Marital Issues between Ellen and Portia
Ellen and Portia De Rossi have been married for over a decade now. The continuously brewing love between the couple has been on display on many ocassion. However rumors were that Portia and Ellen’s relationship was slowly arriving at a breaking point. Portia complained that Ellen was a workaholic and was always involved with her professional life and anchoring career. She never paid attention to her private life and was neglecting Portia’s presence as well. Portia had expressed her desire to end this marriage.
Ellen thought that they might just adopt a child. They knew that having a normal baby by any means was not possible. Thus they thought that adopting a baby might save their marriage from breaking down. A pure and innocent soul would be like a tying knot for their relationship and would help them avoid the impending doom. But De Rossi was adamant about not wanting to have a baby. Thus they both decided to drop the decision through mutual discussions.

DeGeneres said in a recent interview that animals can be the closes thing to God. Ellen is a massive animal lover with her extinct animals initiative, a massive incentive for endangered species on Earth surface.
