Ellen DeGeneres certainly has a lot to be grateful for. Her daytime talk show is set to kick off its twelfth season on Monday, September 8th--and even more importantly, her marriage with Portia de Rossi has reportedly been salvaged. This doesn't mean everything is going perfectly for the talk show host and comedienne, but Radar Online does report that the two are 'doing much better.'

Ellen and Portia just returned from a European vacation and Ellen is excited to get back to work. Her first show will feature the new--and old--coaches on The Voice. She will be joined by not only Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, but new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams as well.

“Towards the end of last season everything was really taking a toll on her,” a source told Radar Online, referring to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “While Portia was in treatment and everyone was predicting that they were getting a divorce, it was really hard. But thankfully, all of that has passed.”

“Ellen says that she will be with Portia forever and that she puts her wife before anything, even her career,” the source added.

The two recently celebrated their sixth anniversary, with a beautiful message in the sky.

Will Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi eventually create a 'baby makes three' scenario? Rumor has it Portia wants to have a child.

"All Portia can talk about is beginning a new chapter in their lives and starting a family," a source reportedly told InTouch magazine.

A baby for Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi would definitely be big news for Ellen's TV show. Just imagine how excited the audiences would be. Can you imagine the Mother's Day show that would follow such an announcement? Ellen would likely outdo Oprah Winfrey in TV giveaways by giving away a wealth of baby items.

Hopefully things truly are fine for Ellen and Portia and that if they decide a child is in the cards for them that this new facet of their lives serves to prove emotionally enriching and joyful. Fans are no doubt beyond thrilled about a new season of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Perhaps they will find the host well-rested and renewed since things are so much better with her marriage.
