Happy anniversary, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi!

The couple celebrated their eight-year wedding anniversary on Tuesday, and DeGeneres marked the occasion on Twitter with a sweet picture of the two holding hands.

"Best thing I ever did. #8years #HappyAnniversary," DeGeneres wrote.

DeGeneres, 58, and de Rossi, 43, tied the knot on Aug. 16, 2008 at their home in Beverly Hills, California, after the overturn of the same-sex marriage ban in California. The two are obviously still going strong despite facing breakup rumors in the past.

"I don't know why they do this," DeGeneres told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show last September, referring to tabloid reports that the two are heading towards a split. "We're kind of flattered. We really don't almost break up, we don't fight, we're madly in love, and I guess it's boring."

In January, de Rossi gushed about her wife when ET caught up with the actress at ABC's Television Critics Association winter party.

"We're just really good friends and we talk about everything, and we never ever, ever lie to each other, like, not even the tiniest lies," she said about the secret to maintaining their longtime relationship. "And she's the only person I want to hang out with. Like, she is my best friend and I just want to be with her all the time."

Clearly, the feeling is mutual. DeGeneres showed us just how enamored she still is with the Scandal star when we sat down with her in June while she was promoting Finding Dory. When asked about what kind of fish de Rossi would be, the daytime talk show host adorably replied, "She's the prettiest fish in the ocean -- whatever that would be. She's the prettiest angelfish you've ever seen."
