Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have been together for nearly a decade, and it’s pretty clear that the couple are deeply in love. De Rossi and DeGeneres shared a couple of photos that they took the day before Ellen’s 57th birthday. The photos show Portia and Ellen without any make-up, embracing on a beach with a beautiful sunset in the background. Ellen captioned the photo, “My last sunset of 56 with my favorite person.” Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have been together since 2004, and they got married on August 16, 2008 after the same sex marriage ban was lifted.

Ellen celebrated her birthday by interviewing Joe Biden on her TV show. She was also serenaded with a special performance from country singer, Keith Urban. The talk show host also gave away two brand-new Mercedes Benz vehicles to a couple of surprised fans in the audience. Ellen tweeted, “I'm celebrating all week long. I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner. Next year, I'm gonna do a whole month.”

In a recent interview, Ellen discussed her relationship with Portia de Rossi and how they have similar tastes in art and their decorating styles. “She's a little more Deco. She loves Jean Royère and I do, too, but some of the pieces are little too Deco for me,” Ellen said in the interview. “I like clean lines instead. For the most part, we have exactly the same taste in art and furniture. It's really great because it's so important to me. It would be horrible to live with someone who didn't like the same things you like.”

While Ellen’s been keeping busy with her talk show, Portia de Rossi has kept a relatively low profile after her stint in the TV show Arrested Development. However, she will next be seen in the upcoming comedy Now Add Honey alongside Lucy Fry.
