SheWired put together a collage of their sweetest photos together since the ultra- talented pair began dating in 2004 and their 3 most memorable moments together on TV.

This week Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi celebrated their third wedding anniversary.  They married o August 16th, 2008 in California during those blissful months when same-sex marriage was legal in the state. 

And while the traditional gift for a third wedding anniversary is leather, these two hot vegans probably wouldn’t appreciate sweet leather bondage gear for gifts.

Rather, we have put together a digital scrapbook of a few of their sweetest on-camera moments since the ultra- talented pair began dating in 2004.

It’s just our little way of sending some Internet love to the incredibly inspiring couple on their special day.

In their first televised interview as wife and wife in 2009, DeGeneres and de Rossi eloquently explained to Oprah the significance of their legal marriage.

An inspirational and trailblazing icon in the LGBT community, DeGeneres spoke about the great importance of having their union legally defined as a "marriage." "The thing about being a gay couple is that in the past you referred to your wife and there was quotation marks around it. There was always that chance that people would kind of snicker about it," de Rossi said. "Now it's fact. It's law. She's my wife. I get to say that she's my wife, and that's just the way it is."

The Ellen DeGeneres Show is a hit with viewers, critics, and daytime Emmy voters alike. And while the celebrated comic has hosted the hugest stars in the world on her talk show, a lot of extra special prep went into her first interview with her wife, Portia. Billed as “De Interview,” the adorable couple ultimately played "The Newlywed Game" on air and gave a very revealing answer about... whoopee!

Lesbians all over the world swooned when gorgeous Portia de Rossi surprised her wife, Ellen, on her birthday episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show with a very sexy and hilarious rendition of Marilyn Monroe’s “happy Birthday” serenade.
