Elliot Page received a birthday message from estranged wife Emma Portner amid the pair’s ongoing divorce.

The Umbrella Academy star surprised fans when they filed for divorce in January, after three years of marriage.

However, the duo has made it clear they still remain close despite the split, with Emma taking to Instagram on Sunday to mark Elliot’s 34th birthday.

Sharing a picture of Elliot playing the guitar on her Instagram Story, the dancer simply wrote: ‘Happy birthday @elliotpage [sparkles emoji].’

In a joint statement to announce their split, the pair told People: ‘After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer. We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends.’

The pair reportedly met through social media after Emma caught Elliot’s eye when the Inception star stumbled upon one of her dancing videos.

They went on to tie the knot in January 2018 and have been living together in New York City.

She also choreographs for films and shows – including work on Elliot’s show The Umbrella Academy – as well as artists such as Justin Bieber.
