Halifax-born Ellen Page marries New York dance teacher

Halifax-born actress Ellen Page is now a married woman.

The Oscar-nominated "Juno" star has wed Emma Portner, who teaches contemporary jazz at the Broadway Dance Center in New York.

Page shared the news yesterday on Instagram, posting a photo of the couple's hands showing off wedding bands on their ring fingers.

The 30-year-old publicly came out as gay in 2014 during an emotional speech at the Time to Thrive conference.
