Ellen DeGeneres Celebrates Her 60 Birthday, And People Refuse To Believe Her Age
It seems that time has no effect on Ellen DeGeneres. On January 26, the chat show host is celebrating a big day: She’s turning 60! And this fact surprised her followers and fans all over the world. Indeed, how can she possibly turn 60 when she looks so much younger?
Why do we like her?
Ellen’s energy, kindness, and ability to make us laugh have no boundaries. She is always youthful, playful, and beaming with joy. It feels like she's been a part of our lives forever.
In fact, she has been with us for 15 seasons of her comedy talk show (which is almost 15 years)! And what is more important, although she gets older, DeGeneres still amazes us with her incredible bouncy humor.
How did fans react?
We all know Ellen loves rating her staff members and fans’ babies on a scale from one to ten. It may sound weird, but her comments are actually sweet and hilarious, and she never gives less than ten points! But to mark the occasion, Ellen decided to change the rules and asked her 60-year-old viewers to send their videos and photos to rate them.
I can’t believe I’m going to be 60 this week! I love rating your babies, but this week, I want to rate the 60-year-olds in your life.

Apparently, the host herself was surprised by that fact that she was going to turn 60. So what can be said about other people whose reaction was mostly disbelief and shock? Here are some of the fans’ reactions shared on Twitter.
Some were definitely shook. A lot of admirers showered the host with the warmest words possible. And others just mentioned that Ellen is a great inspiration for many of her devotees.
ELLEN HAS AN AGE!? I THOUGHT SHE WAS IMMORTAL! ????
