Ellen DeGeneres is looking forward to her new wife Portia de Rossi cooking and cleaning.
The US talk show host - who wed Portia in an intimate sunset ceremony on Saturday (16.08.08) - is delighted to have tied the knot because the former 'Ally McBeal' actress will now do all the chores.
Ellen joked to People magazine: "What can I say? I'm the luckiest girl in the world. She is officially off the market. No one else gets her. And now she'll cook and clean for me."
Portia, who wore a pale pink backless halterneck gown designed by Zac Posen for the ceremony, was delighted to share her special day with her closest friends and family.
The 35-year-old star said: "The love we felt from the people surrounding us, and the love we have for each other, made it the most beautiful and emotional day. It's one that we'll never forget."
The couple, who have been dating since December 2004, exchanged handwritten vows in front of 19 guests, including Ellen's mother Betty and Portia's mother Margaret Rogers who flew in from Australia, at their home in Los Angeles.
Ellen and Portia sat on pillows during the ceremony, which was officiated by author Wayne Dyer.
Guests were treated to a vegan meal afterwards, which had been prepared by the couple's personal chef David Silberkleit.
Ellen and Portia hired Hollywood gourmet bakery Sweet Lady Jane to create a custom-made red velvet wedding cake.
Ellen admits the pair may not have a honeymoon because she is so busy filming her talk show.
She said: "I have to get back to work, this is it."
