In a conversation about setting intentions for the new year, the Good Morning America host, 62, told motivational speaker and author Gabby Bernstein on Monday that she wants to wed her longtime partner, Amber Laign.
Roberts, who has been with Laign since 2005, first shared that her partner had been battling breast cancer early last year.
By July, the couple were thrilled to share the news that Laign had completed her radiation treatments.
“Sweet Amber,” Robins captioned the clip. “Completing radiation, a very important phase of her treatment! We both thank you for all your well wishes and prayers.”
The veteran broadcaster keenly felt her partner’s illness, having been diagnosed with breast cancer herself in 2007.
In April, Roberts opened up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show about Laign’s breast cancer diagnosis.
“I haven’t talked about it much, but with you, I will,” Roberts told host Ellen DeGeneres, as her voice wavered. “She’s doing well, which is great.”
Roberts has also battled myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a rare blood and bone-marrow disease that required a bone marrow transplant in 2012. But her own health difficulties didn’t prepare Roberts for seeing Laign go through treatment.
