The Good Morning America host sat down with motivational speaker and author Gabby Bernstein on Monday, January 2 and shared her hopes to wed her longtime girlfriend, Amber Laign, later this year.
In a video shared on Instagram, Bernstein is seen asking Roberts about her intentions for 2023. The GMA host replies, "I'm hesitating because I haven't said it out loud yet. I'm saying 'yes' to marriage. We're getting married this year."
Bernstein encouraged Roberts to create a vision board for the wedding, meditate on it, and trust in the process. Roberts responded, "I'm meditating on the marriage, not the wedding."
"All right, there you go, even better," Bernstein added. "Thank you for teaching me now. Yes, meditate on the feeling of what it is that you want to cultivate not just on that day but in that union, and really bringing forth all that positive energy to that marriage."
The couple has been together since 2005, which is when mutual friends set them up on a blind date. Even though this has been in talks for a while, wedding plans have been on pause while Laign battles with breast cancer. The couple announced the battle at the beginning of 2022. By July, Roberts announced that Laign had successfully undergone radiation and thanked supporters for their prayers and well wishes.
Roberts herself experienced breast cancer in 2007 and also battled a rare blood and bone marrow disease called myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). The latter resulted in a bone marrow transplant in 2012. On Laign's radiation, Roberts said, "I went through it twice, barely shed a tear. I'm in a puddle every time I think about what Amber is going through. But she is being so courageous and is handling it extremely well."
