Ellen and Portia have adopted a precious 9-week-old…

Puppy named “Kid!” The daytime host announced the happy news on her show stating: “I have not talked about this yet, but we have a new puppy. Portia and I got a puppy and his name is Kid so now we have a kid. Yep. I mean, he is absolutely adorable.”

Although he’s a ball of fun, what isn’t fun is her new sleep schedule. “I’ll tell you, what’s not cute is to wake up at 11 and 1 and 3 and 5,” she told the audience. “And then 5 is when he’s up, up.”

“It really makes me appreciate what it’s like to be a mother, because, like, I’m trying to hold a puppy while I’m trying to make coffee. And I can’t do anything. He doesn’t let me do anything.” She also joked, “I named him Kid because, you know, people, there have been rumors forever, ‘When are you and Portia going to have a kid?’ So now I can say we have a Kid!”

Congrats to the happy couple. SORRY! #notsorry I had to do it. We  all needed a laugh. Admit it!

  • Shame the video has been removed :(


  • When I first saw this I thought they were having a baby, just like Ellen. She a funny lady.


  • All the very best to them. Cute.


  • Hope your new “kid” brings you all the joy and happiness you both deserve. Just because it’s not a human doesn’t make them any less special.


  • Adopting animals from rescues is the way to go. I am glad they are so passionate about saving animals and animal rights.


  • Oh! For a moment I thought it was a child!! :-)


  • lol yeah they seem to have tricked a lot of people with this lol


  • What a sneaky and cheeky headline, but so befitting Ellen! Congrats on their new kid!


  • When I read this I thought they had got a baby goat (a kid) but a puppy called Kid is much more delightful ..hope this puts an end to rude and nosey folk and wishing you both many years of happiness. :-)


  • A misleading headline. Why does everything have to be sensationalised.
    Young puppies need more toilet trips. They don’t have the ability of skill to “hang on” for hours.
    In the early stages they could need extra meals too.
    At least it won’t need 12 years schooling


  • She’s so funny. What a clever pun! I bet that puppy is going to be loads of fun!

    • It is very witty and clever and puppies can be fun.


  • Hope they enjoy the new addition to their family.


  • Lol, reading the headlines I thought she adopted a baby :) but a puppy is also cute ! Yes I love Ellen DeGeneres and her style and humor as well.


  • I love it. Good on them for getting a kid


  • Well she can now say yes to people asking. People have never said what type, I actually thought when I saw the headline she might have gotten a baby goat. Have fun yes they are like children and will always need that attention too.
