Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi
Much to the surprise of girlfriend de Rossi, 35, DeGeneres, 50, announced her wedding plans live on her talk show. "This is very exciting," DeGeneres began, "California Supreme Court overturned a ban on gay marriage. I would like to say right now, for the first time, I am getting married." The funny woman added, "I’ll tell you who the lucky guy is soon." She later lamented the passing of Proposition 8, which repealed the court’s ruling, by saying, "One day, when everyone is treated with full equality, we’ll look back and realize how wrong this was."
