Ellen Page has secretly married her dancer girlfriend Emma Portner, just six months after going public with their romance.

The 30-year-old actress revealed the happy news on Instagram with pictures of the pair kissing while showing off their matching wedding bands.

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

Meanwhile Emma, who is a 22-year-old contemporary jazz teacher, posted the same photographs alongside the caption, “I get to call this incredible woman MY WIFE! I LOVE YOU!”

The news comes just six months after Ellen and Emma went public with their romance in July 2017, when they were spotted kissing outside a cafe in Los Angeles.

Their romance came just months after Ellen split from her ex-girlfriend, artist Samantha Thomas, after 18 months of dating.

Ellen recently told how she felt a “happiness and an inner peace” after she made the decision to publicly come out as gay back in 2014.

The actress publicly came out as gay in a rousing speech at a Human Rights Campaign event on Valentine’s Day in February 2014, which earned her a standing ovation.

“I’m here today because I am gay and because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility,” she told the audience.

“I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission, I suffered for years because I was scared to be out.

“My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered, and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.”
