Ellen DeGeneres has made the world fall in love with her with her hilarious talk show hijinks and dance moves for days, but there’s only one woman who truly has her heart.
To celebrate nine years of marriage with her wife, Portia de Rossi, DeGeneres made a loving anniversary tribute on Instagram that is making the Internet swoon.
Posting a throwback picture of their wedding day almost a decade ago, DeGeneres honored her wife as being her greatest title, which Portia responded to with an equally heartwarming post.
In what feels like a neverending series of celebrity breakups, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have been one couple whose love has stood the test of time.
Back in 2008, fans were ecstatic when Ellen announced the two were getting married following the news that the California Supreme Court had dismantled a law banning same-sex marriage. They tied the knot that August with an intimate ceremony at their Los Angeles home.
Around the time the two said ‘I do,’ Portia de Rossi told People, “[Getting married] is not something we’ve ever taken for granted. That we get to do this, it means a lot.” Words which could not be more evident today after fans were treated to an adorable celebratory exchange over Instagram.
Ellen paid tribute to her wife on their anniversary by posting a black and white picture from their wedding, writing, “Portia de Rossi and I got married 9 years ago today. Being her wife is the greatest thing I am.”
Portia de Rossi also posted a picture, showing the longevity of their relationship through how terrible camera phone quality used to be from when they started their relationship. “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,” de Rossi wrote.
Musician Joshua Radin also paid tribute to the couple on Instagram, writing, “Nine years ago today, these two incredible women got married and asked me to sing some of my songs to them while they celebrated their most special day. It’s still one of the most fun things I’ve ever done.”
“Portia and I constantly say to each other, ‘We are so lucky,’” DeGeneres told People last year. “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.”
Ellen DeGeneres is no stranger to putting smiles on faces, which makes it all the more heartwarming to know that the love of her life is still giving her a reason to smile after nine years.
