Newlywed Ellen DeGeneres has said that she and bride Portia de Rossi talk about having kids, but what baby names do they discuss?

"We've thought of names, ironically ... Jumbo Shrimp is good," the talk show host tells Extra.

Recently DeGeneres spent time with pals Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's growing family – including their newborn son Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale – which inspired some parental-ish feelings for the comedian. "I was holding Zuma this weekend. And all I kept doing was [singing] 'All I want to do is a Zuma Zuma zoom and shake your rump."

DeGeneres's alternate plan to having kids to adopt – but not just anyone. "I would adopt the Jonas Brothers," she quipped. "They really are good kids. They appreciate everything still."

The new season of The Ellen DeGeneres Show debuts Monday with guest Michelle Obama. "She's tall. That was my first impression," says the host. "She’s lovely. Her kids were here and they were as sweet as can be."
