DeGeneres and De Rossi have probably earned some happy times, given the past few months. The couple escaped harm during wildfires that raged around their home in Montecito, California, only to have to leave their home due to deadly mudslides. DeGeneres also lost her father earlier this year.

Last summer, DeGeneres posted a similarly adorable message to de Rossi on their ninth anniversary, writing, "@PortiadeRossi and I got married 9 years ago today. Being her wife is the greatest thing I am."
