Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi are thankful that they don’t have to spend the holidays hunting down Frozen dolls or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures.
During a recent segment on her show, Ellen DeGeneres poked fun at the silly holiday letters that some families send out at the end of the year. She complained that they’re annoying because people “over-share, they make it sound like their lives are perfect, they exaggerate, they brag about everything in their family.”
The Huffington Post shared a video of Ellen reading her holiday letter, and in it she mentioned being child-free.
“Luckily, Portia and I don’t have any kids to tell you about, although, according to the tabloids, we’ve been pregnant 16 times alone this year.”
During an interview with OUT magazine, Portia de Rossi talked about the decision she and Ellen DeGeneres made to remain child-free.
“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.”
According to Us Weekly, Ellen told Jay Leno that she’s not going to change her mind about having babies.
“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 and I love them; we have nieces and I love them very much. [But I] don’t want ’em.”
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi might not have any kids to brag about in their holiday letter, but their family update couldn’t get any more impressive. In the video clip below, Ellen brags about getting her wife to spill Scandal spoilers, getting to chat with Jennifer Aniston and former president Bill Clinton, and hosting the Oscars. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Ellen and Portia also recently celebrated being together for a decade. That’s a very impressive feat in Hollywood.
No one will want to send out their holiday letters after hearing Ellen list her and Portia’s many accomplishments.
If Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi actually decide to send out their hilarious holiday letter, it will likely be accompanied by their hilarious Christmas card featuring Kim Kardashian’s glossy naked glutes. As the Inquisitr previously reported, the card was created using one of Kim’s internet-breaking Paper Magazine photos. You can’t send out a Christmas card like the one below if you have kids.
