After many years as a successful stand-up comedian, TV host and actress Ellen DeGeneres finally got her star on the Hollywood Boulevard's Walk of Fame on Tuesday (September 4).

The 54-year-old wore a crisp gray suit with a polka-dotted tie to the event, where supporters like her mother, Betty, and wife, Portia de Rossi watched her put her hands in cement.

Fellow comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel spoke about his friend, along with "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest.

Never to miss an opportunity for a joke, the crop-topped comedian posted on her Facebook wall, "I'm getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today at 11am. Come watch me! Also, I'd love a ride home. 6270 Hollywood Blvd."

The honor caps off a series of celebrations as her and Portia celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary last week and Ellen celebrated ten years of hosting "The Ellen Degeneres Show."
