Portia De Rossi's Birthday Gift To Ellen DeGeneres Will Make You Cry

"That is the best gift that anybody could have given me..."

Posted on

Ellen DeGeneres recently celebrated her 60th birthday, and it was quite the celebration — her guests this week included Michelle Obama and Jennifer Aniston.

Portia explained that she wanted to get Ellen a gift that she truly would care about — and it also had to be something charitable, since Ellen always says, "I feel like I’m not doing enough."


“I am bringing you and your hero Dian together by building the Ellen DeGeneres campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. You will carry on Dian’s legacy by giving them a permanent home in Rwanda.”


On top of that incredible gesture, Portia ALSO set up the Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund in her name.

Needless to say, people got pretty emotional about the whole thing...

Portia’s gift to Ellen really has me crying right now

Ellen and Portia are true couple goals forever, this is so beautiful


@TheEllenShow I need someone who loves me like Portia loves her Ellen 💕

For all the ultimate relationship goals and feels, watch the whole friggin' sweet thing:
