Ellen DeGeneres celebrated her 66th birthday by doing a grueling workout in her impressive home gym.

The talk show host’s wife Portia De Rossi shared a video of Ellen’s fitness session – which included a lot of strength training – on Instagram this Friday.

At the start of the clip, Ellen is seen doing dumbbell push-ups as she asks her model husband: ‘Are you saying this is what 66 looks like?’

Portia responded enthusiastically saying that the workout was ‘what’ your 66 bodies.’

Wearing a black T-shirt and sweatpants, DeGeneres was captured doing pull-ups and overhead presses.

Portia, 50, went on to write a loving message in her post’s caption, wishing her husband all the best on her special day.

“I am so happy to be standing next to you as we share this incredible life together. I love you.’

DeGeneres and the Ally McBeal actress first met during a concert that took place in 2001.

The latter was previously married to documentary filmmaker Mel Matcalfe, and their marriage lasted from 1996 to 1999.

The comedian and the actress reconnected at a photo shoot in 2004, and they started dating that same year.

DeGeneres and De Rossi made their red carpet debut at the 2005 Primetime Emmy Awards, and the television personality served as the host of that year’s ceremony.

The happy couple announced their engagement to the public the following May, and they tied the knot that August.

The actress surprised the television personality in February last year by arranging a vow renewal, which was officiated by Kris Jenner.

De Rossi began by expressing via Entertainment Tonight that DeGeneres was the most important part of her life.
