Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi to get married
In case you haven't heard already, Ellen DeGeneres announced on her show Friday that she and girlfriend Portia de Rossi will be getting married. This is after the California Supreme Court struck down state laws banning gay marriage, the AP reports.
"I would like to say for the first time I am announcing I am getting married," DeGeneres told a cheering audience during the shows taping on Thursday, joking, "... I'll tell you who the lucky guy is soon."
Ellen, 50, and Portia, 35, have been a couple for years, after DeGeneres split up with Anne Heche, who's having her own problems with her ex-husband now. But we're sure Ellen is too happy to worry about that.
"It's something of course we've wanted to do and we wanted to be legal and we're just very, very excited," she said. We're hoping for a lavish ceremony instead of a quickie courthouse job.
