Ellen Page is married.

The actress who got her big break with the 2007 film “Juno” revealed she married girlfriend Emma Portner, reports Out Magazine. In an Instagram post, Page and Portner showed their marriage rings with Page writing, “Can’t believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife.”

Page, 30, came out in 2014, revealing her same-sex orientation during a speech at a Human Rights Campaign conference in Las Vegas. Last November she accused filmmaker Brett Ratner of outing her to the cast and crew of “X-Men: The Last Stand.” Page, then 18, played mutant Kitty Pryde in the movie based on the Marvel Comics series.

Both Page and Portner are native Canadians. A choreographer, Portner moved to New York City where she started her own dance company. She reportedly met Page through Instagram.

“I get to call this incredible woman MY WIFE! @ellenpage I LOVE YOU!” Portner posted on Instagram, using the same picture of their hands with two fingers touching.

Page was nominated for an Academy Award for her role as a pregnant teenager in “Juno.” Audiences responded to the film as comedic which Page said in subsequent interviews surprised her because she was accustomed to playing serious, dark characters.
