Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres shared some lovely selfies with their fans just ahead of Ellen's 57th birthday. Despite the talk show host's dry humor and hilarious antics, these photos depicted the softer, sweeter side to this married couple.

Ellen and Portia appeared in the shots, sans any makeup or special wardrobe, locked in an embrace on a beach at sunset.

“My last sunset of 56 with my favorite person," DeGeneres captioned one of the shots.

Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres--who have been together since 2004 and married since August of 2008--appear both relaxed and very much in love in their sunset scene.

Portia was noticeably absent when Ellen DeGeneres celebrated her birthday on her show, however. Instead, the host celebrated with Joe Biden and Keith Urban, who sang her a very special song.

Ellen DeGeneres was her usual upbeat, hilarious self while celebrating her birthday on her show--she even gave away two Mercedes cars--but nothing says happiness like the look on her face in the selfies taken with Portia de Rossi. Despite recent rumors that things aren't going well for the couple, there appeared to be a sense of love and peace in those shots.
