Ellen Page had a great way to kick off 2018 — the actress just surprised her fans by announcing that she got married!
Ellen, 30, got married to her girlfriend, Emma Portner, a dancer at the Broadway Dance Center who has choreographed for Justin Bieber. According to People, Ellen and Emma went public with their romance six months ago when they were spotted kissing at a café in Los Angeles.
The Juno and Inception actress posted a photo of the couple wearing their wedding bands on Instagram, writing:
Can’t believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife. @emmaportner
Emma echoed Ellen’s sentiments, as she posted the same photo gallery, saying:
I get to call this incredible woman MY WIFE! @ellenpage I LOVE YOU!
Ellen famously came out as gay in 2014 when she spoke at a Human Rights Campaign event on Valentine’s Day. In her speech, Ellen said:
“I’m here today because I am gay and maybe I can make a difference. I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility. I also do it selfishly, because I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission.”
