Actress Ellen Page has married her girlfriend Emma Portner, she announced on Instagram.

"Can't believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife," she wrote to caption a photograph of their wedding rings.

The Juno star is a prolific LBTQ rights activist and a co-host of the Emmy-nominated Viceland series Gaycation.

Ms Portner is a Canadian dancer, teacher and choreographer based in New York City. She choreographed for Justin Bieber after New Zealand's own Parris Goebel saw her work.

The couple are said to have met on Instagram.

Ms Page publicly announced she was gay in 2014, during a speech at a Human Rights Campaign event to a crowd of hundreds.

"I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission," she said.

"I suffered for years because I was scared to be out... And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain."

The pair haven't spoken publicly about their relationship, but have been sharing some seriously cute couple shots on Instagram for several months.
