Ellen DeGeneres is lapping up the sunshine with her wife of nine years, Portia de Rossi.

The 60-year-old television star took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to share a cute snap of the couple enjoying some well-earned beach time.

Looking relaxed, content and carefree, DeGeneres posed for a selfie while wrapping her arm around de Rossi, 45.

“Happy Spring Break, Everybody,” the talk show queen captioned the photo.

While Scandal star de Rossi is clearly responsible for the great, big, beaming smile on DeGeneres’ face, she did also bring her to tears recently -- good tears, though!

While celebrating the star’s recent 60th birthday, de Rossi appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and surprised her love by setting up the Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund – an initiative combining DeGeneres’ passion for helping animals with her hero, late primatologist, Dian Fossey.

"It’s the best gift,” DeGeneres responded. “I’ve always said -- and when we got married, Portia’s line was, 'It’s good to be loved; it’s profound to be understood' -- and she understands me because that is the best gift that anybody could have given me. So, I love you."
