Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi are finally ready to start their own family, US magazine In Touch is reporting.

The magazine is reporting that Justin Timberlake let everyone know the couple were wanting kids when he referred to his pal Ellen as Portia’s baby mama at the Peoples Choice Awards on January 19th.

“Having a child has always been a dream of Portia’s, but Ellen has always gotten cold feet,” a source tells In Touch. “Though they’ve been down this family-talk road many times, it really looks like they’re finally serious about having a baby.”

  Portia has had issues with her health which caused the couple to put a hold on their plans but these are all under control following a stint in rehab in Spring 2014.

“Portia’s doing so well now has been a huge factor in Ellen’s decision to agree to start a family,” the source says and it is believed the coupe will look to carry their child or adopt from Ellen’s hometown of New Orleans.
