American chat show host, Ellen DeGeneres, has lent her support to the Australian ‘Yes’ vote campaign by tweeting a picture of her wife, Australian actress Portia de Rossi along with the caption: ‘I appreciate my wife every day. I can’t imagine calling her anything else. #WifeAppreciationDay #AustraliaMarriageEquality #VoteYes’.
This isn’t Ellen’s first tweet writing to her 73.5million followers about the Aussie same-sex marriage postal survey.

Last week Ellen shared a picture of the Marriage Equality Australia map logo along with ‘Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?” Yes, it should. (Let’s do this, Australia.)’

Ellen and Portia married at their Beverly Hills home on 16 August 2008, years before marriage equality was the law in the US.
