Before opening her show yesterday, Ellen DeGeneres let her fans know that her father had passed away recently.

Ellen’s dad was 92 years old when he died. The talk show host let her fans know that her dad lived a great life, and she did get to say good-bye to him before he passed away.

Ellen also shared that moments after his death, she saw a rainbow above her studio, which she believed was a sign from her father.

Ellen Pays Tribute to Her Late Father

Please keep Ellen in your thoughts and prayers.
