In a new interview with The New York Times, readers get a glimpse inside 60-year-old DeGeneres and 45-year-old de Rossi's marriage, when de Rossi takes a fall off a horse and gets a concussion. DeGeneres is described as immediately tensing up when she gets a phone call from de Rossi and asks urgently, “What do you mean? Is anything broken? Baby!”
Aside from the concussion, de Rossi turned out to be OK but DeGeneres is shaken.
"This is my biggest fear," she says. “I’m scared all the time for her.”
When de Rossi returns, DeGeneres implores her, "Baby, stop riding horses!”
Meanwhile, when it comes to the beloved comedian's incredible career, she says de Rossi has helped her immensely, especially when it comes to her upcoming Netflix special, Relatable. DeGeneres says the comedy special will show more of herself than just her nice girl image on her extremely popular daytime talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
