 Ellen and Portia got married in their house

However, it is not it, the pair got married in their Beverly Hills, California based home. Only 17 guests and their mothers were present to witness the wedding. The reason their wedding took place in a very simple way might be because California was in the verse of banning same-sex marriage, and the pair got married just two months before the ban was officiated. 

However, not everything in the wedding was simple as Ellen proposed the love of her life with a blinding three-carat diamond ring.

Initially, the wedding was kept a secret, but later on, the pair shared a video featuring their simple yet intimate wedding ceremony. 

The fact that the couple cared more about being with each other rather than just the big things in life makes this moment noteworthy. They have been together for the past decade, and their love for each other seems as fresh as ever.

Portia has always been there for Ellen's big moments

When you are in a relationship, you expect your significant other to always be by your side during ups and downs. And Portia has done the same for Ellen. She has been there for Ellen at her highest and lowest points cheering her up and motivating her. 

In 2017, Ellen celebrated the 20th Anniversary of her 'Coming Out' on her show. The people who helped and supported her to do so were present there to share their experience which also resulted in a lot of backlashes. Portia was also thereas well, and she stayed in the audience section listening to their story.
