LOS ANGELES, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- With the ceremony behind them, U.S. same-sex newlyweds Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi say they're considering having children.

"We go back and forth" on having children, de Rossi, 35, told Poeple Magazine. "I don't know if it's our immediate future. It's something we talk about every few months."

U.S. television talk show host DeGeneres, 50, and former "Ally McBeal" actress de Rossi tied the knot in a secret, low-key Los Angeles ceremony last weekend in what some observers say is the highest-profile same-sex marriage so far in the United States. But now the couple are looking to the future, the magazine reported.

"(Having children is) something we would never take lightly and just say, 'That would be fun,'" DeGeneres said. "It's a lot of work and we recognize that. In a way, we want to be selfish because we love our life, but we know how much that adds to it."

Ellen told People, "If they would be as pretty as Brad and Angelina's kids, we might."
