The last time the Oscar winner was on Ellen's show, she was pregnant. Ellen bet Portman would be having a little girl, and she did.
On Wednesday morning, Portman revealed to Ellen that she knew at the time she would be having a girl but "didn't want to tell everybody."
"I still made the bet because I thought that it would show either way if I didn't," she said. "But I kept good on my bet."
Portman said she donated the grand to The Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund, specifically to The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, which leads the world in protecting and studying gorillas while helping communities build their conservation capabilities.
