Happy 60th Birthday, Ellen DeGeneres! The television personality is undoubtedly celebrating her big day with her wife, Portia de Rossi, by her side. The two lovebirds married back in August 2008 — they’ll celebrate their 10-year anniversary this year! — but have been together since 2004.
Throughout the years, both Ellen and Portia have done nothing but gush about each other, proving their love is palpable. “Portia understands me completely,” Ellen recently said. “In our vows, she recited a quote, ‘It is good to be loved. It is profound to be understood’ — and that to me is everything. She supports me and makes me happy.” So sweet!
“I’m grateful for everything. I’m grateful for my health, and I’m so grateful for the love in my life. Because not everybody finds that. Not everybody finds that best friend,” the talk show host told People back in 2016. “Portia and I constantly say to each other, ‘We are so lucky.’ Sometimes it’s lying in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I just say thank you to whatever, whoever is out there. I’ve gotten to a place where I really am just settled. Really. I know that I’m not going anywhere. She’s not going anywhere. I’m not saying the relationship took a while; I’m saying in my life, it took a while to find this.”
And when pesky divorce rumors pop up, Ellen says the two get “kind of flattered.” In fact, she’s said in the past that their love life is basically flawless! “We don’t know anything about [the rumors] until somebody tells us. I don’t read the tabloids, and I don’t have a publicist. We really don’t almost break up, we don’t fight, we’re madly in love, and I guess it’s boring,” she said in 2015.
