How old is Ellen DeGeneres’s daughter? Any plans for another child in the future?
Once in a talk show, producer Ellen confronted about having a child. She expressed how she wanted to have her own baby at a younger age and had also made up a mind on adopting it. She said;
‘When I was younger, I really wanted to have a baby, I thought I would adopt. I never thought I would have a baby biologically but I thought I would want kids.”
She also added,
“Portia doesn’t want kids. Portia doesn’t like the squealing when they’re in a pool. That high-pitched squealing of joy that they have. She doesn’t like that. But she wants more horses. Which I don’t! We talked about it. But we just decided we like our conversations not interrupted and our furniture without sticky grape juice on it.”
In 2016, in an eponymous day time talk, she announced she added a new member to her family. While the rest thought it to be an adopted baby, in fact, it turned out to be something else. She and her partner had bought in a new puppy, Kid, a nine-year-old puppy.

“I love kids. But that’s such a big commitment. And it seems long-term. It seems like a commitment that you have to stick with. And I just don’t know if I can it’s too risky. Like, what if I don’t like the kid? What if it turns out that it’s not as cute as I wanted or as talented? I’m going to compare it to all these kids that I have on this show that are so smart and so funny. And I’m like, you are nowhere near these kids I had on today. Sit down and look at this kid I just had on! Do you know all those presidents?”
Well, for now, Ellen has no daughter. Neither she has any plans for adopting children. She is happily residing with her dog’s Kids, Wolf and Auggie. To date, no such declaration has been made by her regarding her plans of getting a smart one like her.
