Superstar TV host Ellen Degeneres claims to be American, and she may even have a birth certificate to prove it. But Lovin Malta is today publishing undeniably proof that she is secretly Maltese. Either that, or she’s got someone Maltese very close to her – close enough to have taught her the distinctive Maltese word ‘ejja‘.
In this video clip from her show dating back to November 2016, Ellen invites Modern Family star Julie Bowen to play a game with DJ tWitch, a fixture on the Ellen show. As Ellen gets Bowen to get onto the stage and stop fooling around, Ellen says: “Ejja, you can choose whichever spot”.

Do you hear it? Ridiculous conspiracy theory or absolute fucking certainty that she’s saying ejja the Maltese way?
According to Google, ejja translates to “let’s” – as in, let’s play the game. It also means “come on”, as in, come on stop being such a cynical naysayer and accept that this is one conspiracy theory worth believing in.
Ejja, let’s make sure Ellen reads this and spills the beans on her secret nationality.
