Elliott DeGeneres, proud father of Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres is paying tribute to her late father Elliott DeGeneres, who sadly passed away earlier this week.

During an episode of her daytime talk show, Ellen shared how the deadly wildfires had forced her and wife Portia de Rossi to evacuate their home in Montecito, a wealthy coastal enclave north-west of Los Angeles.

"He had a good, long life, and he lived his life exactly how he wanted".

DeGeneres went on to talk about her father's kindness and humor.

Ellen recalled a childhood vacation with her father on which they took a tour of the Warner Bros. lot, where she now presents her show. "He loved this business". "Today, I need you because there's a lot going on in my life right now". Now I work on the lot and have my own stage with my name on it.
