Most famous celebrity lesbian stars who get married.
1. Jillian Michaels and Heidi Rhoades
Jillian Michaels is engaged to her longtime partner, Heidi Rhoades— and she has been for months. The Biggest Loser trainer popped the question during the season finale of her E!
Michaels, 42, got down on bended knee at a movie theater with the couple’s family and friends in attendance. But first, she surprised Rhoades with a video that featured photos of the couple and past adventures they’ve shared together. It also included photos of their loved ones holding up signs that read “Will You Marry Me.”
2. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
Although rumors of divorce seem to always trouble Ellen and Portia, they still are the queen and queen of lesbian couples. They have been together since 2004 and tied the knot in 2008 – the equivalent of a 30-year marriage in celebrity years. They have both kept their successful careers going; Ellen is currently producing the sitcom “One Big Happy.”
3. Ellen Page and Samantha Thomas
Ellen Page’s beautiful coming out speech last year was as inspirational as it was heartwarming. She told Entertainment Tonight that her relationship with surfer/artist Samantha Thomas is “So special. So far, that’s not something I’ve experienced in my life, to get to love someone openly, to hold someone’s hand walking down the street. And it’s a beautiful, beautiful thing. And I’m just very lucky to have someone in my life as special as her.”
4. Adèle Haenel and Céline Sciamma
Adèle came out in last year’s César, the French Academy Awards, by thanking her girlfriend Céline. The two met when filming the lesbian movie “Water Lilies”; Adèle was the lead actress, Céline the director. Since then, Adèle has won the César again and Céline has launched the critically acclaimed film “Girlhood.”
5. Chely Blitzer-Wright and Lauren Blitzer-Wright
Another awesome married couple. Country star Chely Wright came out as a lesbian in 2010 and married girlfriend, who works at marketing for Universal, Lauren Blitzer. The two have twin sons and post loads of pictures of them on Twitter. Chely has been a great advocate for LGBT rights and did a documentary about her coming out story.
6. Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marioni
The Sex and the City star was engaged to her long-time girlfriend, education activist Christine Marioni, for three years while the pair waited for New York State to legalize same-sex marriage. They finally got hitched in 2012.
7. Wanda and Alex Sykes
When comedian Wanda Sykes spontaneously came out during a speech about LGBT equality in 2008, she not only came out as gay, but also as married—she’d secretly tied the knot with her French girlfriend Alex Niedbalski (who took Wanda’s last name) a month earlier in California. The couple are loving parents to a pair of 5-year-old twins named Lucas and Olivia.
8. Michelle Harper and Jenny Shimizu
Model Jenny Shimizu is famous for dating Angelina Jolie in the 90s, but her current girlfriend is the fashion brand consultant Michelle Harper. They’re both admired fashion icons.
9. Stephanie Allynne and Tig Notaro
This couple’s heartwarming story gave a beautifully happy ending to comedian Tig Notaro’s recent Netflix documentary about beating cancer. After months of trying to start a family, the pair is now excitedly expecting twins they’ve nicknamed “Itsy and Bitsy.”
10. Lauren Morelli and Samira Wiley
Lauren Morelli, the head writer of Orange Is the New Black, realized—with some alarm—that she was a lesbian through the process of writing of the show. She divorced her husband amicably in 2014 and started dating Samira Wiley, who plays Poussey on the show. The pair have been being adorable all over Instagram and making each other happy every since.
