Yesterday was Portia de Rossi's 40th birthday. So on her daytime talk show today, Ellen DeGeneres paid tribute to her wife of four years.

In the sketch called "de Bold, de Beautiful, de Rossi", Ellen plays Portia and Ellen is played by Sean Hayes in what is probably his best performance since Will & Grace — and, yes, I'm counting The Three Stooges.

The whole thing is very sweet everyone deserves a birthday tribute on network television like this.
