Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi have been plagued by baby rumours for a while. A certain tabloid has reported that the married couple is planning to add a new member to their family. However, there is no truth to the report, as the talk show host and her better half recently revealed that they are not having a baby.

"It's so fun for everybody. There's this magazine...did you see it says, 'They are finally starting to have one.' Like are people really that mad at us?" Portia said during "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." The married couple reportedly came to know about the rumours when their near- dear ones started congratulating them. Portia's brother gave her a call and asked her whether he is going to be an uncle or not, according to E Online. Ellen reportedly got a call from her assistant who asked her whether "she is keeping a secret from him."

Ellen and Portia got married in 2008. At the time, Portia had said that she and Ellen have no plans of extending their brood. "It's just going to be me and Ellen and no babies," she said, as quoted by ABC News. This is not the first time that the couple is tackling rumour about their personal life. There have been reports that have suggested that their marriage is on the rocks. However, Ellen has always maintained that she is happily married to Portia.

Meanwhile, the couple recently treated themselves to a joint mani-pedi session. They posted a series of pictures from their spa retreat on Twitter in which they appear to be having fun. In one of the pictures, Portia could be seen sitting in a salon chair and getting a pedicure. She is donning a black turtleneck sweater and rolled up her jeans. Her cropped tresses fall loosely over her face, as she is keenly watching the pedicurist. In another picture (now removed from Twiiter) Ellen can be seen getting her fingernails done. Ellen and Portia celebrated their ten-year of togetherness earlier this December. They first started dating each other in 2004. They exchanged vows in a private ceremony at their Beverly Hill residence in 2008.
