Ellen DeGeneres Introduces Her Son Stormy Cashmere, Denies Having Daughter Named Rafter Yellow

By  | 

Ellen DeGeneres loves, loves, loves surprises, pranks and dares, making her an awesome talk show host as well as the ideal sleepover guest. Usually she sticks to surprising/pranking/daring her celeb guests who comes on the show. Because there's nothing like seeing a good old-fashioned dance dare. By the way, that's a thing now, thanks to Ellen.

Last week, Ellen brought her daughter Rafter Yellow on the show for “Take Your Daughter To Work Day.” As much as I wanted to pretend that Ellen and Portia de Rossi have a daughter named Rafter Yellow, I know it's unfortunately not true. Ellen was just punkin' her audience and having a little holiday fun.

Turns out she had too much fun because a lot of people wrote in to her and let her know they had no idea she had a daughter — or why hid her daughter for so many years. So she cleared up the whole misunderstanding and admitted Yellow Rafter was a paid actress, and not her real child. Very sad, I know.

Then she introduced Stormy Cashmere, her very mature looking 8-year-old son.
