Today Roberts received support from no less than the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama:
.@RobinRoberts, I am so happy for you and Amber! You continue to make us all proud. -mo— FLOTUS (@FLOTUS) December 30, 2013
The signature "-mo" indicates that the congratulatory tweet was written by the First Lady herself, not a staffer.
Roberts's coming out isn't the first time she's made LGBT news: she conducted the May 2012 interview where President Obama announced his support for marriage equality.
Roberts joins a bevy of out and proud LGBT news personalities including Thomas Roberts, Rachel Maddow, Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Jenna Wolfe, and Sam Champion.
