Ellen Page is starting off 2018 with big news: She has gotten married!
Page has married dancer and choreographer Emma Portner and shared the news on social media.
“Can’t believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife,” she wrote on Instagram on Wednesday, tagging her wife, with a picture of their hands sporting matching rings. A representative for Page confirmed the news to People.
Page, 30, began sharing photos with Portner over the summer.
She also recently shared a video of the couple dancing together.
Portner is best known for choreographing and appearing in the Justin Bieber music video “Life Is Worth Living.” Her choreography was also used during his Purpose World Tour.
Page and Portner met through Instagram, as Portner revealed in an October feature story in The Cut:
Instagram also happens to be how Portner met her partner, Ellen Page: she posted a video to a song by Sylvan Esso, the band shared the video, and Page saw it and DM’d her. (Page, who stops by the shoot, says she thought Portner was “the shit.”) Now, Portner’s name appears next to Page’s in Daily Mail headlines about the two of them holding hands at movie premieres, or kissing in West Hollywood. “It’s quite crazy,” Portner says of her new tabloid fame. “But if anything, I’m happy for it. We try to hold hands in public. I try to join her at movie premieres. If we were a straight couple, I don’t think we’d push it so much. But it’s a chance for queerness to be out in the open.”
Page came out in 2014 at a Human Rights Campaign event.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
