This year, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres got her wife, Portia de Rossi, the most unique gift ever to commemorate their 15th dating anniversary. On Sunday, Dec. 2, Ellen, 60, took to Instagram to post a video of her present for Portia, 45, and revealed her plan for the special moment didn’t exactly go off without a hitch.
“I hired a plane to fly by the house with a banner that said 15 with a heart. I should have specified the size,” Ellen captioned a clip of a small plane flying over her home with an even smaller “15” banner trailing behind it.
The video was so sweet and adorable that Ellen’s fans couldn’t help but gush about the sentimental anniversary gift in the video’s comments section. “Sweet idea… funny, just another memory!” one fan wrote. Another commented, “It’s the thought that counts! Happy anniversary to you both and to 100 more years.”
Ellen and Portia have been known for giving each other the most heartwarming gifts throughout their relationship. When Ellen recently turned 60, Portia visited her talk show to debut a special video that she made just for Ellen.
“For your birthday, Ellen, I am bringing you and your hero, Dian, together by building The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund,” Portia revealed at the time. “Ellen, you will carry on Dian’s legacy by giving them a permanent home in Rwanda. Now, you will join Dian as a protector and champion of these amazing animals, the mountain gorillas. Happy birthday!”
“I have also set up a foundation in your name called The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund, so this is the first initiative for the fund, but you can take this and do whatever you want with it. You’ve done amazing work for elephants, and you can just continue and support whatever you want to do,” she added. Portia’s gift was so unique and sweet that Ellen ended up crying on her show. We can’t wait to see what these two are getting each other for Christmas this year!
