On Thursday's episode of Ellen, host Ellen DeGeneres revealed that her father Elliot had passed away at the age of 92.
'Before we go to break, there's something else I want to talk about. I mentioned yesterday when I was talking about all the mudslides that are going on in my community of Montecito, which is heartbreaking, I said that I had a lot going on in my life. In addition to what's going on in Montecito, I lost my dad this week," she shared.
"He was 92 years old, he had a good long life, and he lived his life exactly how he wanted."
Ellen went on to say that she and her brother Vance got their sense of humor from their father.
"My dad was very proud of me. He loved this show and he was a kind man, very accepting man," she noted.
