Roberts, 54, beat breast cancer in 2007, and she also overcame a rare blood disorder that required a bone marrow transplant in 2012. And now that her health and career are back on track, a friend told The ENQUIRER that Roberts is “on top of the world and can’t think of anything better than showing Amber how much she loves her by exchanging vows.”
So what will their big day be like? “Expect the wedding to be a quiet affair with family and friends,” noted the insider. “But you can bet that Michelle Obama, a close pal, will get an invite and maybe she’ll bring Barack along!”
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Roberts gushed that Laign is “the wind beneath my wings” in her new book, Everybody’s Got Something.
The two have “been together for nearly a decade,” Roberts also revealed in the intimate memoir. “Mutual friends set us up on a blind date. I liked the fact that she had no idea who I was. She rarely followed sports, so she never saw me on ESPN, and her office mates at the time watched a different morning show … ouch!”
Roberts continued, “She’s originally from Northern California and is extremely laid-back, no drama, no fuss. The main thing we have in common is positive energy. She sees the good in everyone.”
