By now Ellen DeGeneres is used to questions about whether or not she and wife Portia de Rossi will have children. The comedian and talk show host shared in a new interview her (hilarious) thoughts on bringing a child into the world.
Portia de Rossi, 40, and Ellen DeGeneres, 55, have been the subject of speculation for years, with media outlets wondering if the two will start a family together or not. Portia lays those rumors to rest once and for all! Portia says there will be no babies in their future.
The “Arrested Development” actress tells Out magazine, “There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, Am I going to have kids so I don’t miss out on something that other people really seem to love? Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart? I didn’t feel that my response was ‘yes’ to the latter.”
Portia says neither of them had their heart set on kids, “You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did. So it’s just going to be me and Ellen and no babies.”
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!
