25 Celebrities Open Up About Their Reasons For Remaining Child-Free

12. Portia de Rossi

After marrying comedian Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi was pelted with questions about whether the two would have children someday. And the fact of the matter is, they just didn’t want to.

She told Out Magazine:

“There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, ‘Am I going to have kids so I don’t miss out on something that other people really seem to love? Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart?’ I didn’t feel that my response was ‘yes’ to the latter. You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did. So it’s just going to be me and Ellen and no babies – but we’re the best of friends and married life is blissful, it really is. I’ve never been happier than I am right now.”
