Ellen Page has taken to Instagram to reveal that she has secretly married her girlfriend Emma Portner, after going public with their relationship six months ago.

The actor shared a series of stunning snaps, which showed the couple kissing and showing off their wedding rings.

“Can’t believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife,” the 30-year-old wrote.

Emma, a contemporary dancer, shared similar images with the caption: “I get to call this incredible woman MY WIFE! @ellenpage I LOVE YOU!”

The Juno star came out in a speech at a Human Rights Campaign event on Valentine’s Day in 2014. 

“I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission,” she said. “I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.”

The star says her decision to open up about her sexuality has been hugely positive. 

“Everything is different. From one day to the next [after coming out], I felt a happiness and an inner peace which I hadn’t known for years,” she told Diva magazine.

“My life now is overwhelming and I’m glad to be in a position where I can support my community and also help show that you can still play all kinds of roles after you are out.”

A huge congratulations to the happy couple.
