Ellen DeGeneres Shuts Down the Baby Question & it’s Genius

Raise your hand if you’re sick of your MIL asking you when you’re going to have a baby — or even another baby!

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi can relate, so they came up with a genius plan to make the baby pushers back off. 


“Portia and I got a puppy and his name is Kid so now we have a kid,” Degeneres said during the January 14 episode of ELLEN.  “I named him Kid because…There have been rumors forever,” she added. ‘When are you and Portia gonna have a kid?’ So, now I can say we have a Kid. So it can just stop.”

She then admitted that life is not easy right now. “He’s 9 weeks old and cute as can be, but I’ll tell you what’s not cute at all, is to wake up at 11, and 1, and 3, and 5. And then 5 is when he’s UP up.”

We can so relate, Ellen!

Degeneres went on to give a shout out to moms. “It really makes me appreciate what it’s like to be a mother,” she said. “Because like I’m trying to hold a puppy while I’m trying to make coffee. And I can’t do anything. He doesn’t let me do anything.” 

Congratulations to the couple, who also have pups Auggie and Wolf at home.
