Portia de Rossi's ring of love
13:30 28 January 2005
'Ally McBeal' star Portia de Rossi has reportedly given girlfriend Ellen DeGeneres an eternity ring - as a sign of her love.
The stunning actress, who began romancing the lesbian comic last year, bought the platinum Tiffany band for Ellen's 47th birthday on Wednesday (26.01.05).
A source close to the couple - who are not thought, however, to be engaged - told America's New York Post newspaper: "It signifies their commitment to each other."
Last month, it was reported Portia, who also gave Ellen a Porsche for Christmas, was having a tattoo of an ex-girlfriend's initials removed - to prove her love for Ellen.
Portia was said to want to herself of all traces of her last love, Ringo Starr's stepdaughter Francesca Gregorini - including the initials 'FG' which she had tattooed onto her wedding ring finger.
Meanwhile, rumours that Portia and Ellen are planning to have a baby together have been recently quashed by friends.
One said: "Portia has said many times she does not want to have a baby. She's only interested in her career right now and doesn't really even want kids in the long run."
