“Ellen & Portia’s Final Bid for Happiness: They’re Having A Baby,” reads the headline of an In Touch story that claims Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are “starting a family” to “salvage their marriage.”

According to the tabloid, De Rossi is “convinced” a baby could change everything, and has even contacted the Center for Surrogate Parenting in Encino, California to “research their options.” “Ellen never wanted children,” a so-called “friend” tells the magazine, “but she is going along with it because she’s desperate.”

An alleged “pal” claims in In Touch, “Portia made a video montage of Ellen with the kids she’s interviewed over the years.” “It really choked Ellen up,” adds the source. “Portia hugged her, whispering, ‘You’d be the best mother ever,'” Uh, huh.

Are we really supposed to believe the mag’s source just happened to witness this intensely private and (wholly fabricated) moment? Regardless, DeGeneres has said before she’s not interested in having kids — and nothing has changed. Still, Gossip Cop checked in with an actual DeGeneres insider and we’re told the latest In Touch story is “complete B.S.”
