During the course of their relationship, there have been a lot of rumors claiming Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres want to have children. They’ve routinely come forward and shot them down, but that doesn’t stop them from popping back up year after year.
The latest batch comes from Showbiz Spy, who claims that DeGeneres and de Rossi could adopt as early as 2014.
“Ellen and Portia have been talking about starting a family. They’re thinking about adoption — they’d love to give a home to a child in need,” an insider says. “Ellen never wanted to have to kids, but she’s warming to the idea as Portia is so desperate to be a mom. “Expect an announcement next year!”
Even Showbiz Spy says to take that news with a grain of salt. Back in April, de Rossi told Out magazine that neither she nor her wife want kids.
“We’ve settled into happily married life. We really support each other in whatever we’re doing and we’re incredibly happy, which is why you don’t see us in the press so much. There’s no drama to report,” de Rossi said. Of having children, she adds, “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 — but we’re the best of friends and married life is blissful, it really is. I’ve never been happier than I am right now.”
