The Actress and talk show host of The View got very emotional during the show this morning as she celebrated her 60th birthday. She was surprised by celebrity friends Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal today on the show. She also took time to pay tribute to her late friend Robin Williams.

“I want to thank two people that I…I’m so much better for knowing and that’s Billy and Robin,” Goldberg said, after being presented with a patriotic-themed birthday cake, “They’re my…my loves and my hearts and so, I, you know, he’s always with us, I think.”

During the show, she was also joined by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse performers and was made an honorary Mousketeer. The View airs on ABC, which is owned by the Walt Disney Company. Happy birthday Whoopie!
