"Look what my wife did for our wedding anniversary," DeGeneres tweeted Monday along with a photo of her and de Rossi beneath a giant "six" written in the sky.
Skywriting has become a go-to gift from de Rossi, 41, to DeGeneres, 56, over the years, but this most recent declaration of love comes as the whispers of marital problems between the two have grown louder than ever.
"They've had their ups and downs," a source told PEOPLE in July. "Portia has been very outspoken about previous issues, like her eating disorder, and she's good at seeking help when she needs to. They've worked out difficulties in the past, and no doubt they're trying to work out any problems right now."
But DeGeneres has scoffed at the speculation.
"One tabloid said Portia's leaving me because she doesn't like moving a lot," she told PEOPLE in February. "Which is funny because she is overseeing the construction of our new house and loving it."
As for what is really going on, the saying goes, "the writing is on the wall" but perhaps "the writing is on the sky" would be more appropriate.
