A 60th birthday gift that brought Ellen DeGeneres to tears

 Ellen DeGeneres lost it Thursday when her wife Portia de Rossi appeared on The Ellen Show with a 60thbirthday present. "It's your 60th birthday and this gift had to be really special and it had to represent who you are and what you really care about," Portia explained. "Not just now, but what you've always cared about. What you were influenced by and what has made you the amazing person that you are today. So, I combined that and questions when we first met like who's your idol? And what would you do if you weren't a talk show host?" In a video, unveiled a special new place in DeGeneres’ name in honor of the late, iconic animal rights activist Dian Fossey. "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," de Rossi said. "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!" She also set up The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund in her name. DeGeneres was clearly touched, crying and kissing her in appreciation.
