Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have ruled out children and say they are happy with just each other.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi don't want children.
The chat show host and the 'Arrested Development' actress are blissfully happy together and while Portia, 40, admits they have talked about kids, they ultimately decided it's not for them.
Portia told Out magazine: ''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. 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.''
Ellen and Portia have been married since 2008 and despite their fame, Portia insists they are just like any other happily married couple.
She said: ''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. There's no drama to report.''
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
