Roberts reposted the tribute on her Instagram page which has since garnered thousands of reactions from her fans who congratulated the lovebirds on reaching another milestone in their relationship.

Roberts and Laign began dating in 2005 after they were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend. The pair kept their relationship under the radar for many years until Roberts came out as gay for the first time in a December 2013 Facebook post.

Earlier in the year, Laign lost her dad and the news was first shared by Roberts on January 5 on her Instagram page.

The 59-year-old anchor also revealed that she was enjoying a clean bill of health and praised the efforts of her doctors and family members in getting her through her health crisis.
