Portia de Rossi surprises Ellen DeGeneres with emotional gift

But out of all of the fun throughout the show, it was De Rossi who truly made Ellen's day with the most thoughtful gift someone could give a multi-millionaire, so let's start there.

The birthday bash also ranked #1 in its time period among key Adults 25-54 and Women 25-54 in the Top 3 markets -- NY (1.6/13 Adults 25-54 rating / share), Los Angeles (1.4/12 A25-54 rating / share) and Chicago (1.2/10 A25-54 rating / share). "It's the biggest gift I have ever given anybody ever, and I hope you continue to pay it forward and share all the good".

For the Million Acts of Good campaign in collaboration with Cheerios, the beloved chat show host was able to surprise her do-gooder audience with $1 million prize.

A-list couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are basically the ideal couple because they know each other so well. Among the audience members were people who give back to the community and make a difference overall, so Ellen wanted to reward them. Fossey was known for her extensive study of mountain gorillas, and for helping to establish the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. So, I put all that together and I got you this gift.

Not only that, Portia has also created The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund to help protect vulnerable species around the world.

Happy belated birthday Ellen and Portia! "So, I love you".

It was clear by the look on the audience members' faces, they genuinely were shocked by the announcement.

Ellen looking confused while waiting for her birthday surprise. "We're all supposed to be different and unique", she said. It's like a holiday, right?

"You're so sweet. You're a truly special person", Ellen said. "Happy birthday. I'm here to just turn up". Jimmy Kimmel showed up in a figure skating costume because, why not?
