Portia De Rossi has revealed that she will never have children with Ellen DeGeneres as she posed for a new issue of Out magazine.
Portia De Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres have been together for over eight years and married for nearly five, but they never had the desire to start a family.
“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,” 40-year-old Portia De Rossi says in the interview.
She says she never felt the pressure to procreate like many women do when they are in their mid-30’s.

“There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, <<Am I going to have kids so I don’t miss out on something that other people really seem to love?>>” she explains.
“Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart? I didn’t feel that my response was <<yes>> to the latter.”

With her hair styled in a similar elfin-like crop as Ellen DeGeneres, it is almost hard to tell the difference between the two.
While Ellen DeGeneres continues her daily daytime talk show, Portia De Rossi will be returning to the small screen on May 26th when Netflix premieres a brand new 15 episode season of the top-notch comedy Arrested Development.
Disney’s Pixar Animation has announced today that Ellen DeGeneres will reprise her Nemo voice role for Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory.
Finding Dory is due out November 25, 2015, and will be directed by Andrew Stanton, who also made Finding Nemo.
A happy Ellen DeGeneres have said: “I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time.”

“I’m not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating <<Toy Story 16>>. But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It’s got a lot of heart, it’s really funny, and the best part is – it’s got a lot more Dory.”
Finding Dory picks up about a year after the action of Finding Nemo, with Ellen DeGeneres’ forgetful fish Dory on her own adventure to reunite with loved ones.
The film will also feature new characters along with familiar ones, including Nemo and his dad, Marlin, who was voiced by Albert Brooks, according to Disney. It is not known yet whether Albert Brooks will reprise his voice role.
Finding Nemo was released in 2003 and took in $921 million worldwide.
The movie was the first Pixar production to win the Academy Award for best animated feature after the category was added in 2001.
Pixar films have gone on to dominate, winning the Oscar seven years out of 12. (A.P.)
Jessica Simpson admits on TheEllen show that was a surprise to learn she was expecting another baby when her daughter Maxwell was less than a year old.
“We were definitely extremely shocked,” Jessica Simpson tells Ellen DeGeneres on the Wednesday edition of her talk show.
“Apparently, protection just went out the window. I feel like I’m always pregnant. We’re very happy.
“Maxwell was our focus and then I was puking and lying on the couch,” Jessica Simpson adds, recalling the time she discovered she was pregnant again.
Jessica Simpson, 32, and her fiancé Eric Johnson confirmed they were expecting their second baby back in December.
Since then, reports have suggested Jessica Simpson is expecting a baby boy, something the star hints at on the talk show.
“Well I don’t know,” she says when Ellen DeGeneres quizzes her over the sex of the baby.
“I haven’t said what it’s going to be yet.”
However, Jessica Simpson is forced into a corner when the talk show host holds up two different onesies as a gift for Maxwell, asking Jessica to choose between the “I <<heart>> my baby sister” or “I <<heart>> my baby brother”.
“You can’t have both,” Ellen DeGeneres tells her.
“You can only have one.”

Luckily, Ellen DeGeneres makes the decision for her, handing Jessica Simpson the “brother” outfit telling the star “that’s my guess okay”.
“Maybe I’ll take this one,” Jessica Simpson hints.
“If it’s a girl, she might call him bro.”
Jessica Simpson also reveals that she is finding her second pregnancy much more tiring than her first.
“It’s the complete opposite,” Jessica Simpson says.
“Like with Maxwell, I felt amazing. Like I could do everything, eat everything. Do whatever I wanted.
“I had a lot of energy. This time around, I’m like exhausted. Eating Tums. That’s my snack of choice.”
But Jessica Simpson says she has learned to be healthier in contrast to her pregnancy with Maxwell.
“The first pregnancy I like let loose and I kind of ate everything that I wanted to eat and I just really enjoyed it,” she reveals.
“This time around I think because I was doing Weight Watchers and I felt super healthy.
“I’m not really craving as much and I know how hard it is to get off so I’m trying to make healthier, wiser decisions.”
Despite her weight gain, a glowing Jessica Simpson tells Ellen DeGeneres that “apparently Eric still wanted me. So I can gain as much weight and I will have a husband to be that loves me”.
“Apparently he did,” Ellen DeGeneres responds dryly, gesturing towards Jessica Simpson’s blossoming baby bump.
Khloe Kardashian has revealed she was Photoshopped into her family Christmas card in 2011.
Khloe Kardashian was unable to attend the photoshoot for the annual Kardashian-Jenner holiday card, and so she and husband Lamar Odom, 33, had to be added in later with the help of some computer wizardry.
Appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, Khloe Kardashian said: “We pretend that we’re always together. The powers of cameras and Photoshop.”
Khloe Kardashian’s younger half-sister Kendall Jenner, 17, had to be digitally added to the picture, too, as she was sick, as did Kourtney Kardashian’s partner, Scott Disick, 29.
Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom – who plays for the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team – also missed last year’s dazzling 3D Christmas card shoot because he had a game.
She said: “That one we were all in but Lamar was Photoshopped because he had a game. It’s hard with his NBA schedule. Damn men with a career!”

When they are able to coordinate schedules, however, Khloe Kardashian says Christmas is always a big family affair, though it can get crowded in the Kardashian household.
She told Ellen DeGeneres: “Every Christmas, we’re always together. Step-brothers, sisters, everything. All 10 kids and then everyone’s extended girlfriend, boyfriend, this, that…”
Khloe added as the Kardashian siblings have gotten older and had more serious relationships, the cast of characters at Christmas largely remains the same – though she is surprised Scott Disick – who has children Mason, two, and 4-month-old Penelope with Khloe – is still a part of the family.
She said: “Now we’re sticking together. Who knew, I’m surprised Scott’s still around, but he’s here.”
Ellen DeGeneres, America’s most loved female stand-up comedian, television host and actress, finally got a star on the Walk of Fame yesterday.
Ellen DeGeneres, 54, was honored on Hollywood Boulevard in the traditional ceremony, and her lookalike mother Betty, 82, and wife Portia De Rossi were on hand to help her celebrate.
As always the funny woman hammed it up at the event as she posed with her new star.
In addition to the tradition of placing her hands on the star, Ellen DeGeneres got even closer to her new plaque, appearing to be giving it a kiss.
The blonde star wore one of her most stylish suits for the event, opting for a light grey jacket and trousers paired with a white open-neck shirt and black and white polka dot tie.
She also slipped on a pair of snazzy shoes in the form of bright white brogues.

Meanwhile, Portia De Rossi complemented her partner’s outfit by dressing in a flowing charcoal shift dress paired with tan suede open-toe ankle boots.
The couple looked more in love than ever as they cuddled up for numerous pictures.
Ellen DeGeneres’ extremely proud mother Betty, who often appears on her talk show, was by her side the whole way through the ceremony.
And it is easy to see where Ellen DeGeneres gets her looks from, as she is the spitting image of Betty, who has a similar cropped hair-cut to her daughter.
Her mother is one of her biggest fans, and went on to become a LGBT-rights activist after her daughter came out in 1997.
She is one of the first non-gay spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign’s National Coming Out Project.
Betty DeGeneres has written two books in relation to her daughter – titled Love, Ellen: A Mother Daughter Journey and Just a Mom.
In Love, Ellen: A Mother Daughter Journey, Betty DeGeneres describes her reaction to her daughter coming out as a lesbian, and her path from passive acceptance to becoming a passionate advocate for LGBT rights.
Speeches at yesterday’s event were made by fellow comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.
Ellen DeGeneres received the 2,477th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of television in front of the W Hollywood Hotel.
It has been great couple of weeks for the television star.
Portia De Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres last week celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary, as Ellen also marked her first decade as the host of her wildly popular daytime talk show.
To also celebrate this, The Hollywood Reporter put her on its front and back cover, along with a six-page story inside.
TV presenter Ellen DeGeneres has made a $1million profit by selling her Malibu beach house just six months after buying it from Brad Pitt.
Ellen DeGeneres bought the luxury four-bedroom home from Brad Pitt for $12 million and has sold it to cosmestics mogul Victoria Jackson for $13 million.
The oceanside property has sweeping coastal views of the Pacific Ocean and Point Mugu State Park, a lap pool and a modern kitchen.

Brad Pitt bought himself the 4,088 square-foot home on the Encinal Bluffs shortly after his divorce from Jennifer Aniston.
But despite being made up of two houses it was still not big enough for his rapidly expanding family with fiancée Angelina Jolie.
This is not the only change for Ellen DeGeneres.
Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi recently downsized from a palatial $49 million Beverly Hills compound to a more manageable $18 million 8500sq ft in the exclusive Trousdale Estates area of the city.
Their new home was designed by famed architect Hal Levitt and built in 1958 on an acre sized plot, which includes a swimming pool.
It features glass walls, soaring ceilings, several fireplaces, a library, four bedrooms and six bathrooms, along with views across Los Angeles.
The couple, who this week celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary, sold their previous home to American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.
That property was 2.87 acres, a whole city block, and boasted a main house comprising of 9,200 square foot, three adjacent guest-homes, and a selection of sprawling wildlife ponds.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand have never confirmed the reasons for the dissolution of their marriage in anything but the vaguest terms, but all that could change in the wake of a new film that will feature their doomed union.
Katy Perry, 27, opened up to Ellen DeGeneres on her show about her new film, Part of Me, and how she decided to show a realistic account of her life in the feature, including her relationship with Russell Brand.
The singer’s news comes just a week after Russell Brand, 36, told Ellen DeGeneres that he still loves his estranged wife.
Ellen DeGeneres asked Katy Perry about the 3D documentary, saying to her: “Of course, you got married during that time and that didn’t turn out to last, is part of it still in there?”

Katy Perry told Ellen: “I thought it was important to show everything in between.
“I think sometimes people think that we’re perfect and we know we’re not perfect, at all.”
“I think it’s important to start breaking down the idea that to achieve your dream you always have to be perfect or flawless or live in some kind of fantasy world. So that’s why I decided to put everything into the film,” Katy Perry said.
“In the most tasteful way. But mostly it’s about how I go there and the ride along the way which can be bumpy but mostly it was extremely fun.”
Some reports suggested that Katy Perry had cut Russell Brand from the footage, but this interview finally lays those rumors to rest.
The couple have been granted go ahead for a divorce but it will not be finalized until July, because California law requires a waiting period of six months.
They split just two months after their first wedding anniversary.
Katy Perry was said to have been “blindsided” when Russell Brand filed for divorce just after Christmas.
The move came after the pair enjoyed separate holidays over the festivities, Katy Perry in Hawaii and Russell Brand in his native England.
They have both moved on, Russell Brand has been linked to Brazilian artist Oriela Medallin and David Hasselhoff’s ex Anouska De Georgiou, while Katy Perry has had flings with Baptiste Giabiconi and Florence the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd.
