"I’m so grateful for the love in my life. Because not everybody finds that. Not everybody finds that best friend, DeGeneres told People. "Portia and I constantly say to each other, ‘We are so lucky.’ Sometimes it’s lying in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I just say thank you to whatever, whoever is out there."

6. Lena Waithe and Alana Mayo

“I think it’ll be pretty fly,” Lena Waithe told Elle about the couple's future wedding. “She’s pretty fly. It’ll be small and intimate honestly, but she’s also like a black Audrey Hepburn, she’s old school classic, and I know I have a bit more of a swaggier style, so we complement each other really well."

“It was sweet,” Lily Tomlin told People about their wedding, after saying the secret to their 45-year relationship is simply "mutual admiration and respect". “We didn’t have any rings, so I went into our jewellery and was digging out rings. I said, ‘We have to have some kind of rings!’

8. Matt Bomer and Simon Halls

“I’d really especially like to thank my beautiful family: Simon, Kit, Walker, Henry,” Matt Bomer told the crowd while accepting an award. “Thank you for teaching me what unconditional love is. You will always be my proudest accomplishment.”
