Ellen is planning a trip down under (no pun intended) to meet her girlfriend Portia De Rossi's family--ahead of their planned wedding.
Ellen says, "I've met Portia's mother and her cousins, and I mentioned last night that we should go (to Australia) for Christmas. I can't wait to get there. I'd like to get the show there. I'm going to push hard to make that happen."
Ellen and Portia's love seems so genuine, it's easy to forget they're still a Hollywood couple.
