Famous TV Host, Ellen DeGeneres loses Father at 92

59-year-old television talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres has lost his father. She revealed during an emotional segment of The Ellen Degeneres Show on Thursday that her father Elliot has died at the age of 92.

In a video clip which was also shared to her Twitter account, Ellen said: 'Before we go to break, there's something else I want to talk about.

I mentioned yesterday when I was talking about all the mudslides that are going on in my community of Montecito, which is heartbreaking, I said that I had a lot going on in my life. In addition to what's going on in Montecito, I lost my dad this week.'

Ellen then showed a picture of her father with her when she was a child, and explained he had lived a 'good long life'.

She continued: 'That is my dad, Elliot. That's me when I was, I don't know how old I was, but I do remember that picture. 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 - never went to a doctor. I never had a vaccination. We never had medicine growing up. And he lived to be 92.'
