With constant reports claiming she and her wife Portia de Rossi are heading for a split, Ellen DeGeneres reassured everyone that their relationship is strong.

During an interview with People magazine, the hilarious talk show host opened up about her marriage to Portia and how much she truly loves her.

"I love her so much it kills me," Miss DeGeneres explained. "The truth is, and this is corny, I fall more in love with Portia all the time. I really do."

Ellen continued, "She surprises me all the time. It's what anyone experiences when you find that person that gets you, wants to take care of you, wants the best for you. We're really lucky because we know how rare it is."

Last December, the 56-year-old television personality slammed Star magazine for spreading gossip about the pair splitting up.

She declared, "There’s not one ounce of truth to any of it. I’m very happily married. In fact, the only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more. And we argue if we’d let a kangaroo carry us around in its pouch for a year. I would. She wouldn’t. She’ll change her mind."
