Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi add a “Kid” to the family

ELLEN DEGENERES

Well, kind of...

Ellen DeGeneres made a special announcement on her show on Thursday. The American talk show queen told the audience she and wife Portia de Rossi had welcomed a “Kid” to the family.

"There's been rumors forever — 'When are you and Portia going to have a kid?' — and, so, now I can say, we have a Kid," Ellen said.

So no, Ellen's "Kid" isn't an actual kid. The 57-year-old is referring to a fluffy pooch she adopted with Portia. Ellen told the crowd the newest family member is geting along well with her current dogs Augie and Wolf. She also said the canine has made her understand what mums have to deal with.

"It really makes me appreciate what it's like to be a mother, because I'm trying to hold a puppy while I'm trying to make coffee, and I can't do anything. He doesn't let me do anything," she said.
