“It was just fate, to be honest with you,” she said of that moment.
She said it was an electric moment the likes of which she hadn’t felt before.
“Walking down the red carpet holding my girlfriend’s hand is pretty special,” Ellen said.
“It’s pretty awesome.” In 2013, comedian Tig Notaro fell for her straight friend Stephanie Allynne while shooting a Netflix documentary called “Tig,” and in a surprising turn of events, Stephanie returned her affection.
At age 31, Lauren is now able to live openly and authentically with her partner as they walk hand-in-hand on the beach or attend awards shows decked out in elegant gowns. “I’m happy in a way I don’t think I’ve ever been.” This dynamic pair enjoys hockey, surfing, and sharing outdoor adventures.
Ellen said what’s great about their relationship is the support for each other’s booming careers.
