Ellen DeGeneres is great with kids (like Sophia Grace and Rosie!), but don't expect her to have any of her own.

The funnylady's wife, Portia de Rossi, says the spouses are happy being a family of two. In an interview with OUT's May issue, the "Arrested Development" star explains their decision simply, saying, "You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did."

"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?" she explained. "I didn't feel that my response was 'yes' to the latter."

But that doesn't mean Portia, 40, and Ellen, 55, feel like they're missing out. "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," Portia said. "I've never been happier than I am right now."

"We really support each other in whatever we're doing and we're incredibly happy, which is why you don't see us in the press so much," she added. "There's no drama to report."
