Nine years ago, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi tied the knot in a loving ceremony, but despite recent rumors that the couple were on the rocks, its seems like they’re more loved-up than ever. The Ellen Degeneres Show host posted a loving tribute to Instagram, writing, “@PortiadeRossi and I got married 9 years ago today,” alongside a black and white photo of the two on their wedding day.
Portia posted another cute snap of the two of them to her Instagram. She wrote, "We've been together so long that not only do we look like kids in this picture, but it was taken with a camera! Happy 9th, Thing." Cute! Watch the video below to see their sweet anniversary photos!
While rumors have recently swirled that Ellen and Portia could be headed for a divorce, the couple are putting up a united front. Just last month, the 59-year-old gushed about Portia in an interview with Good Housekeeping. “Portia understands me completely,” Ellen said. “In our vows, she recited a quote, ‘It is good to be loved. It is profound to be understood’ — and to me, that’s everything. What ‘I love you’ really means is ‘I understand you,’ and she loves me for everything that I am. She supports me and makes me happy.”

During another interview with Oprah Winfrey, Portia discussed how she fell for her longtime partner, saying that it took a long time for her to work up the courage to ask Ellen out. “We actually met socially and I just felt that immediate draw,” she recalled. “We did talk a little bit and then over those three years, we saw each other at parties or at various things, but the one time that was the most significant was during a photoshoot actually.”
“I just walked over to say hello to her, and I couldn’t believe it, but she turned around and it was like an arrow was shot through my heart,” Portia continued. “I felt weak at the knees and I was overwhelmed with how I felt, but then it took me about 10 months to get the courage up to actually do anything about it.” Congratulations to the happy couple!
