We’re sending lots of love to Ellen this week because her father, Elliot Degeneres, has died at the age of 92. Ellen shared that her father lived a good, long life and had been preparing for his death for a while. She shared about their only vacation they’ve ever had when she was younger: the Warner Bros. Studio (which is where she tapes her show). She said he was a very open minded man and proud of all her work.
Here’s where you’ll need the tissues…She said that as she was leaving the Warner Bros. Studio after taping, she was able to say goodbye to him on the phone…and as she turned around, she saw a rainbow over her studio with her picture on it. Her father had passed 10 minutes after that conversation.
“I got a rainbow before he died,” she said.
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. pic.twitter.com/QQswe3mwfi
