Ellen DeGeneres’ father, Elliot DeGeneres, has passed away. The 59-year-old television talk show host revealed during an emotional segment of The Ellen Degeneres Show on Thursday that her father has died at the age of 92, reports EOnline.com.
During the latest show, Ellen honoured her late father in a moving tribute. “In addition to what’s going on in Montecito, I lost my dad this week. He was 92 years old. He had a good, long life,” she said.
“It wasn’t unexpected. I was able to say goodbye. When I was a kid, my dad took us on one vacation to Warner Bros Studios. He loved this business. He loved that I was in it. When he died, I saw this rainbow over the stage they named for me,” she added. She also posted a few old photos of her with her father on Instagram.
