Wednesday was a momentous occasion for one of our favorite celebrity couples: Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi celebrated nine years of marriage! The pair wed in 2008 in an intimate at-home ceremony, and yesterday they looked back on the occasion with sweet words and adorable photos.
"[de Rossi] and I got married 9 years ago today. Being her wife is the greatest thing I am," DeGeneres captioned the wedding photo she shared on Instagram. Her spouse shared a different throwback—this time of the pair posing for the camera. "We've been together so long that not only do we look like kids in this picture, but it was taken with a camera! Happy 9th, Thing," she joked. DeGeneres re-shared de Rossi's 'gram, captioning it "I love my wife."
The wives themselves weren't the only people to celebrate the big day. Joshua Radin, who performed at the couple's wedding, shared a message, too. "Nine years ago today, these two incredible women got married and asked me to sing some of my songs to them while they were celebrating their most special day. It's still one of the most fun things I've ever done," he wrote. DeGeneres, who was clearly excited by the milestone, also reposted this 'gram.
DeGeneres recently reflected on de Rossi's wedding vows. "Portia understands me completely," she told Good Housekeeping. "In our vows, she recited a quote—'It is good to be loved. It is profound to be understood'—and to me, that's everything."
