Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and wife, actress Portia De Rossi are moving in to a new home. The couple has recently purchased Brad Pitt’s Malibu mansion. A $12 million deal was closed days ago. The mansion was in the maket for a higher value ranging from $13.5 to $14.5 according to various reports.

The four-bed, four-bath home overlooks the Pacific Ocean, has a private beach access, consists of two separate houses, a pool, a tennis court and lush gardens. The house has bamboo flooring and glass walls.
