Oh, this is nice! Ellen Page announced on Instagram that she’s married her girlfriend, Emma Portner. Ellen and Emma. A cute couple:
Who is Emma Portner anyway? Like Page, she’s Canadian. (Ottawa, in case that matters.) She’s a professional dancer and choreographer. If we believe Instagram (and I think in this case, we do), she’s really talented!
According to a profile in The Cut:
The way Portner moves has transfixed the dance world. In the past few years alone, she’s choreographed and starred in Justin Bieber’s music video for “Life Is Worth Living” as well as a piece on his Purpose World Tour; founded her own dance company — first named Flock’d, now called Emma Portner and Artists — in New York City; conceptualized a music video for indie artists Blood Orange; taught classes in New York, Los Angeles, and her native Canada; and become the youngest woman to ever choreograph a musical — Bat Out of Hell, which premieres in Toronto October 14 — on London’s West End.
According to the Cut, Emma and Ellen met via Instagram—after Portner posted a video that featured a song by Sylvan Esso, Page DM’d her. Page began posting photos of the two together over the summer, thus confirming their romance.
Another thing we know from Instagram is that the two regularly dance together, which is, again, extremely cute.
Congrats to them!!!
