The 57-year-old television host detailed her reluctance to have children in an interview with Today. DeGeneres previously shot down baby rumors in October 2014, but told anchor Matt Lauer she would be a good mom.
"I think I would [be a good parent], but that's not enough to have kids," she opined. "I love kids. But that's such a big commitment. And it seems long-term. It seems like a commitment that you have to stick with. And I just don't know if I can -- it's too risky."
