Sneaky Ellen DeGeneres posts hilarious video of wife Portia going her Jane Fonda workout

Ellen DeGeneres loves quizzing celebs about their love lives – but what about her own.

The American TV presenter, who starred in her own sitcom in 1994 and has hosted her own talk show since 2003, first came out as a lesbian in 1997.

That very same year, Ellen went public with her relationship with actress Anne Heche, who had roles in 90s movies Donnie Brasco, Volcano and horror movie I Know What You Did Last Summer.

The couple dated for three years and even stated they would get a civil union if it became legal in Vermont.

“It’s a celebration every single day,” DeGeneres said at the time. “It’s kind of disgusting and crazy that we’re like … Oh, we’re so lucky.”

However, the pair split because the relationship had “run its course” and was no longer working.

“Unfortunately, we have decided to end our relationship,” Ellen said in a statement in the Daily News.

“It is an amicable parting, and we greatly value the 3 1/2 years we have spent together. We hope everyone will respect our privacy through this difficult time.”

Ellen subsequently went on to have a relationship with photographer Alexandra Hedison, but that ended in 2004 and she is now married to Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster.

The pair appeared on the cover of LGBT-interest magazine The Advocate after their separation had already been announced.

But the true love of Ellen’s life is most definitely her wife, Portia de Rossi, who fell in love with Ellen the first time she laid eyes on her at a party in 2000.

However, Portia, who is the star of comedy series Arrested Development, said it took three years to tell Ellen how she felt because she wasn’t out as a lesbian.

The couple made their first public appearance together at the HBO Golden Globe Awards Party in January 2005.

Later that year they moved into a two-bedroom home together in LA and got married at their home in Beverly Hills, California in 2008.

Ellen and Portia have described how in-sync they are with each other – even finishing each other’s sentences.

Portia has praised Ellen as “the kindest, most generous, most loving, loyal, trustworthy person I have ever known”.

While the chat show host described her wife as “strong”, “confident”, and “funny”.

Earlier this year, Ellen said Portia had been her “rock” through a tough time after being accused of being a toxic workplace by former and current employees involved in the production.

She later apologised following an internal investigation in a monologue at the front of her show and promised to create a workplace where “everyone would be treated with respect.”

Speaking to PEOPLE magazine in February, Ellen revealed how Portia supported her through the crisis.

“It broke my heart; I couldn’t have gone through everything I went through without her,” she explained. “It was a horrible time in my life, and she was a rock. She kept me going and tried to help me put things in perspective.”

Portia also revealed how the Covid-19 pandemic has brought the two closer.

The actress said: “We’ve grown together as a couple, and we really consider each other and put our relationship first.

“By doing that, you become a lot more solid. I can’t imagine spending time with anyone but her.”

In May this year, Ellen addressed rumours about her marriage after she temporarily moved in with Friends star Courteney Cox.

Explaining that it has nothing to do with problems in her marriage to Portia, Ellen said she recently sold her Beverly Hills home and has indicated that living with Courteney was an act of convenience.

“I’m not having marital troubles,” said Ellen on her show. “I’m not living with Courteney Cox because I’m kicked out of my house.”

Courteney has said that she was more than happy with Ellen moving in, even if it meant her having to address issues she had in her property.

The actress said: “You’re my style guru, so I was nervous about you staying there, being that I haven’t redone it. I haven’t been there in a year.

“I had it cleaned. I moved everything off of the right side of the bathroom, so you’d have your space in the drawers. I was just really ready for you.”
