HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎂🎁🎈🎉 to my love, my other half, my constant Inspiration and supporter. My best friend. My everything✨ @austinbutler ✨28 is going to be 🔥🔥🔥
@DrewBrees is one of the most incredible friends. He wore these custom cleats, and now he’s raffling them off. He has some big shoes to fill. Here’s your chance. *link in bio @theellenfund #WeNeedGorillas #repost @drewbrees ・・・ I am raffling off these cleats this week to raise funds for the Ellen DeGeneres campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. My wife Brittany and I took these pictures in Rwanda in June while trekking these magnificent endangered animals. We also saw the future site of the Ellen Campus where conservation efforts will take place to preserve these mountain gorillas. We will personally match whatever we raise through the raffle up to $25K. Click the link in my bio to enter. Thank you.
The final step! #LocksofLove
I am so proud of my niece Eva, who donated her hair to Locks of Love! Kindness has never been this adorable.
Happy anniversary, Portia. 11 years. My favorite number with my favorite person. 📷: @laraporzak
When you find yourself on a yacht and the bathroom is all mirrors, you have a Shameless bathroom selfie shoot. Lol
I need an emoji of this immediately!
Row row row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily merrily merrily merrily, life is but a dream 🥰🥰🥰
Always looking for adventures ❤️❤️
Sardinia, you were truly a treat. How magical it was 🥰 sorry I’ve been m.i.a, but taking time away to appreciate nature and unplugging is so important. But I’m back. With a ton of Italian pics lol

#repost @sussexroyal ・・・ 🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘 Today is #WorldElephantDay and we are pleased to announce that since we followed our friends at @ElephantswithoutBorders (EWB) on Instagram in July, when we were celebrating the environment, you and our friend @TheEllenFund ( @TheEllenShow) have spread the word and EWB have been able to help protect 25 elephants by fitting them with satellite navigation collars! These collars allow the team at EWB to track the elephants, as well as to learn their essential migratory patterns to keep their corridors safe and open so future generations of elephants can roam freely. In honour of this amazing support, EWB have named their most recently collared Elephant...ELLEN! We can’t wait to see where she will go! 🐘 Two years ago on World Elephant Day, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined Dr Chase to help in this conservation effort. Below, a few words from Mike and his partner Kelly at EWB: • ‘Today is a day to honor and celebrate the majestic elephant and to make a strong stand for conserving and protecting one of the world’s most beloved animals. elephants are intelligent, sentient beings capable of emotions from joy to grief. They are ‘environmental engineers,’ a key-stone umbrella species, and the fight to save them is in effect, a fight to save entire ecosystems and all wildlife. Today elephants are facing many challenges; habitat loss and competition for resources creates conflict with humans, climate change and fires destroy much needed resources and poaching for the demand of ivory makes elephants bigger targets than ever. African elephants are especially prone to human-wildlife conflict because of their large home ranges. Finding, preserving and creating elephant corridors is therefore of great importance in helping to maintain habitats suitable for movement and minimising human-elephant conflict. Corridors are a mitigation technique to better the livelihoods of local communities and the elephants themselves, by providing environment and ample space for wildlife to navigate from one habitat patch to another, without affecting the livelihoods of communities.’ • EWB - Dr Mike Chase, Ms Kelly Landen . 📸 by DOS © SussexRoyal
You know it was a good night when this was the end of it. But not before some pasta and rose to watch the sunrise with 😝
How incredible is this? @DrewBrees is wearing these tonight in the pregame against the Vikings, and next week the Brees Dream Foundation is gonna raffle them off!
Happy #InternationalCatDay! I hope you spend it relaxing in your favorite basket. #EDEllenDeGeneres #EDPets @edbyellen
I can’t tell you how many times people have introduced me to their best friends as, “She’s my Gayle.” The reason our friendship has worked for over 40 years, without arguments or fallouts, is that we’ve always been happy with our own lives. A true friend can’t be jealous of you, or want to take advantage of you in any way. Ever since we met in 1976, we’ve been doing the same thing. Listening. Talking. Laughing (a lot). Building dreams. Cheering. Being a shoulder to cry on. Speaking the truth. Being the truth. And now? Posing for our FIRST @oprahmagazine cover for September’s friendship issue. Link in bio for more. 📸: @ruvenafanador
When life hands you lemons, hand them to a baby and get your camera.
In the beginning was the Word. Toni Morrison took the word and turned it into a Song…of Solomon, of Sula, Beloved, Mercy, Paradise Love, and more. She was our conscience. Our seer. Our truth-teller. She was a magician with language, who understood the Power of words. She used them to roil us, to wake us, to educate us and help us grapple with our deepest wounds and try to comprehend them. It is exhilarating and life-enhancing every time I read and share her work. This pic was her first appearance on the Oprah Show. She was Empress-Supreme among writers. Long may her WORDS reign!
She’s the Thelma to my Louise. She’s the sun to my flower. She’s one of a kind. My best friend. My sister. @stellahudgens happy #nationalsistersday I love you forever❤️❤️❤️
Oh hay girl hay. She’s a vibe 😉
SQUAD (we had fun😍)

Here, I’ll take it. My arms are longer.
Saw @oklahomabway last night and was BLOWN AWAY. I remember doing it when I was 10 years old in the ensemble and was in such awe of the genius of this production. Every aspect of it serves the story so well and done with absolute perfection. Brilliantly directed, acted, sung, musically arranged, danced, lit, just EVERYTHING. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TO GO SEE IT ASAP. bravo team. Bravo.
Bows and stripes forever.
Well a day late but happy #internationalkissingday 😝❤️💋
Somebody please put me in this basket.
This is definitely a can-do attitude. Happy #4thofJuly!
I hope you’re crushing summer as hard as this baby.
#ad As someone who grew up in the public eye, I get a lot of questions about tips for keeping my body red carpet ready. The answer is simple, accountability is key 🔑 and you need to make your health a priority every day. What works for me might not work for you but we all have one thing in common—our mouths. Working out and eating right is only part of the equation, but many of us (I know I am guilty of this) don’t prioritize our mouth like we do for the rest of our body and that needs to change! If you don’t take care of your mouth, all sorts of scary things can happen. That said, I made a promise to myself to kick my oral care up a notch and started using the new @colgate Total SF formula. Not only does it help keep my smile white and fight against cavities, it also offers a ton of amazing benefits such as sensitivity relief, enamel protection and odor neutralization so that I know I am covered in-between my trips to the dentist. #NewColgateTotal #ColgatePartner
Red, white, and adorablue.
Omg u guys I’m doing my first big voice over and having the BESSSST TIMMMMEEE EVERERRRR 🦄🐴🌈
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY LOVE @ashleytisdale we’ve done so much life together. Can’t imagine it any other way. So excited to see what this year brings u love. You deserve the world 🌎 love yoooou ❤️❤️❤️❤️🌹
We have to stand up for elephants, or there won’t be any left to stand up for. #BeKindToElephants #repost @theellenfund ・・・ This news from Botswana is heartbreaking. Elephants are being hunted in one of the last safe spaces available. #BeKindToElephants *link in bio

🌸Happy gal 🌸
This ever happen to y’all...You start out on one side and get edged out of your own bed. #3dognight 😂
Go follow @EDbyEllen! If they hit 1M followers, one follower is gonna win a $1,000 EDbyEllen gift card! I’m so excited, I fell off the couch.
They call it mellow yellow 😉
It’s a good thing I don’t have a segment called “Ellen Rate My Baby and Dog,” because this would win.
I’m flashing my baby blues for our flash sale on sunglasses! Happy #nationalsunglassesday! @edbyellen
#ad Giving you those #fierce eyes todayyy 😝🤪😘 shop my collection with @avia.official at avia.com #VHxAvia

My new favorite pool floatie. #EllenSummerPhotos
Summer nights ❤️❤️
This one’s a wiener.
9:45 am this morning sitting with @janetdacal working on our scripts for the notebook. I’ve continued on in my day with such beautiful deep, honest and raw conversations about life. Also realized it was my dads birthday today. He would have been 69. Celebrating him thru all this love couldn’t have been more perfect.
My kinda dog. #Pride
#ad Nothing better than feeling good in what you’re wearing at the gym for that extra boost of life. Shop my @avia.official collection at avia.com #VHxAvia
Most comfortable show I’ve done EVER! IN SNEAKERS 👟👟 Almost burned last night’s heels but instead I gave them to an audience member in tonight’s show. All I have to say to her is: Wear them, put them in your closet, use them as sculpture…just bless your feet 🤣🤣 Thank you, Edmonton! Last stop: Vancouver! #PathMadeClear
What a joy to be working on this piece. Truly a transcendent, universal story of love. Honored to be able to tell this story and sing these songs that make me BALL my eyes out every time lol @powerhouse_thtr @ingridmichaelson
Send me your favorite summer photos! Use #EllenSummerPhotos and tag @ellentube. Just don’t drop your phone in the pool while you do it.
#ad When you start your day doing something good for yourself, it sets the tone for the rest of the day. Yeah, going to the gym at 5AM is great, but my guess is that you head into to the bathroom before doing anything else. Soooo let’s start there. Brushing our teeth is something we all do (at least I hope lol) but the products you use can make a HUGE difference. Your oral care goes way beyond what the eye can see. I personally love the new @Colgate Total SF formula because it takes care of my WHOLE mouth and offers a ton of amazing benefits like odor neutralization, enhanced enamel strength and sensitivity relief! So try it out and smile on ;) #NewColgateTotal #ColgatePartner
Calgary I loved being with you tonite🇨🇦...but my feet died about 20 minutes into the show. Could you tell?! The pitch of the shoe was killing the balls of my feet and I could barely move. Looking for a fire pit to burn these shoes!🔥🔥 #PathMadeClear
Thank you Montreal. 3 cheers to you all and loved walking in your beautiful Mount Royal Park! Now off to Calgary tonight! If you’re coming to the show, I want to know: Where are you on your path and what is the dream you hold for yourself? Link in bio for tickets. #PathMadeClear 🇨🇦
Everyone says Canadians are kind and that was proven especially true in Montréal tonight. Thank you for giving me your Sunday night, I loved being with you. Enjoy the Toronto @raptors parade tomorrow! #PathMadeClear 🇨🇦
The perfect look for your office pride party. They have those, right?
Look who came for dinner @chicagosmayor and wife Amy. Our first time meeting. #sweethomechicago
Going back to standup was scary, exciting and challenging, but I’m glad I did it. I’ve loved of every second of it. @NetflixIsAJoke #FYC
And what about this scene? @niecynash1 you killed it with @msisisking. Still haunted by @whentheyseeus. If you haven’t seen yet...please do. And for everyone who says it’s “hard to watch,” think about the people who still find it “hard to live.” All those families impacted! So proud of my sister friend @ava!
Mahk is heah tomorrah.
Now this is some good news.

You won’t believe what Portia put in my Easter basket.
Don’t miss this dance party with Captain Marvel and Black Widow tomorrow.
Maya would have been 91 today! This is my favorite picture of us. Even in death I feel the “unbroken continuity” of her mother-sister-friendship referenced in the Henry Scott Holland canon 🙏🏽❤️ Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away to the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, That, we still are. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect. Without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same that it ever was. There is absolute unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you. For an interval. Somewhere. Very near. Just around the corner. All is well.
Wanna get Lifted?!! So many of you are. It makes me so happy that 5 million downloads are resonating across the planet. I’ve been binge listening myself. And I declare, I still learn something new and rejuvenating every time. We’re halfway through our 10 part series. Come binge with me on #ANewEarth and feel the Lift!
I’m so excited to share with you the first look at our new scripted drama #DavidMakesMan. I knew as soon as I heard the pitch from @octarell_again that this was something that the world needed to see.
Can’t stop thinking about this movie. #Capernaum Saw it 3 days ago. Didn’t know when I watched it that the cast members were real people. Including these 2 phenomenal kids. Story of a young boy who sues his parents to stop having children they can’t afford. It’s about that and so much more. Surviving the daily traumas of being poor,proving your existence matters with no “papers.” Was nominated for Golden Globes. Hope the same happens for Oscars so more people can see it. Really worthy of your time. #Capernaum means chaos.
I couldn’t think of a better way to show how powerful and intense this season of @iyanlavanzant is going to be, besides showing you this. Iyanla stirring that tea cup gives me chills ☕️Everybody, breathe. The new season of #FixMyLife starts Tonight, 9p|8c.
