Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de
Rossi have denied rumors they're having a baby. Or did they?
Last week's cover of tabloid the Star
featured an image of the women under the headline, “Ellen &
Portia's Baby Joy!”

“That would be pretty clever of us.”
“Right,” DeGeneres responded. “But
we're not having a baby.”
“No, we're not.”
“Or are we?” DeGeneres asked to
applause from the audience. “No, we're not.”
