Ellen DeGeneres revealed on the Thursday, January 11, episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that her father has passed away.

“In addition to what’s going on in Monetico, I lost my dad this week,” the TV host, 59, told her audience on Thursday, referring to the Santa Barbara mudslide. “He was 92 years old.  He had a good, long life. And he lived his life exactly how he wanted. He was Christian science his entire life. He never had medicine his whole life. He never went to a doctor. We never had a vaccination. We never had medicine growing up and he lived to be 92.”

She continued, “He was very proud of me. He loved this show. He was a kind man, very accepting man. There was not one bone of judgment in his body. He was very funny … Before he passed away I got to talk to him, so I got to say goodbye to him.”
