Aww…love at first sight

The popular show host admits that this was their third meeting. But she had not stopped thinking about the Ally McBeal actress who left quite an impression on her in 2000.

Prior to their union, DeGeneres had been living her life as a proud lesbian. Portia, had previously been married to a man, but she did not go out of her way to hide the fact that she was a lesbian, but she did not speak publicly about her sexuality.

Defying the odds

The two women kicked off their relationship at the start of 2005, and by the end of that year, they were inseparable and living together in the same home they shared with their rescue dogs.

She’s lucky to have found love

Ellen does not hold back in letting the world know how much she loves her wife. She acknowledges that she is lucky to be with Portia, but more so, she is lucky to have found the love of her life.

Because they have a pretty public relationship, they have been at the centre of a number of breakup rumors, but by their own accounts, they are still very much together.
