(Srsly, what was with that sniffling??)
If you weren't paying attention over the weekend, you just might have missed the beautiful moment when Robin Roberts came out as gay in a touching message she posted on Facebook!
In the message, she was reflecting on her difficult health battle she was fighting and winning this time last year. And in the reflection, she revealed she has a longtime girlfriend, Amber.
Many were touched by this sweet message, including a few of her famous friends who sent out messages of love and support to Robin for coming out. They posted on Twitter:
Good morning, America! Congratulations, @RobinRoberts.
