Is "Good Morning America" sweetheart Robin Roberts planning to wed on-and-off again girlfriend Storm Sahara in a secret wedding ceremony sometime in the near future? Ongoing rumors surrounding Roberts and her alleged romantic partner continue to swirl on the web like crazy - some reports even "confirm" that the couple's already married! Despite such talk, Roberts still remains very hush-hush about her personal love life... And amid such marriage gossip, the beloved anchorwoman (who underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat MDS back in September) was briefly hospitalized this week after falling ill during a trip to Key West. She's back home recovering, and revealed to her fans through a Facebook post that she's doing a lot better now. Read on for more details!

In an exclusive Mstars report posted a few weeks ago, an unidentified source revealed through email:
"I work closely with Robin Roberts on a daily basis, so yes I know a great deal about her and Storm Sahara. They are indeed extremely private but only because of Robin. Storm is known throughout the LGBT community. She's an independent film director - she also owns a few boutiques throughout North and South Carolina. Since [Mstars'] last month's publication, things have been very silent between those two. However, they are back together, and from what I know a date has been put in place for a private wedding...
According to Robin, there will be no family or coworkers involved. Kind of sad because I thought at least she would invite her Glam Squad or co-anchors. But this is their wish in agreement... I admire Robin - she's a wonderful person with a big heart. They are a very beautiful couple, and I feel because of Robins' position she shouldn't be afraid to tell the world about her beautiful wife to be."
Several other gossip outlets published similar claims, insisting that Roberts and Sahara had "reconciled" their differences and were now planning a secret wedding ceremony. According to an exclusive MediaTakeOut follow-up, an insider insists that they witnessed Sahara and Roberts together at Manhattan's City Clerk's Office to pick up a marriage certificate on March 25. So, are they already married? Nothing's been confirmed yet...

But there's a specific part of Roberts' life that she enjoys updating fans on... her battle with cancer and recovery. On Thursday morning (April 18), Roberts posted this message on her Facebook:
My heart continues to go out to the remarkably strong people of Boston. We stand by you now and always.
It saddens me that I haven't been able to join my colleagues in covering this important story.
Last week, in the middle of my Key West vacation, I began not to feel well. Nothing serious, just under the weather. I contacted my doctors and flew back to NYC. They felt it best to admit me into the hospital for a few days. Seems my young immune system needed a little boost to fight off "opportunistic infections".
My doctors assured me that this was NOT because I was working or doing too much, too soon. It's extremely common, post bone marrow transplant, to have complications. I'm blessed that mine have not been severe.
I'm feeling MUCH better, and will relax at home for the rest of the week. I'll be back on GMA next week...as my sweet momma would say: "Good Lord willing, and the creek don't rise!"
Miss you and bless you..XO
Doctors recommended that Roberts go to the hospital to fight off any infection... she's now doing fine. Whether or not Sahara joined the "GMA" host on her mini Key West vaca (and whether or not they were making any wedding plans) remains unknown...
