Portia De Rosa showed off her huge pink diamond engagement ring on the red carpet last night. Ellen and Portia also confirmed they have a wedding date all set.

Ellen told People, “Planning a wedding is very stressful. It is crazy. My gardener is now invited. I can’t wait to be married. I feel like it is long overdue. And I think someday people will look back on this like women not having the right to vote and segregation and anything else that seems ridiculous like we all don’t have the same rights.”
