The couple doesn’t want to have kids.
Many people have pondered whether Ellen and Portia would have children over the years. During their interviews, pregnancy was a frequent question. The couple made it clear that they do not intend to procreate in the future. In 2009, Portia had to deny reports that she was having IVF treatment.
While the pair usually dismisses the rumors regarding their child, they could not ignore them any longer. According to her 2011 book Seriously… I’m kidding, Ellen wrote that while they enjoy having children around, they decided not to have any of their own.
