Ellen DeGeneres speaks out on baby rumors
09 September 2012

Much loved lesbian comic Ellen DeGeneres has spoken out about her wish to not have a baby.

In an interview with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, the daytime television presenter dispelled the rumors which were saying her and wife Portia De Rossi were planning on having children.

The 54-year-old was asked by Leno if the reports were true, and she joked in response: ‘I am here for your sperm.’

She said: ‘I have said it so many times; we are not going to have a child.’

‘Then they say we’re just looking for the right donor.

‘Although you would be a good donor, so I’ll keep it in mind,’ DeGeneres told the late-night host. ‘It would have beautiful blue eyes, and a good sense of humor, and a good shot at a NBC show. We would do well.’

When Leno asked how many children she did not want to have, she said: ‘I don’t want to have, uh, one?’

The comic and actress later said she loves her nieces very much, but she just doesn’t want kids of her own.

DeGeneres is currently promoting the tenth season of her daytime talk show ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, which will begin airing on 10 September.
