Ellen DeGeneres Reacts To DOMA Ruling

You just know that Ellen DeGeneres has to be a happy camper following the ruling on DOMA earlier today. It’s a celebration for marriage everywhere!

Now, our favorite talk show host is speaking out on the rulings with regard to Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act. We are all delightfully surprised! It’s a good day for love — no matter who you are or who you’re with.

Ellen and wife Portia de Rossi don’t want children, but they do want their marriage recognized in the eyes of the law. And recognized it shall be!

Ellen took to her official Twitter account to praise the decision. She tweeted, “It’s a supremely wonderful day for equality. Prop 8 is over, and so is DOMA. Congratulations everyone. And I mean everyone.”

People magazine has the scoop on the ruling:

The Supreme Court earlier handed a major victory for gay rights in two decisions. It cleared the way for the resumption of same-sex marriage in California by letting stand earlier court declarations that Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, and struck down the Defense of Marriage Act provision denying federal benefits to married gay couples.

Ellen and Portia have been married since 2008. We’re happy that marriage will be recognized on all levels. Congratulations to them!
