Ellen DeGeneres Celebrates Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

The TV host is thrilled that gay marriage is legal again in California.

Ellen DeGeneres, 55, who has been married to Arrested Development star Portia de Rossi since 2008, is thrilled that the Supreme Court cleared the way for the resumption of same-sex marriage in California on June 26, Wednesday, after it struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) provision denying federal benefits to married gay couples.

She wrote on Twitter: "It's a supremely wonderful day for equality. Prop 8 is over, and so is DOMA. Congratulations everyone. And I mean everyone."

The ruling, which let stand earlier court declarations that Proposition 8—a ballot that passed in late 2008 stating "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California"—was unconstitutional, was also welcomed by a huge number of other celebrities including Great Gatsby star Leonardo DiCaprio, who tweeted: "Historic day. Well done #SCOTUS"

Lady Gaga, Nick Jonas, Jessie Tyler Ferguson, Lena Dunham, British comedian Russell Brand, reality TV star Bridget Marquardt, singer Adam Lambert and U.S. President Barack Obama also expressed their support for the decision.
