Plus, “the emotional labor” of taking care of Ella when she couldn’t cope at all.
“I’ve never seen anything like it. How overwhelming his love is. It’s emotional being loved like this – being in the light of someone so kind and generous and gentle. Max, I adore you,” the star added.
Overall, Ella labeled Max to be a “wonderful, vibrant, funny, talented, and smart,” person. She love the way he treated people and interacted with the world. And having found him was the greatest joy in life for her. “You bring out the best in me, and then some. Thank you for standing up for me and inspiring me in everything you do and teaching me so much. You feel made for me, and I feel made for you, and I know that’s gross and corny but I don’t care because that’s how you make me feel. You are the greatest partner,” Ella praised him a little more.
