As if we didn't love Ellen DeGeneres enough already, she managed to make our hearts burst yet again. The comedian just shared a rare PDA picture of herself and her wife, Portia de Rossi, kissing to celebrate de Rossi's 45th birthday on Wednesday.
“Happy birthday to my favorite person in the world,” DeGeneres wrote to her wife of nine years on Instagram.
In addition to her sweet Instagram snapshot, the talk-show host shared a compilation video of her wife's appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show over the years, captioned “Happy birthday to my beautiful, wonderful, perfect wife.”
“I feel like as you get older you just get so much more comfortable in your skin and you feel better about yourself and about life,” DeGeneres noted at the time.
The couple will be celebrating their 10th anniversary together in August, and we’re sure it’s going to be quite the celebration. Last summer, DeGeneres shared an adorable shot of herself and her wife on their wedding day, writing, “@PortiadeRossi and I got married 9 years ago today. Being her wife is the greatest thing I am.”
The two are rumored to already have plans for their big 10-year anniversary. According to a report that came out in October, the two will mark their decade-long marriage with a special vow renewal in Australia. A source shared to Woman’s Day that the two are planning to re-create their 2008 wedding with “a few new twists,” and the couple is planning to head to the land down under in summer 2018.
DeGeneres and de Rossi have been together since 2004, after meeting backstage at an awards ceremony, and tied the knot four years later. They wed during an intimate at-home ceremony in 2008.
Happy birthday, Portia!
