Ellen Degeneres is one funny and generous woman, and there’s someone to who she credits her humor and warmth — her beloved mother, Betty Degeneres.

“Happy Birthday, Mama” features everything from Betty taking a breathalyzer test on-air and “twinning” with Ellen in matching outfits, to canoodling with hunky guests (like a naked Ashton Kutcher) and dancing for the camera, Betty proves you’re never too old to have fun and live life to the fullest. This is absolutely adorable. I don’t know which clip I love the most! Betty raised an incredible daughter, and she’s equally delightful.
Betty Degeneres Elliott Everett DeGeneres
Betty former husband, is, an insurance agent and though we do not know much about him, we do know that he was not around much during her childhood. After the separation between Ellen DeGeneres mother and Elliot in 1973, Ellen decided to go live with her mum while her brother stayed with their dad.
Though he was not around that much, in his own way the star’s father was still very present. The one occasion that Ellen spoke about her father quite a bit was when she explained his concerns for her when she came out as a lesbian in 1997. She said he didn’t like how open she was about it because what he wanted was for her to live a quiet life.
In her own words, she said, ‘ My parents divorced when I was young – they were very different personalities. My mother is a strong woman, sarcastic and sassy, and I learnt how to be a tough woman from her. My dad is a wonderful man but he has a lot of fear and he was overprotective of me.’
She added. ‘ He didn’t want me to hurt myself so he wanted me to be nice and quiet all the time and not really argue or speak my opinion. So imagine his challenge of having an openly gay child.’ In more recent news, it seems that Elliot is quite ill and the house he shares with his current wife is just not cutting it for people their age.
A neighbor hinted that the star’s father is in serious need of some help, ‘ …Hopefully, Ellen will realize that helping him move to a place with no stairs will help. I’ve never met Ellen here but I know he goes to see her. I think she just doesn’t know how hard it is for them there.’
Ellen finally lost her father in early January 2018 at the age of 92. She revealed that he was a good man and had a good life despite not having any medicine or been to the doctor in his entire life.
