No pre-nup for Ellen and Portia
Now that same-sex marriages are legal in the state of California, a slew of entertainers are quickly planning their nuptials.
Perhaps no celebrity couple will draw quite as much media attention as talk show host Ellen Degeneres and her girlfriend, Portia De Rossi.
And according to the National Ledger, they’ll do it without a pre-nup.
Ever since Ellen announced on her daytime talk show that she and De Rossi had made plans to tie the knot, all eyes have been on the happy couple.
Mariah Carey presented Ellen with a nightie for their honeymoon.
Jenna Bush even offered up the Bush ranch as a wedding location.
Now, as the date draws closer, the Ledger reports that despite their 15 years age difference, and estimates putting Degeneres at being worth considerably more money, they will walk down the aisle with no prenup.
According to the article, Degeneres says she’s not worried about a legal agreement because she’s confident her relationship with the Aussie actress is going to last.
A source also told the publication Degeneres “finds prenups unromantic.”
Degeneres and De Rossi have been together since 2004.
De Rossi officially came out in The Advocate in 2005 after years of openly dating women but not discussing her personal life with the press.
