Ellen Page marries Emma Portner


The new year is starting out right for Ellen Page and Emma Portner.

In a post on Instagram, the Inception actor wrote: "Can't believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife. And I'm standing here with all of you on the other side of that pain".

Actress Ellen Page has taken on a new role: wife.

They did not disclose when or where they got married.

The couple only went public with their relationship last summer, when the Juno star began sharing images of partner Emma, a teacher at the Broadway Dance Center whose choreography was used on Justin Bieber's goal world tour, on her Instagram account.

It comes after Ellen - who came out as gay in February 2014 - admitted she found it "toxic" hiding her sexuality and is much happier. "Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility".

She also claimed in the Facebook message that an unnamed director once placed a hand on her leg and pressured her to "make the move", which she declined to do.

The Page-Portner courtship appears to have been a relatively short one: Page had been dating artist Samantha Thomas since 2015 and was last photographed with her January 2017.
