In addition, the talk-show host managed to squeeze in a birthday shoutout to Justin Timberlake and Kerry Washington, who have the same birthday as de Rossi.

She explained that Ellen's hero has always been Dian Fossey, a conservationist who specialised in gorilla research, up until her tragic murder in 1985. The sanctuary will be the first initiative of the The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund, a foundation that Portia set up in Ellen's name.

"It is the biggest gift I have ever given anybody ever, and I hope that you continue to pay it forward and share all the good".

Watch out Oprah, Ellen Degeneres is taking gift giving to another level. "I am proud, humbled, honored and deeply grateful to get to introduce you to my wonderful new wildlife fund".

The Arrested Development star went on to recall some of the questions the duo discussed when they first met each other, including who their idols were and what they'd be doing if they weren't in the entertainment industry.

On Bell Let's Talk Day, Leafs Continue Conversation for Mental Health
According to their web site, it was back in September 2010 that Bell Let's Talk began a conversation about Canada's mental health. So many people, from so many walks of life, are talking about something that affects them or those they care about.


The longtime talk show host turned 60 on January 26, 2018, but the festivities continued beyond that.

"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 says. She then told the audience to check under their seats to see if they had a box of the breakfast snack, as every lucky chair would be winning a prize. "What you were influenced by and what has made you the unbelievable person that you are today".

From there, she let a video she'd put together reveal the gift to DeGeneres as well as the audience.

'All season long, I partnered with Cheerios to encourage people to do one million acts of good and if you're here in my audience, you helped us reach that goal.
