If you’ve been holding your breath waiting for Ellen DeGeneres, 53, and wife Portia de Rossi, 38, to have a baby, well, then, you are not reading this because you’ve obviously lost consciousness by now. And I’d suggest you start inhaling oxygen again once you have been resuscitated because Ellen says it ain’t gonna happen, people.
“People are constantly asking Portia and me if we are going to have children,” Ellen writes in her third book, Seriously…I’m Kidding (out now). “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.”
Hey, I can understand that. And just because they don’t want children doesn’t mean they can’t pose like they’re expecting one! Here are their Top 5 “WE’RE HAVING A BABY! (NOT!)” poses:
1. Ellen and Portia have fun with the classic “We are confirming the rumor” pose.
2. Their official (un)pregnancy portrait.

4. …”And we just found out IT’S A BOY! We’re OVER THE MOON!” (Psych!)
5. A shotgun wedding…?
