Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are new parents to an adorable puppy named Kid. On her talk show on January 14, DeGeneres announced that the couple just adopted a nine-week-old dog that is apparently keeping them up at all hours of the night. DeGeneres explained the reasoning behind naming their furry friend Kid saying, "There's been rumors forever — 'When are you and Portia going to have a kid?' . . . . So now I can say, we have a Kid." Being a mommy to a "newborn" has definitely given DeGeneres a whole lot of appreciation for motherhood.

Adopting a puppy does feel like adding another family member and hopefully this will be the end to DeGeneres and De Rossi being questioned over their plans for conception. Here are 11 celebrities who also love their furry family members.
