Oh, Ellen Degeneres, we thought you loved kids? Okay, well maybe she does – on her show anyway – but she didn’t seem to be too pleased upon hearing that she was wanting to start a family with her partner Portia. The two who got married in 2008 were supposedly thinking about adopting a child – and no, they were not thinking of Sophia Grace or Rosie – but it seems that wasn’t true.
Appearing on the Jay Leno show, the talk-show host quickly shut down the rumors with her humorous side, trying to make it all one big joke: “I am here for your sperm. That is not true. I don’t know why people want us [to have children]… I’ve said it so many times – we are not going to have a child. And they say that we’re looking for the right donor.”
However, Ellen continued that if she was to consider having children, Jay would be the donor – of course, jokingly: “The kid would have beautiful blue eyes and a good sense of humour and a good shot at an NBC show and we would do well. I don’t want to have one. I don’t want to have six. I don’t want to have any. They’re precious to look at – I love them. We have nieces, and I love them very much. Don’t want them.”
Ellen returns later this month.
