Robin Roberts is loving life.

After recovering from a rare blood disorder and announcing her relationship with longtime girlfriend Amber Laign, the Good Morning America anchor, 53, said she feels better than ever.

“I have never been happier or healthier than I am right now,” Roberts said on Monday’s show.

“And my year-end post was just full of gratitude and just telling everyone all that I’m grateful for including my girlfriend Amber, who really loved me through a very difficult year, and I’m very happy for the support and it’s just letting everybody know that, ‘reflect on what got you to where you are right now and be grateful for where you are.’ ”

Roberts also shared a family photo from her niece’s wedding that included Laign, her girlfriend of 10 years, at her side.

“The highlight, my dear niece Judith, her wedding and the family was all together in Baton Rouge over the weekend,” she said. “It was a glorious, glorious time.”
