Ellen celebrating her 60th birthday with an incredibly meaningful present from Portia de Rossi.

Ellen DeGeneres burst into tears after receiving the “best” birthday gift from Portia de Rossi.

Portia appeared on Thursday’s episode of The Ellen Show and surprised her wife with a very special 60th birthday present. The actress then played a recorded birthday message in which she paid tribute to Ellen’s hero Dian Fossey, whose pioneering work with gorillas was immortalized in Gorillas in the Mist.

Before she was murdered in 1985, the scientist founded the Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda to observe and protect mountain gorillas there.

De Rossi then revealed the incredible present by saying “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 will carry on Dian’s legacy by giving them a permanent home in Rwanda”.
