Portia de Rossi was hospitalized for appendicitis, Fox News has learned.
The actress, 48, underwent surgery on Friday and is now home recovering with her wife Ellen DeGeneres, according to a report from People magazine.
A rep for the couple told the outlet that de Rossi is “doing well.”
The “Arrested Development” star isn’t the only one who has struggled health-wise recently. DeGeneres, 63, tested positive for COVID-19 in December 2020.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi married in 2008.
The pair wed in August 2008 after same-sex marriage became legalized in California.
“We’ve grown together as a couple, and we really consider each other and put our relationship first,” de Rossi previously told the magazine about their relationship. “By doing that, you become a lot more solid. I can’t imagine spending time with anyone but her.”
DeGeneres added. “We think the same things, say the same things at the same time, finish each other’s sandwiches — no, sentences. We’re in a rhythm that’s easy.”
The pair insisted that they still find new things to appreciate about each other daily.
“To start superficially, I love the way she looks,” said DeGeneres about her wife. “I love her brain; she’s smart. That’s really important. She’s strong. She’s confident. She’s really funny. And she’s a good dresser and a good dancer. She’s learning to cook.”
Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have leaned on each this past year during the talk show host’s toxic workplace scandal and COVID-19 battle.
The Emmy-winner also spoke about how de Rossi stood by her side when she faced scrutiny last year after several former employees alleged a toxic work environment.
“It broke my heart,” DeGeneres admitted to the outlet of the allegations. “I couldn’t have gone through everything I went through without her. It was a horrible time in my life, and she was a rock. She kept me going and tried to help me put things in perspective.”
