Ellen DeGeneres wishes she had kids to keep her company while she’s self-isolating


Ellen DeGeneres reached out to celebrity pals including John Legend and Chrissy Teigen to keep her company as she continues to self-isolate at home.

The star’s popular daytime talk show is on hiatus as the comedian practices social distancing and stays home, following the advice of the World Health Organization (WHO) amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier this week (begins March 16, 2020), the 62-year-old confessed she was already “bored” with being stuck indoors and, in a video of herself on the phone to John and Chrissy, she couldn’t help but vocalize her complaints.

“So you have kids. I wish I had kids right now, I’m so bored,” Ellen, who has expressed in the past her decision to not have kids with wife Portia de Rossi, quipped.

“Yeah, we’re bored too,” All of Me star John admitted, with Chrissy adding: “We’re super bored.”

Ellen also tried calling Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, who had very unenthusiastic responses, and she also wished her pal Adam Levine a happy birthday, as the singer celebrated at home with his family.

“I’m just sitting here enjoying my wonderful family and just not much other than that,” the Maroon 5 frontman said.

While John and Chrissy may be bored at home, the stars have been making sure fans are kept entertained with Instagram live streams, during which the hitmaker debuted a new track from his upcoming album, entitled Actions Speak Louder Than Love Songs.
