Ellen DeGeneres & Portia De Rossi: Photos of the Couple

Ellen DeGeneres married her longtime partner, Portia de Rossi, in 2008. The couple first connected back in 2004, at a VH1 Awards show, and four years later, Ellen popped the question with a 3-carat diamond ring. It wan't until California lifted the ban on same-sex marriage that DeGeneres and De Rossi were officially able to tie the knot in front of 19 friends and family. Speaking to People just last month, Ellen said, "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.” Ellen added that she and Portia often tell one another how lucky they are. "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.” In June, they welcomed their third puppy into the family. The dog's name is Kid, poking fun at the fact that people are constantly asking Ellen and Portia if they're going to have a child. These days, Ellen and Portia live together in a rustic home in Beverly Hills, which is their seventh home. Click through our gallery to check out photos of the couple. (Getty)
