Portia de Rossi recently revealed in Out magazine that there will be no babies -- now or in the future -- for her and wife Ellen DeGeneres.
"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? 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," she explains. "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."
Portia, 40, and Ellen, 55, have been married for nearly five years, and according to the Arrested Development star, "there's no drama to report."
"We've settled into happily married life. We really support each other in whatever we're doing and we're incredibly happy, which is why you don't see us in the press so much," she says. ".... We're the best of friends and married life is blissful, it really is. I've never been happier than I am right now."
