The chat show host's family were alleged to have disapproved of her being gay according to her mother Betty, who wrote in her 2000 biography that her dad Elliott kicked her of his home when she came out.

However, Elliott insists the claims are unfounded and said he loves 56-year-old Ellen "very, very, very much" and approves of her marriage to Portia, who she wed in 2008. His second wife Virginia added: "Portia's so wonderful. She's very kind and beautiful and generous. She's just perfection... you can't improve on perfection. We went to the wedding! It was sublime, spectacular. But it was also very private and beautiful."

The couple aren't holding out hope for any grandchildren, however, and think their extended families will remain the main focus in Ellen and Portia's lives. Virginia told National Enquirer magazine: "I mean, who's going to start having children at 56?"

Ellen's proud parents have even started watching the Oscars ever since the popular presenter hosted the 79th Academy Awards in 2007, repeating the honour this February. Virginia enthused: "She's made it palatable. She's the best host there's been."
