DeGeneres, 63, does not have any children with her wife Portia de Rossi.

The two have been married since Aug. 16, 2008 and just celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary.

The talk show host wrote in People magazine in 2014 that she believed Portia and herself would be great parents but it not for them.

...Honestly, we'd probably be great parents. But it's a human being, and unless you think you have excellent skills and have a drive or yearning in you to do that, the amount of work that that is and responsibility — I wouldn't want to screw them up! We love our animals,... DeGeneres wrote.

The star couple also has three cats in their pet filled family.

In July, 2020 DeGeneres and her wife had to say goodbye to their dog Wolf.

Wolf, the poodle-Maltese mix, was in their lives for over a decade.

DeGeneres rescued Wolf from the streets as he was mistreated according to the star.

In 2009 DeGeneres told People, ...Wolf was in pretty bad shape. He was tiny … he was 'malnourished ', he couldn’t stand up. His back legs couldn’t support him because he had never been put down....

...But he’s just the craziest, sweetest dog now. Just a love!...
