Good Morning America” Hosts Unforgettable Beach-Themed Bachelorette Bash for Robin Roberts and Fiancée Amber Laign
Love was in the air on the set of “Good Morning America” as Robin Roberts and her soon-to-be spouse, Amber Laign, reveled in a tropical-themed bachelorette party. The morning show’s crew, along with close friends and family, celebrated the couple’s impending September nuptials.
Transforming the studio into a paradise, complete with palm trees and a serene blue sky backdrop, the excitement was palpable. “We’ve decked out our set for Robin and Amber’s bachelorette party. They haven’t seen anything yet,” teased Lara Spencer before the couple’s grand entrance.
Amidst the anticipation, a group of Robin’s and Laign’s loved ones gathered, sporting colorful dresses and matching blue button-down shirts adorned with “RA” patches. Actresses like Niecy Nash-Betts set the mood, beckoning the couple with infectious enthusiasm, “Let’s get them out here. Robin and Amber, please come check it out. We know that Key West is your happy place so we threw a party with a beach theme.”
Amidst cheers and applause, Robin, 62, entered wearing a bridal white blazer, white lace pants, and heels. Amber, her devoted partner, looked radiant in a white jumpsuit. The festive silver sashes around their waists added an extra touch of flair.
Warm smiles and embraces greeted the couple as they mingled with their guests, a star-studded group including Food Network’s Carla Hall, ABC news anchors Deborah Roberts, Diane Sawyer, Gayle King, Juju Chang, and Robin’s sister, Sally-Ann Roberts.
Taking a moment to capture the significance of the occasion, Spencer asked Laign how she felt. “Amber, will you tell everybody… how does it feel to see your bride tribe together to celebrate you?” Laign’s response was filled with genuine emotion, “Amazing. This is just incredible.”
Radiating positivity, Robin chimed in, spotting familiar faces among the crowd and exchanging enthusiastic greetings.
Earlier, the festivities began with the group’s journey to the party on the “Bachelorette Express,” an exciting venture led by Nash-Betts. “This is going to be a wild ride, Robin. We got your sister Sally-Ann, some of your closest friends, and even En Vogue,” quipped the spirited star.
The broadcast concluded with a memorable performance by the R&B girl group. Along the way, the show also touched on poignant moments, such as when co-host George Stephanopoulos asked, “Could 14-year-old Robin Roberts have imagined she’d be having a bachelorette party on national television?” Robin’s response was filled with sincerity, “Uh-uh, no. Especially to a woman.”
Robin and Amber’s journey has been one of courage and growth. After eight years of dating, Robin publicly acknowledged her sexuality and her love for Amber, a journey that began with a blind date in 2005. The couple’s love endured even through the challenges, including a rough year battling breast cancer.
As the party concluded, GMA contributor Tory Johnson presented Robin with a heartfelt gift: a personalized cutting board etched with a treasured family recipe. Emotional yet grateful, Robin wiped away tears, touched by the thoughtfulness of her sister Dorothy’s gesture.
Through all the ups and downs, Robin and Amber’s love story remains a testament to resilience, support, and embracing the joyous moments life has to offer. Their journey of love continues, as they embrace the next chapter with open hearts and the promise of marriage in the coming year.
