Ellen DeGeneres And Portia de Rossi Don't Want Children

Were you wondering if Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were ever going to start a family? Well don't hold your breath because it looks like happy couple are comfortable without a baby making three.

According to Us Weekly, in her new book "Seriously... I'm Kidding" the 53-year-old talk show host writes, "We thought about it. 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."

While the pitter-patter of little human feet may not be in cards for superstar couple, both women have their hands full with plenty of other little creatures. Ellen writes:

"We have two dogs, Mabel and Wolf, and three cats at home, Charlie, George and Chairman. We have two cats on our farm, Tom and Little Sister, two horses, and two mini horses, Hannah and Tricky, We also have two cows, Holy and Madonna. And those are only the animals we let sleep in our bed."

The couple have been married since 2008 and like most stars they've had to deal with false reports the two are trying to get pregnant.

In 2009, de Rossi shot down rumors that she was undergoing in vitro fertilization treatments, telling Access Hollywood, "That was just completely made up," and "The baby [rumor] comes around annually. I find … once a year, you know, whether I deny it or not … It doesn’t make any difference.”

The baby rumors have become somewhat of a joke for the couple. Portia even appeared on Ellen's show after pregnancy reports first surfaced. She joked to Ellen, "So I hear we are having a baby. I probably should have told you before the tabloids told you."

Portia and Ellen may not be having a baby, but these celebrities are:
