Portia de Rossi covers the new issue of Out Magazine, and the 40-year-old actress reveals that she and Ellen DeGeneres, who have been married for nearly 5 years, have no plans to have children.
"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 told the mag. "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 ... 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." Well, and cats and dogs and horses ... they do have some four-legged babies!
"We've settled into happily married life," she added. "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. There's no drama to report. Married life is blissful, it really is. I've never been happier than I am right now."
