Christmas has come early for Portia de Rossi! RadarOnline.com has learned that Ellen DeGeneres is planning on 'gifting' her wife a film project to direct!
"Ellen has every intention of making Portia's directing dream come true and she and her production company are actively looking for a script for Portia to make her directorial debut on," an insider tells Radar.
Of course, DeGeneres' generous present doesn't come without strings attached. DeGeneres insists that she act as the executive producer on any project she finds for de Rossi, 42, claims the insider.
Despite the stipulation, it seems the 57-year-old talk show host's plan to help de Rossi launch a new career has had a positive effect on their relationship.
"Ellen's hands-on approach has made things way better between them," the insider notes to Radar of the couple who just celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary on Aug. 16. "Portia's always happier when she's working and directing a TV show or movie has been a lifelong goal."
