Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi do not regret not having children

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi got married in 2008.

American talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres has opened up about her decision not to have children. The Oscar host revealed she and her wife Portia de Rossi do not regret about not expanding their family.

During an interview with Sunday Style, DeGeneres said: "We talked about it for a minute, about four years into the relationship, but we just decided we like our conversations not being interrupted and our furniture without sticky grape juice on it."

"This morning we just lay in bed, had coffee and laughed because they are so adorable, the way they play. Also, I think in this profession it can be really tough for children."

She added: "It's hard for them to have to share their parents with the world. I even see it with my nieces. When we're out in public and people want to talk to me they're like, 'Why does everybody want your time? Why aren't you just with me?'"

DeGeneres married the Australian-American actress in 2008. She gushed about the Arrested Development star: "She's my everything. She makes me happy, she makes me laugh. There's nobody I'd rather be around than her, and she feels the same about me. It's all you could ever dream of."

"She's taught me that who I am is good enough, and I don't have to pretend to be anything other," she added.
