Robin Roberts thanks girlfriend on Facebook

Los Angeles - ABC News anchor Robin Roberts thanked her girlfriend, Amber Laign, in a post published on her Facebook page on Sunday, Heather Riley of ABC confirmed.

The message came after Roberts' battle with a life-threatening illness.

This is the first time the "Good Morning America" anchor has publicly acknowledged her 10-year, same-sex relationship with Laign, a massage therapist from the San Francisco Bay Area.

Roberts reached a 100 day benchmark on Sunday following a bone marrow transplant she underwent in September 2012 to treat the blood and bone marrow disease.

In May, Roberts will write a memoir telling the story of her battle with the illness and lessons she continues to learn after her return to "Good Morning America" in February.
