Fans may be understandably sad and surprised to hear that The Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page and wife Emma Portner are getting a divorce, since they have never seemed anything but totally in love.

Elliot Page and Emma Portner married in secret in 2018 after dating for six months.

According to ET, Page filed for divorce on Tuesday, January 26 in NY.

The Juno actor filed for a contested divorce in the Manhattan Supreme Court on January 26. I love that I am trans, and I love that I am queer.

However days after Emma expressed her "pride" over Elliot's statement, she deleted her Instagram account temporarily - although it has since been reactivated.

Page announced their marriage with an Instagram post displaying their rings on January 3, 2018, and they frequently shared moments from their travels and time together on the social media platform.

Portner's work includes choreographing videos for Canadian pop star Justin Bieber and US singer-songwriter Maggie Rogers. To all trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better. Elliot's existence is a gift in and of itself.

After an Instagram user questioned their relationship, she hit back: "I hope you know my sexual preferences and gender identity are none of your business". For me to decide, thank you. Release your labels of me. Since then, Page took to Instagram to share their first selfie since coming out.

"From the bottom of my heart, thank you", the Oscar-nominared actor wrote to his 4.5 million followers.

'Your love and support has been the greatest gift.
