Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have had to fight off numerous rumours that they are trying to get pregnant through IVF, so in her new book "Seriously... I'm Kidding" Ellen clears things up by saying: "We thought about it. We love to be around children after they've been fed and bathed. But we ultimately decided that we don't want children of our own. There is far too much glass in our house."
While the pitter-patter of little human feet may not be on the cards for the superstar couple, both women have their hands full with plenty of other little creatures. Ellen writes: "We have two dogs, Mabel and Wolf, and three cats at home, Charlie, George and Chairman. We have two cats on our farm, Tom and Little Sister, two horses, and two mini horses, Hannah and Tricky, We also have two cows, Holy and Madonna. And those are only the animals we let sleep in our bed."
Speaking about the rumours, Portia has said in the past: "The baby [rumor] comes around annually. I find … once a year, you know, whether I deny it or not … It doesn’t make any difference.” The baby rumors have become somewhat of a joke for the couple. Portia even appeared on Ellen's show after pregnancy reports first surfaced. She joked to Ellen, "So I hear we are having a baby. I probably should have told you before the tabloids told you."
