they were dating for a long time, Robin revealed that she was a gay woman and was in a relationship with Amber only in December 2013. In a Facebook post on 29 December 2013, she said,
"I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."
Back in late 2013, Robin was recovering from her treatment of the myelodysplastic syndrome. Amber and Robin, who possess a 14-year age difference, attended Robin’s niece Judith's wedding in Baton Rouge in their winter vacation of 2013.
Robin was previously diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2007 and completed eight chemotherapies until January 2008.
Since Robin's announcement, Amber has made public appearances with her partner Robin.
The duo attended GLAAD Media Awards on 5 May 2018. Robin presented Special Recognition Award to Gloria Carter, the mother of Jay-Z. Gloria was honored for publicly coming out as gay in the Jay-Z album Smile.
Robin, who had undergone treatment for myelodysplastic syndrome, thinks that her birthday is on 20 September, the day of her transplant, rather than her actual birthday on 23 November.
So during her 50th birthday, she celebrated the big day with her licensed massage therapist partner Amber.
She recalled the moment with E Online and said that during her 50th, her partner Amber heard her moaning about the party, and Robin told her that she wanted to dance on the beach.
The duo then went to Turk's and Caicos, but the pair was thrilled to celebrate the birthday party despite the rain.
During the Christmas weekend in December 2018, she and Amber went to Asian countries and visited South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.
On their trip, the twosome bought warmer gear at the airport and traveled to Seoul.
At Christmas, the duo was in Vietnam enjoying the pool, and the next day, they went to Thailand and safely returned home to celebrate the New Year. Together they also adopted a fur baby named Lukas.
