Portia and Ellen make their relationship public.
After dealing with previous ties, the couple was ready to reveal their relationship to the world. The pair made their debut at the Golden Globes Awards Party in 2005, just months after their first date. It was a significant occasion for them to walk the red carpet, but adding that they were doing it together only exacerbated the media frenzy.
During the celebration, the couple was in high spirits and affectionate. It was De Rossi’s first public appearance with a celebrity like Ellen. Although Portia was initially nervous, her love for Ellen overpowered her fear of coming out as gay.
