We all know Ellen Degeneres can be a little cheeky. 

So we wouldn’t expect anything less than that when announcing a new addition to her family. 

It seems Ellen and her partner Portia have adopted a new puppy… and aptly called it ‘kid’.

“I named him Kid because, you know, people…There have been rumors forever. ‘When are you and Portia gonna have a kid?’ So, now I can say we have a Kid. So it can just stop,” she said. 

She made the announcement on her show this week. 

She joked about waking up all throughout the night to tend to their new ‘baby’. 


Ellen also claims that trying to hold a puppy while doing chores and making coffee make it impossible for her to even consider actual children. 

She then gave some advice to father to be and resident DJ ‘Twitch’ about what to expect when his partner Alison has a child soon.
