Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are allegedly divorcing because they couldn’t agree on whether they should adopt a baby or not.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have been married for over a decade. And both have already talked about everything they want in their marriage.
One tabloid claimed that they couldn’t agree on adoption. However, one should take the report with a grain of salt because there is no piece of evidence to support it.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia allegedly arguing over child adoption
There are rumors that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s marriage is on the rocks due to their dispute over child adoption. The Ellen DeGeneres Show host allegedly asked her wife that they adopt a child. However, the Scandal actress wasn’t supportive of DeGeneres’ request.
The outlet didn’t share more details about the report and only mentioned the couple’s different stand on adoption.
Child adoption rumor debunked
One should take the report with a grain of salt. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have already spoken in previous interviews that they do not have any plans to have kids.
In DeGeneres’ 2011 book entitled Seriously… I’m Kidding, the daytime talk show host shared her conversation with Portia about having kids. Both agreed that they don’t want to have babies.
“People are constantly asking Portia and me if we are going to have children, we thought about it,” DeGeneres wrote.
“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.”
Another source said Portia supports Ellen’s plans about not having kids at home. They don’t want kids because they are already satisfied with each other’s company, along with their pets.
“Ellen and Portia have three little ones already — their dogs, Kid, Augie and Wolf. They don’t want to have actual children and Portia told Ellen that, even if she did, they are too old at this point anyways,” the source said.
Ellen and Portia adopted a kid
In one episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host announced that she and her wife, Portia de Rossi, adopted a “kid.” However, Ellen DeGeneres was only joking and was referring to their dog named “Kid,” ABC News reported.
“It really makes me appreciate what it’s like to be a mother. Because like I’m trying to hold a puppy while I’m trying to make coffee. And I can’t do anything,” DeGeneres explained.
“He doesn’t let me do anything.”
“I mean, he is absolutely adorable,” she continued. “(He’s) cute as can be, but I’ll tell you what’s not cute is to wake up at 11, and 1, and 3 and 5. And then 5 is when he’s up, up.”
