Washington, September 29 : TV host Ellen DeGeneres has revealed that she has become a 'softer' person since her recent marriage with Portia de Rossi.
The eleven-time Emmy Award winning stand-up comedian admits that she has become a better person post-marriage, reports People magazine.
"My heart just feels a little bit different, softer and somehow more in love," she says.
"I don't know how. But it just feels really romantic and lovely.
"I just feel really blessed," she adds.
The comedian also admits to few minor adjustments in her personal life that she has had to make since her marriage.
"I keep saying 'my girlfriend,' but I have to go to 'wife'," she says.
Ellen is amongst many other high-profile protesters who recently opposed California's 'Proposition 8' that would seek to ban same-sex marriages in the state.
The 'Ellen' talk show host has made her annual mission to discover a new anti-breast cancer program to support.
She said: "My mom, 30 years ago, had a mastectomy. It's changed my life because I'm highly aware I'm vulnerable to this disease and I get a mammogram every year".
