Sure, Ellen DeGeneres is a funny lady, but she’s also one of the most loving, genuine, and sincere people on television today. Her birthday gift to wife Portia de Rossi was a skit that encapsulated all this and more—just try not to tear up at the end! With the help of actor Sean Hayes and musician Joshua Radin, Ellen acts out highlights from Portia’s life, including her birth in Australia, her move to London, and her roles on Ally McBeal and Arrested Development (can’t wait for the new season!). It all wraps with a faux wedding and a montage of Ellen (played by Hayes) and Portia’s eight years together.
