Roberts posted this on her Facebook wall "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together."

Shortly after the announcement, ABC also released a statement saying "“We love Robin and Amber, who we have all known for a long time. We were so touched by Robin’s Facebook message today and so thankful for all the loving support she has in her life.”

According to TMZ, everyone knew Robin was gay for quite some time and that this news was really nothing new. Robin and Amber have been together for 10 years in which Amber was there by her lover's side through her battle with breast cancer in 2007 and Myelodysplastic Syndrome in 2012.
