After mentioning her longtime girlfriend in an end-of-year Facebook post yesterday, Robin Roberts received many tweets of support from celebs, media types, and the First Lady of the United States. "I am so happy for you and Amber! You continue to make us all proud," Michelle Obama tweeted this afternoon.

Roberts, who has been with girlfriend Amber Laign for ten years, made news with her statement of gratitude, and inspired folks like Nina Garcia and Russell Simmons to get heart-warmingly hashtag sappy with their congratulatory replies. #Yougogirl
