Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are again facing divorce rumors amid reports that Portia has changed her mind about wanting a baby, while Ellen won’t budge in her desire not to have children.
Reports have circulated for months that there is trouble in the couple’s marriage, including rumors that Ellen is controlling over Portia’s work life and that Portia resents Ellen’s relationships with other women.
But the most recent divorce rumors facing Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi focus on the couple’s longstanding agreement not to have children. A recent report from the National Enquirer says that Portia has decided she now wants a baby.
“I heard you and Portia are having a baby,” Leno told DeGeneres. “Is this true?”
“I’m here for your sperm,” DeGeneres replied. “That is not true. I don’t know why people want this. 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. Although, you would be a good donor, so I’ll keep it in mind, just in case. I mean, it would have beautiful blue eyes, and a good sense of humor, and a good shot at a NBC show. We would do well.”
It’s unclear if there is any basis for the current Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi divorce rumors. While there have been continual reports of trouble with the couple, Ellen has steadfastly denied them and said everything is great in the marriage.
The newest rumor also comes just a few days after a separate report that Portia de Rossi is already pregnant, a rumor that again had no backing outside of anonymous sources.
One thing is for certain — if Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are getting a divorce over Portia’s desire to have a baby, neither of them are talking about it.
