Portia de Rossi gives Ellen a sweet anniversary surprise

Just kidding, they’re not. Wait, maybe they are! No, no. They’re really not. Are you as confused as us yet?

De Rossi made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today and DeGeneres was so happy to talk about the latest baby rumors that she tweeted about it.

“It would be so fun for people if we were,” de Rossi said about the baby chatter. “They want us to have a baby,” DeGeneres replied.

“There’s a magazine… that says, ‘They’re finally starting a family.’ Like, are people really that mad at us?” asked de Rossi. “So, no.”

“No, we’re not going to have a baby?” asked DeGeneres. “No, we’re not,” answered de Rossi. “OK. Good for me to know now,” said DeGeneres.

“It’s so prevalent that everyone assumes that we really are having a baby and we’re just not sharing it,” added DeGeneres. “So, we might be having a baby. We’re just not sharing it. But we’re not having a baby. Or are we? No, we’re not.”

Though DeGeneres is playing coy, it seems like there’s a good chance the baby rumors are just that: rumors. But would it really be that far-fetched if they were expecting? So many celebrities have been able to keep their pregnancies secret for a very long time lately.

DeGeneres and de Rossi could be taking a page out of the Ryan Gosling/Eva Mendes playbook. The extremely high-profile duo went into hiding this year and managed to keep Mendes’ pregnancy under wraps until the actress was in her third trimester and didn’t ever publicly confirm that Mendes was indeed pregnant.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher also kept the public in the dark about their impending bundle of joy this year. “We were actually able to hide it for a long time,” Kunis said to DeGeneres in May, when she finally confirmed that she was expecting. “I know, it’s amazing.”

But the award for best-kept baby secret goes to the one-and-only Zach Galifianakis. The funnyman and his wife, Quinn Lundberg, we’re able to keep their baby’s name and gender under wraps for a whole year. “We don’t want to find out until it’s 16,” Galifianakis joked when Jimmy Fallon asked about the baby’s sex this week. “We just call it ‘It’ for now. No, we haven’t named it yet. It has a number right now… it’s a boy! I think fatherhood is just the greatest thing. It really is.”
