Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Features,

In March, The Ellen DeGeneres Show shattered its own 10-year ratings record in the episode that immediately followed her Academy Awards hosting gig, which also gave the awards its best ratings since 2004. And her star-studded Oscars selfie almost shut down Twitter when the pic became the most retweeted ever."

Kate Winslet Explains Son’s Names

Kate WinsletKate Winslet's son is named in honor of the fire she escaped in 2011.

The Divergent actress met her now-husband Ned Rocknroll when they fled a fire on his uncle Richard Branson's Necker Island two years ago, so their little boy Bear Blaze was given a middle name to remind them of the incident.

"Bear's second name is Blaze because my husband and I met in a house fire basically. Well, we did! The house burned down and we survived. But we wanted something of the fire and so Blaze was the name that we came up with," she explained.

Kate - who also has children Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, from previous relationships - chose three-month-old Bear's name early in her pregnancy and he is named after one of her old friends. "When I was pregnant with Mia and Joe, I didn't name them before they came out because I always felt like I just have to see them and see who they're going to be. But of course, this time around there's Mia and Joe and the whole pregnancy is about 'What are we gonna call the baby?' So it was really lovely, actually.

While Greastzok tweeted, "Are we going to address the fact that ellen blatantly called liza minelli a man you'd think she would know better im extremely disappointed. i literally just sat there in disbelief when she said that i was like did she actually just say that [sic]."

"I think she thought it would be funny, but she never stopped after she said it and said 'my friend Liza Minnelli.' So I think it went a little stray on her. I don't think she meant any harm at all, and she's a wonderful lady," she told TMZ.

"There comes some pressure in your mid-30s, and you think, Am I going to have kids so I don't miss out on something that other people really seem to love? Or is it that I really genuinely want to do this with my whole heart? I didn't feel that my response was 'yes' to the latter. You have to really want to have kids, and neither of us did. So it's just going to be me and Ellen and no babies - but we're the best of friends and married life is blissful, it really is. I've never been happier than I am right now," Portia told Out.

Ellen and Portia have been married since 2008 and despite their fame, Portia insists they are just like any other happily married couple: "We've settled into happily married life. We really support each other in whatever we're doing and we're incredibly happy, which is why you don't see us in the press so much. There's no drama to report."
