  • It's something you're going to need The Colombian stunner then ran backstage to fetch her birthday gift — and came back riding the scooter with a big bow attached

Portia made her surprise appearance on Thursday's episode of The Ellen Show and surprised her wife of almost 10 years with a very special birthday present.

Her audience was filled with people who participated in the "One Million Acts of Good" campaign.

Among those sitting in on the show were Kenya and John Hughes, a couple who used their own money to drive a U-Haul 800 miles to carry supplies to survivors of Hurricane Harvey.

DeGeneres prompted the audience to look under their seats to see if there was a box of Cheerios, and if there was they would be in for a special surprise.

The audience roared with delight as the enlarged Cheerios box was lifted up to reveal the cash prize.

Ellen DeGeneres turned 60 recently, and her wife Portia de Rossi gave her present on air, despite having nearly entirely lost her voice.

Sofia then ran backstage to fetch her birthday gift - and came back riding an electric scooter with a big bow attached to help ease the transition into her golden years.

The crowd went wild when they realized they were all in possession of a box of Cheerios.

Announcement: Ellen broke the news by saying, 'Hold onto your Cheerios because all of you are splitting one million dollars!

She explained that Ellen's hero has always been Dian Fossey, a conservationist who specialised in gorilla research, up until her tragic murder in 1985.

Ellen has had a wildlife fund set up in her name.

A clip then played in which de Rossi talks about DeGeneres' hero, the late wildlife crusader Dian Fossey.

Flawless gift for her. She also gave several birthday gifts to the talk show host such as Metamucil, the Perfect Push-Up, and a chia pet that was shaped like former U.S. President Barack Obama.
