Was Anne Heche Ever Married To Ellen DeGeneres?
For Anne Heche, Ellen DeGeneres felt like the end of the tunnel she traveled inside for 27 years. She met her on the night of the Oscar 1997.
As Anne described, when she saw her, Ellen saw a radiant and ravishing woman she had never seen in her life. And it was just one week before, Ellen’s sitcom character announced her homosexuality on national TV.
Moreover, Ellen embodied everything Anne’s father couldn’t. She openly embraced her sexuality and set on her way changing the world one day at a time. And a side of Ellen made Anne fall for her.
For the first time, Anne opened up about the demons she kept inside. The assaulted life she lived as a child, living two lives, as she had an alter ego named Celestia, and many more.
The pair initiated their relationship as a lesbian couple and went on to become poster children for gay America. The relationship was highly publicized by the media garnering their relationship more attention.
And now for the main question, did she ever get married to Ellen?
Sadly, No! The pair could never see it through to the end of the aisle. As their relationship ran into trouble on the backdrop, the couple ended their romance, breaking up in 2000.
However, Anne did mention her intention of marrying Ellen. But the only problem was that Vermont hadn’t legalized gay marriage at the time.
After her relationship with Ellen, she dated James Tupper starting in 2007 when her marriage with Coley was in a bad place. They went on to build a successful relationship for 11 years and had a son named Atlas Heche Tupper born in 2009.
As everyone thought this association must be the one for Anne Heche, but it ended in January of 2018 and they pair parted separate ways.

As Anne recalled, they certainly had chemistry but without feelings. Plus, she thought Thomas hated her as he, on Anne’s word, grumbled during the breaks. Furthermore, they never spoke outside of the set.
Why did it take too long for them to get together? Anne was dating James Tupper and Thomas was married to Patricia Arquette. Nevertheless, they got in touch with each other once again when Anne’s manager relayed the message that Jane wanted to do a new project with her.
The pair’s character discussed the nature of love and spent a few hours talking about it. And the feelings for each other grew inside the couple from that point on. And this time, Thomas didn’t hold back to share his feeling for her.
As of 2020, Anne was a mother of 18-year-old son Homer whereas Thomas had a 17-year-old daughter Harlow from his ex-wife, Patricia. They’ve been working together to blend in the two families while loving and caring for each other.
