Elliot Page received a birthday message from estranged wife Emma Portner amid the pair’s ongoing divorce.
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.’
Iin January, the Juno star filed legal documents seeking the dissolution of their marriage in Manhattan, according to TMZ.
The couple had been private about their romance over the years but first went public with the relationship in summer 2017.
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.
Emma is a dancer and choreographer who is currently listed as a contemporary jazz teacher at New York’s Broadway Dance Center.
She also choreographs for films and shows – including work on Elliot’s show The Umbrella Academy – as well as artists such as Justin Bieber.
Emma was one of the first to reveal her pride after Elliot came out as transgender in December.
The dancer shared a message of love and support after the Juno star revealed their pronouns in a heartfelt statement on Instagram.
