Romance is in the air, literally in the airspace above Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s home, as the two are celebrating six years of marriage. Portia de Rossi hired a skywriter to write the word “six” in giant letters in the sky as a surprise for Ellen on their sixth anniversary, reports the New York Daily News on Aug. 19
Now that says a lot for this couple, as six years together in Hollywood time is like decades anywhere else! Ellen was pleased with the romantic gesture, tweeting a picture of the two together with the skywriting in the background. “Look what my wife did for our wedding anniversary,” tweeted Ellen.
The Huffington Post points out that the two appear to be posing for a “no makeup selfie,” for their Twitter “six” picture in the sky. The message appeared in the sky above their home this weekend.
So much for marriage on the rocks rumors, these two women look as happy as the day they wed in their recent online photo. The couple is not immune to the problems that plague any marriage today, but they seem to have a strategy that’s missing in many marriages today.
When a problem has come up in the past, Ellen and Portia have worked through them, so there’s no reason to think they couldn’t do that again if need be. Ellen’s use of comedy to dispel rumors has also worked wonders.
A good example of this comes from Ellen back in February when she said: "One tabloid said Portia's leaving me because she doesn't like moving a lot. Which is funny because she is overseeing the construction of our new house and loving it."
Ellen has no problem addressing the rumors of a failing marriage, but a picture is worth a thousand words, like her last photo posted with the “six” high above them in a white puffy font. When it comes to Portia, she is not one to hide her struggles. This was seen in the past when she’s sought help with her eating disorder.
Six years of marriage and a skywriting gesture of love seems to put a tight lid on rumors of a crumbling marriage. Ellen and Portia are a Hollywood couple, which somehow means fair game for the media. So while the couple is looking strong today in the news, they are just a tabloid headline away from another round of marriage trouble rumors. Just look for the number "seven" above their place next August!
