celebration of love

My husband makes me a card for every birthday, Christmas, anniversary of our first date, wedding anniversary and sometimes just to say have a nice day. They are usually odd, fun and loving, just like us as a couple. He is the communicative one and always makes me feel secure. To me love is more about safety and emotional security than chemistry. “Love is merely a madness,” Shakespeare wrote, but I think being in love is finding someone who can deal with your madness. (And in the last year, we’ve had a lot of madness!) We are all different—and love is when you find someone who adores what makes you different. In our interview on page 44, Portia de Rossi describes how her wife, Ellen DeGeneres, “made me feel more comfortable…

inside shailene & aaron’s surprise engagement

While making a virtual appearance during the NFL Honors broadcast on Feb. 6, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stunned the audience when he dropped some unexpected information into his acceptance speech for the NFL MVP award. “2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change and growth,” the star athlete said before revealing the big news: “I got engaged.” Later, after thanking his team, Rodgers, 37, thanked “my fiancée” for her support. It was a surprising announcement from the man who hadn’t publicly stepped out with anyone since his relationship with former race-car driver Danica Patrick abruptly ended last June. Just days before the revelation, multiple sources confirmed that Rodgers had been quietly dating Big Little Lies actress Shailene Woodley, 29, since last summer, after she split…

country star tj osborne comes out

TJ Osborne, the lead singer of the Grammy-nominated country duo Brothers Osborne, made history Feb. 3 when he came out as gay, becoming the only openly gay artist signed to a major country label. “I’ve kept a part of me muted, and it’s been stifling,” Osborne, 36, told Time. Other Nashville artists (including Chely Wright, Ty Herndon and Billy Gilman) have come out, but Osborne is the first to do so at the height of his career. The Maryland native told family and friends about his sexuality in his 20s but hesitated to go public in the country music world. “I don’t think I’m going to get run off the stage in Chicago,” he said. “But in a rural town playing a county fair? I’m curious how this will go.”…
