In what’s already the cutest freaking news of 2018, Ellen Page announced that she married her longtime girlfriend, dancer Emma Portner.

The 30-year-old actress made the announcement via Instagram on Wednesday with photos of the couple, including their hands showing off wedding bands and cuddly nature shots.

Ellen Page announced via Instagram that she married dancer Emma Portner.

“Can’t believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife,” Page wrote.


Portner posted photos to her own Instagram as well.

“I get to call this incredible woman MY WIFE!” she wrote. “@ellenpage I LOVE YOU!”

On Twitter, Page’s fans were equal parts overjoyed and devastated to learn their dreams of marrying the Juno and Inception star seemed unlikelier than ever.


Page, who came out in 2014 at a Human Rights Campaign convention, didn’t reveal any details about when and where she and Portner got hitched. But if their adorable dancing videos are any indication, it was probably cute as heck. 

Here’s to hoping there’s plenty more good gay news to come in 2018!
