It looks like Ellen DeGeneres is ready to become a celebrity mom! Rumor has it that she and her partner Portia De Rossi are having extreme baby fever and are ready to start a family on their own. Sources say that Portia has finally convinced Ellen that the two should have a child together.
“Portia put the baby issue on the back burner for years knowing Ellen wasn’t altogether receptive,” a friend says, according to reports. “I think Ellen has had misgivings about chasing after a young one when she’ll be into her 60s. But Portia turns 40 in January, and in the end, Ellen loves Portia with all her heart. If a baby is that important to Portia, Ellen can’t say no to her.”
“Now the biggest question is who the male donor will be,” said the friend. “But once they clear all the hurdles, next year is going to be the year for them. Portia has assured Ellen she doesn’t need to slow down one bit,” the friend says. “Portia loves her acting career, but it’s a small part of her life. What she wants most is happiness with Ellen and sharing their love with a child.”
Here’s hoping they’ll have their baby soon. Fingers crossed!
