Getting the microphone, de Rossi said, “You don’t have to say anything at all, but when I was thinking about what would make my birthday really special, it was reminding you that you’re the most important thing in the world to me, in front of family and friends.
“I was thinking about my life, my accomplishments, and it just all kept leading back to you and I thought what greater accomplishment could I ever ever have in my life than being loved by someone who is so magnificent, by someone as incredible as you,” she continued. “Also I feel like we’re on a new journey, this is a new chapter, after 24 houses in 18 years — 24 in 18 years! — this is our first home, this is it, we’re settling down finally and we’re planing roots and taking care of each other more than ever before.”
Finally, she said, “I’m so excited for our future where we just get to do whatever the hell we want for the rest of our lives … It’s you, it always has been. You cheer me up when I’m down, you make me feel seen, you make me feel safe, cherished, loved. I love you, I will always love you. I am so honoured to be your life.”
After sharing a kiss, DeGeneres told her wife, “I just adore you, I love you and I would not be on this earth without you. You save me every day. Thank you for saving me every day. I’m the lucky one. Wow, everybody!”
