According to Star Magazine, Ellen's partner Portia De Rossi will undergo in vitro fertility treatments so the couple can start their own family.
A source tells Star, "They would love a boy. But would truly be happy with any healthy baby. Portia is prepared to go through it (in vitro) 10 times if she has to. Whatever it takes to get pregnant, she'll do it. She's been changing her eating habits. Her goal is to gain a few pounds before they start the IVF process. "Ellen and Portia are mad about each other. And having a child together will only strengthen their bond."
The couple married last August. DeGeneres recently revealed they were looking to step away from the spotlight and live the quiet life on a farm once her U.S. talk show contract ends in 2010.
