Portia de Rossi was seen shopping in Santa Barbara on Friday, a day after renewing her vows with wife Ellen DeGeneres in a star-studded ceremony presided over by Kris Jenner.
The Arrested Development star, 50, wore minimal makeup and kept warm in a gorgeous blue coat stitched with ornate white patterns.
Portia paired blue jeans with cowboy boots and her blonde hair flowed in relaxed waves, giving her a casual look as she got into her car.
Former Ally McBeal’s shopping spree follows her surprising Ellen, 65, with their vow renewal on Wednesday.
She enlisted the help of their “BFF” Kris Jenner, 67, who raved about the couple on Instagram when she shared a clip from the A-list ceremony.
“It was such an honor to officiate the renewal of the wedding vows of my beautiful best friends Ellen and Portia,” Kris said. “I love you guys so much and wish you a lifetime of happiness, love and laughter!!”
She included two white heart emojis and tagged the brides’ two social media handles.
Jenner looked typically sharp as she sported her signature pixie haircut along with a pair of chunky, black-rimmed, square-shaped glasses.
She wore her elegant outer layer in the form of a buttoned cape, showing her pronounced collar and a glimpse of her black turtleneck.
The clip showed Portia moving through a crowded room in the same halter neck wedding dress she wore to their 2008 wedding.
The Australian beauty approached a wistful Ellen, dressed casually in khaki trousers, a button down shirt and a light jacket.
Portia gave her wife a small bouquet of white flowers before Kris read in a newspaper: “Welcome to Portia’s birthday party and the new home of one of my favorite couples.”
In just a few hours, the post garnered over 200,000 likes from enthusiastic fans, with Khloe Kardashian commenting, “Mom, I love you.”
In Kris’ video, the recording person in the audience can be heard saying, “That’s beautiful!” My daughters!’
“Surprise,” Portia says to Ellen, sparking laughter from the guests, who are standing in a beautifully appointed room filled with artwork and wood.
Portia then assures his wife of fifteen years, “You have nothing to say at all”, prompting even more laughter before the ceremony begins.
Ellen shared the video on her Instagram page earlier this week, writing, “Portia surprised me at her birthday party by renewing our vows.
‘Thank you @KrisJenner for officiating and @BrandiCarlile for playing, and Portia for being the greatest gift to me, even on your birthday. You can watch the whole video on my YouTube.’
In Ellen’s video, Portia is seen walking through a sea of people in wedding dresses until she stands in front of Ellen who is shocked with her mouth open.
‘Oh my God!’ she said, having absolutely no idea it was a renewal of wedding vows, as she was under the impression that they were just celebrating Portia’s birthday.
On Tuesday, the iconic talk show host wished Portia a happy birthday, posting a photo of de Rossi to her Instagram page and writing a sweet caption.
“Happy birthday, Portia,” Ellen wrote, captioning a photo of de Rossi smiling on a boat and swaddled in the sun. ‘Thank God for you.’
The couple recently celebrated their anniversary, leading Ellen to share another heartfelt tribute on Instagram to mark the milestone.
Along with posting a sweet selfie of her and Portia outside at sunset, Ellen said in her caption that she’s “falling more in love with her every day.”
“I’m so grateful for her love,” exclaimed the legendary comedian, who started dating Portia in 2004 after they first met three years prior at a party.
After their first meeting, de Rossi said she “really never stopped thinking” about Ellen, despite being in a relationship with Francesca Gregorini at the time.
“I’ve just never felt that kind of energy with anyone in my life. So there’s that,’ she said of their immediate spark.
Looking back on their first introduction, Portia said she was still “locked up” and “not comfortable” with her sexuality.
“I just knew being with her would be a bit of a thing for me, so we didn’t get together after that for about three years,” she explained to People in 2021.
