Saturday Celebrations

Today, the Material Girl turns the big 5-0! Happy Birthday Madonna!

With a hot new album, a world tour kicking off in a few days, and a body that looks better than ever, I'd say Madge has a lot to celebrate. And, according to Just Jared, she's doing just that. She's scheduled to host a lavish party at her Wiltshire home tonight.

But, an even bigger party will be thrown in California today as Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi finally tie-the-knot! And, although it's being reported that the couple are planning a small, intimate ceremony with only a few close friends and family, I'm sure there will be a lot of people celebrating this monumental occasion (myself included).

I can't wait to hear wedding details!

Update: "Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were married tonight in an intimate ceremony at their home in Los Angeles," their spokesperson tells PEOPLE exclusively.

DeGeneres, 50, and de Rossi, 35, both wore Zac Posen and exchanged rings by Neil Lane during the Saturday ceremony. Their big day also featured arrangements by L.A. florist Mark's Garden.

The intimate ceremony was attended by 19 guests, including DeGeneres's mom Betty and de Rossi's mother Margaret Rogers (who flew in from Australia for the occasion), who witnessed the couple exchange handwritten vows.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi wed at their home in Beverly Hills, California, Saturday night.

De Rossi, 35, wore a backless, light pink dress, and her hair in a loose updo. DeGeneres, 50, dressed in pants, button-up shirt and vest all in white.

Before the intimate ceremony attended by about 20 guests, "Ellen and Portia came out and posed for pictures with Ellen's mom and their two dogs," a witness tells

"They were hugging and kissing, and looked ecstatic," the onlooker adds. "Ellen was helping Portia with the train of her dress, which looked like a Cinderella tutu."

The pair, who "were both laughing," walked "all over the lawn together holding hands and posing," the witness tells Us. "The whole afternoon seemed light-hearted."

Earlier, workers were spotted bringing in bunches of pale pink and red roses.

Wedding plans have been in the works for months.
