With the decision yesterday by the California Supreme Court that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, the path has been cleared for long-time partners Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi to finally walk down the aisle together.

And according to a report from the Associated Press, Ellen announced during yesterday’s taping of her highly rated talk show that she and her actress gal-pal plan to do just that.

In the episode, slated to air today (Friday, May 16), the 50-year-old comedienne told her audience that she and Portia, who was also on-hand for the announcement, would be getting married, news which was greeted with roaring applause from Ellen’s fans.
