Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen and Portia Want to Have Babies and Live on a Farm
Posted on February 20th, 2009 by Spicy

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are close to settling down and having a child.
Star magazine says the couple will undergo fertility treatment in the not-so-distant future.
DeGeneres has recently said that once her contract expires in 2010 the women would like to move out of the spotlight and onto a rural farm.
De Rossi has also been quoted as saying she would like children sometime soon. “There are times when I think I’d be really selfish not to adopt a child. It’d be great to spend our lives with somebody, a little child that really needs a home.”
However, the couple have decided on using IVF to conceive a child of their own. Sources say they would really love to have a baby boy.

God, I love this couple. First Ellen made gay acceptable for Midwestern house wives, then she moved on to become a symbol of gay marriage and now her and her wife, Portia de Rossi are planning on having a baby!
“They would love a boy,â€‌ an insider tells Star. “But would truly be happy with any healthy baby.â€‌
Hopefully this will ease some of the concerns less-informed people and bigots have that children raised by homosexuals will suffer developmentally. Maybe it will even spread to Arkansas, which has a big viewership of Ellen’s show, along with a ban on gay foster-parenting.
Right now, at least 4 million U.S. children have one or both parents who identify themselves as homosexual, said Gary Gates of the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law. My roommate in college was one of them and she was a lovely, psychologically healthy person. So were her two moms, because a good parent is a good parent, regardless of sex.
Science has proven it too, though studies are limited. Sociologists Judith Stacey and Timothy Biblarz published an analysis in 2001 in the American Sociological Review of 21 studies of children raised by homosexual parents and found that, overall, they were just as â€کnormal’ as kids raised in traditional homes. This was later endorsed by American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association and other mainstream organizations.
But still, little has helped remove the stigma. Let’s hope Ellen can.
