“I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together," Roberts wrote.

Who Is Amber Laign?
Laign, Roberts’ significant other, remains a bit of a mystery. A massage therapist who hails from the San Francisco Bay Area, Laign reportedly works helping people recover from injuries. Originally from New Jersey, Laign, 39, studied massage therapy at The Swedish Institute of Health Sciences in 2008 and has been working as a licensed massage therapist for four years. Before Laign went into the field of massage therapy, she worked in fashion sales for Berger & Stevens.
Roberts and Laign were introduced by mutual friends and have been together for 10 years. Laign was present when Roberts received the Arthur Ashe Award for courage at the ESPY Awards in 2013, where she received a standing ovation from the crowd. (Laign is one seat over from Roberts, next to Roberts’ sister.)
