*Oprah Winfrey’s visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” today doubled as the perfect chance for the host to give the surprise of a lifetime to Tiffany Haddish.

Knowing how much the “Girls Trip” star loves her some O, Ellen plotted the perfect surprise when Winfrey stopped by to promote her latest film “A Wrinkle in Time.”

Haddish was in the interview chair recalling her encounter with Oprah on the set of “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” which Winfrey produced.

“She had walked by and I was making all the other extras laugh… She said, ‘You’re a very funny young lady.’ I was like [eeeee!] and she said, ‘What’s your name?’ I said, ‘My name is Tiffany Haddish, and I’m a stand-up comedian,'” Haddish recounted.

She said Winfrey told her that she loves comedy and asked that she write to her to update her on her career. Haddish followed through with the request but wondered why Winfrey never wrote back. It was during this moment that Ellen called Winfrey to come on stage.

“Let’s ask her why she didn’t write back. Oprah, why didn’t you write back?” DeGeneres asked and out came Winfrey, who has been hiding backstage the entire time.

Haddish clearly looked surprised when she turned around and saw her idol walking toward them with her arms open wide as if to say, “I don’t know.”
