Roberts also got emotional when speaking about Michael Strahan and his 19-year-old daughter, Isabella, who is currently battling a brain tumor. Strahan and Isabella recently spoke with the 63-year-old about her condition on GMA.

"I was honored that they asked me to be the one to sit down," Roberts stated. "For Isabella to have the strength and courage to come on national television and share her story in the hopes of helping others, making her message — it was quite emotional to sit across from her, to see Michael, and just really grateful for the outpouring of support and love for her and for Michael."

"Every day is precious to them.

They’re so glad they were able to share this day with their friends and loved ones," they added.

Roberts had experienced health issues of her own, as the star dealt with b---- cancer in 2007, and she was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder five years later.
