Ellen DeGeneres and her longtime girlfriend, actress Portia de Rossi, plan to get married, according to the AP.

The talk-show host made the announcement during a taping of her show Thursday, at which De Rossi was in the audience. Ellen's audience cheered the couple's happy news, which comes right on the heels of the California Supreme Court's ruling in favor of same-sex marriage.
