With their weekend nuptials
now behind them – and chronicled in words and exclusive pictures
in the new issue of PEOPLE – Ellen DeGeneres
and Portia de Rossi are contemplating their future together.
They may not be alone.
"We go back and forth," de Rossi, 35, tells PEOPLE about the prospect of having children. "I don't know if it's our immediate future. It's something we talk about every few months."
"It's something we would never take lightly and just say, 'That would be fun.' It's a lot of work and we recognize that," says DeGeneres, 50. "In a way, we want to be selfish because we love our life, but we know how much that adds to it."
And, Ellen adds, "If they would be as pretty as Brad
's kids, we might."
