Ellen DeGeneres' Birthday Gift From Portia de Rossi Made Her Cry - Watch the Touching Moment!

Portia de Rossi surprised her wife Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show to celebrate her 60th birthday.

On the show, Portia gave Ellen her birthday gift – which made Ellen cry! The gifting started with a video, which had Portia doing a voice over.

“When people ask my wife, ‘who is the person, living or dead, you most want to interview?’ her answer is always Dian Fossey,” Portia said in the video. “Ellen remembers reading National Geographic at home as a little girl and remembers Dian on the cover of the January 1970 magazine. Ellen was struck by Dian‘s dedication to animals, her mind, and her bravery. Ellen read how in 1967 Dian Fossey set up a camp she called Karisoke in the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda. This is where Dian began studying several dozen gorillas, and at that time, Dian was alone in protecting them.”

“Fast forward 18 years and the world was sad to learn that Dian was murdered in 1985 in her cabin at Karisoke. Most of us know Dian‘s work from her book, ‘Gorillas in the Mist,’ which is legendary and carried on her story. Her story is also carried on through the work of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. The Fossey Fund exists to ensure the survival and thriving of wild gorillas, in close partnership with the government of Rwanda. But unfortunately, today there are only 880 mountain gorillas alive on earth. Thus, the work of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund remains vitally important to ensuring their future,” Portia continued.

“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. 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. Happy birthday!,” the video concluded. Watch below for the full reveal!
