Looking visibly emotional, the presenter revealed to the audience that her father had passed away earlier a couple of days ago.

"Before we go to break, there's something else I want to talk about", she said in the opening of the video. We never had medicine growing up.

The host shared a touching childhood memory on Twitter and showed a rainbow shining over a poster of her the day he died. "In addition to what's going on in Montecito, I lost my dad this week", DeGeneres said. Ellen and her family were sadly forced to move her father into a facility in La Jolla, California after he fell and broke his hip in November of previous year, according to Radar Online.

DeGeneres said Elliot "was very proud of me". When I was a little girl, we came to this lot, to the Warner Bros. lot and took the tour and went around. He was very amusing, I think my brother Vance and I got our sense of humour from him. He was very proud of me, he loved this show. "There was not one bone of judgement in his body", she continued. In another tweet, DeGeneres reminisced when her dad took her to Warner Bros. "Before he passed away, I got to talk to him, so I got to say goodbye to him, and I was leaving the building and I looked back and there was a rainbow over the Warner Bros. studio".

Instead, Trump tweeted , "North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times. The island state is roughly 4,600 miles away from North Korea, making it a relatively natural target for the rogue state.

'I believe, given that the rainbow was sighted by you, right over the place they named after you, after your dad had passed, was a sign to acknowledge the love you held for him and his pride and love for you, too, ' one sweetly commented.

She even received the handsome gift of a rainbow before he died.

She mentions that the whole family only went once on a trip and that was at the Warner Brothers studios. "Pretty wonderful." We're so glad that Ellen will always have that special last memory of him.
