Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi celebrate their 10th year together as a married couple. It is no breaking news that the talk show host is one of the few celebrities who are open about their marriage to someone of the same sex. In honour of their wedding anniversary 60 years old Ellen DeGeneres and her spouse 45 years old Portia De Rossi, posted a video from their wedding on their respective Instagram pages.

The video showed a photo montage from their wedding and also the way they looked at each other for the first time. This is not the first time Ellen has shown this video to the world. A month after their wedding, she played the footage on her talk show.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi started dating three years before they got married in 2008. Wayne Dyer who is a famous author and philosopher officiated the wedding ceremony of the duo.

Ellen shared her feelings on social media when she shared the video by saying “Ten years ago, Wayne Dyer officiated our wedding ceremony. These words were life-changing to us then, and they mean just as much now.”

Portia wasn’t left out of the show of emotions as she also wrote “10 years ago today, Ellen and I were married, We wanted to share Wayne Dyer’s poignant and special words with you to remind us all how far we’ve come—that we are living in a country that supports #marriageequality #waynedyer.”

Ellen DeGeneres publicly announced that she was engaged to Portia De Rossi on her show three months before their wedding. Despite the conflict surrounding the legalisation of same-sex marriage at that time, Ellen was lucky to be favoured by the state ban on same-sex marriage that was overturned by the California Supreme court just before her engagement. However, in 2013 same-sex marriage became legal in California and by 2015 it became legitimate nationwide.

Congratulations Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi.
