At the age of 65, Ellen has had her fair share of broken hearts and failed relationships. Earlier in her life, she was romantically linked with actor, Gabriel Bryne. They met at the set of Siesta in 1987 and began dating soon after. A year later, they tied the knot on 18  September 1988.

In 1989, they grew their family and welcomed a son named Jack Daniel Bryne. The couple later added another member, their second son Romy Marion Byrne in 1992. However, in 1993, Ellen and Gabriel separated due to undisclosed reasons and officiated their split with a divorce in 1999.
