Date February 6, 2018

While celebrating the 60th birthday anniversary, Ellen DeGeneres is feeling the love of all of her friends. On Thursday's special episode of The Ellen Show, the TV host had some quality time with surprise guests who stopped by to wish her many happy years to come.

Celeb guests

For example, Sofia Vergara presented the comedian with something she might need due to her age – an electric scooter! Chance, the Rapper, surprised the daytime talk show host with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Jamie Fox threw a quick dance party and completed it with champagne. And we didn't even mention all of the wishes and warmest words on the social media.

But Jimmy Kimmel has definitely surprised us with his present and congratulations that might be the funniest out of all.

While Ellen was busy recalling what she did and didn’t do during previous interactions with luminaries appearing on her show (which is a difficult task as she has been on it for 15 years!), she was asked if Jimmy Kimmel had ever visited her wearing a figure skating form. She replied:

That sounds like he would for sure do that.

And the host was right, the comedian emerged from backstage in a stunning outfit trying to perform a skating routine. After he sat down and joined Ellen for a quick chat, Jimmy revealed that he was surprised to learn about her age.

Of course, Kimmel didn’t come empty-handed; he stood up and retrieved his gift from the inside of his outfit. Handing out a banana to Ellen, Jimmy shared the reason for such a weird present:

So important...bone density is really something you have to look out for...you can have this later.

But the real surprise came at the end of the show. Ellen’s wife, Portia de Rossi, made a donation to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in Rwanda, where a special DeGeneres complex will be built to deal with the extinction of mountain gorillas.

DeGeneres repeatedly said that she admires Dian Fossey, an ethologist and popularizer of wild nature who became famous for studying gorillas.
