Ellen DeGeneres tried to give tennis player Naomi Osaka one sexy birthday gift. The talk show host used Twitter to try and play matchmaker between the 21-year-old athlete and her celebrity crush Michael B Jordan as a special birthday surprise Tuesday.
‘Happy birthday, @Naomi_Osaka_. I got you a present,’ Ellen tweeted along with a shirtless photo of the handsome 31-year-old Black Panther actor.

She also tagged Jordan himself. Naomi, who beat Serena Williams to win the women’s singles title at this year’s US Open, responded with embarrassment, telling Degeneres: ‘pls block me.’
But then Michael chimed in and offered his own b-day gift to Osaka. ‘This one is better and more recent,’ he wrote along with a photo of his chiseled abs. ‘LOL Happy Belated Bday Naomi. But seriously I want to invite you to the Creed 2 premiere as a bday present.’

Miss Osaka was thrilled into disbelief, tweeting back: ‘LOL what is going on ??? Thanks for the bday wishes, If you’re serious I would totally want to go.’
