Portia de Rossi is not “heartbroken” over Ellen DeGeneres’ unwillingness to have children, despite a new In Touch report claiming the two stars “don’t agree” on whether to start a family. Gossip Cop can bust the story, which just rehashes old, wrong allegations about the couple.

According to the outlet’s source, “Ellen may be saying she never wanted kids, but her wife, Portia, certainly did.” The tabloid refers to DeGeneres’ recent appearance on the “Today Show,” during which she reiterated her lack of a desire to raise children. In Touch says de Rossi is secretly crushed, despite publicly agreeing with DeGeneres.

“They used to discuss the possibility of kids often, either Portia carrying the baby or adopting,” claims the magazine’s source, adding that DeGeneres was just trying to appease her wife and never seriously considered kids. The In Touch insider says, “Portia was heartbroken when Ellen came clean. Her dreams were shattered.”

Uh-huh. It must be nice for tabloids to just manufacture stories when their previous reports turn out to be false. In Touch has repeatedly been wrong about DeGeneres and de Rossi, mistakenly claiming last year that the couple was “having a baby” to “salvage” their marriage, and then insisting back in January that they were in “crisis.”

Nothing has changed. DeGeneres and de Rossi have always been on the same page about not having children, they’ve never tried to have children, and their marriage is not crumbling. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the “heartbreak” report is “totally off base.”
