“A week of celebrations leading up to today… Sweet Amber’s Birthday!!” Read the caption of Robin’s post.

“It’s wonderful to have our longtime friends Scarlett and Linda join us. The biggest gift was seeing the birthday boy having so much fun.”

The second slide of the post had a birthday cake with the words “Happy Birthday ‘Sweet Amber'” in frosting.

The comments section was filled with several birthday wishes for Amber, who turned 48.

Robin has been in a relationship with Amber, a massage therapist, since 2005, although Robin first came out publicly in late December 2013.

‘Great goodbye’

Robin has been away from TV screens after announcing she was taking a break from GMA and returning sometime in September.

And on Sunday she wrote: “Great farewell before we head home…on the eve of Sweet Amber’s birthday our chef had 2 surprises for her, a delicious cake AND an amazing singing voice!!”

Sharing the sunset scene on Saturday, she wrote: “On the way to our final destination in Croatia.

“Wherever you are in this great world, we wish you and all those you care about a blessed and joyful weekend.”

Fans rushed to complement her vacation picture, calling it “spectacular” and “gorgeous.”

The pair have been enjoying a break in Italy and Croatia for the past week.

On Friday, Robin told fans she was “grateful” to see Amber enjoying her holiday.

Sharing a picture of her longtime friend paddling, Robin wrote, “Grateful Thursday to me… seeing my sweet Amber enjoying our holiday.”

Amber was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2021.

Robin said in June that Amber’s treatment was going well when she gave an update on her condition.

She then shared on Instagram in July that her partner had undergone the last of her radiation treatments after struggling with chemotherapy.

Robin shared a video of Amber performing a “happy dance” as she exits the hospital.

The TV presenter knows the devastating reality of cancer all too well, having battled the disease twice herself.

First in 2007 when Robin was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer.

She underwent eight chemotherapy treatments to eliminate the disease.

Then in 2012, when Robin was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome.

It’s a type of cancer that occurs when the blood-making cells in the bone marrow become abnormal, resulting in “low counts of one or more types of blood cells,” according to Cancer.org.

Robin learned that without a successful transplant, her life expectancy would be one to two years.

She underwent a bone marrow transplant and received healthy blood-forming cells from her sister.
