Ellen DeGeneres turned 60 (wow,she looks good for 60) last Friday and her wife ,Portia de Rossi gave her the “best gift”. The actress presented her gift in a surprise appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that aired Thursday. Portia played a video of Ellen’s Hero, Dian Fossey, an American scientist who studied gorillas in Africa and was murdered in 1985.She said;

“It’s your 60th birthday, and this gift had to be really special and it had to represent who you are and what you really care about,” de Rossi said. “So, I combined that with the fact that literally guys, for like the last two years, Ellen has said to me, ‘I feel like I’m not doing enough.’ Every day, almost. So, I put all that together and I got you this gift.” 

“So, for your birthday, Ellen, I am bringing you and your hero Dian together by building the Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund,” de Rossi said. “Ellen, you will carry on Dian’s legacy by giving them a permanent home in Rwanda.”

“Now, you will join Dian as a protector and champion of these amazing animals, the mountain gorillas,” de Rossi added. “Happy birthday.”

Aww,that’s really sweet. Ellen wiped away her tears and said;

“It’s the best gift,” “When we got married, Portia’s line was, ‘It’s good to be loved. It’s profound to be understood.’ And she understands me, because that is the best gift that anybody could have given me.”
