Newlywed couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are reportedly arguing about whether to have a baby

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are arguing about whether to have a baby.

The couple - who married in an intimate ceremony last month - are said to be fighting about the prospect of starting a family.

Talk show host Ellen is reportedly determined to become a mom but Portia is less keen because she would be the one carrying the child.

A source said: "Ellen wants Portia to get pregnant, an idea they had both ruled out before the wedding. Portia feels the baby issue has been decided and she is very upset.

"But Ellen has gotten all goofy over the baby issue. She has been in tears trying to get Portia to reconsider. Now the situation is very tense."

Ellen, 50, reportedly agreed to not having a child with the intention of change 35-year-old Portia's mind following the wedding.

The source added to the National Enquirer magazine: "Ellen always said, 'First marriage, then kids.' She said no to a baby before because she wasn't settled. But Ellen was sure everything would fall naturally into place after she gave Portia her dream wedding.

"Now Ellen has got the baby itch again - in a bad way. But Portia won't budge. So Ellen is sobbing to friends she feels like the air has been let out of her sails. Ellen should be on top of the world, but instead she is heartbroken."

i guess it's hard when one of you so desperately wants a child and the other doesn't, coz for the one who does it's heart breaking to know there's no chance of having that one thing in life that would make them so complete, but i also see it from the other side to that maybe they think child no time to spend quality time together, and that there life's gonna be thrown up in the air for the next 9mths and is that what they really want? it does drive you insane from both sides maybe adoption could be an alternative? i so hope there's a solution on both sides to put a smile on both faces
