Portia de Rossi: Taking Ellen DeGeneres' Last Name!

Portia de Rossi is taking wife Ellen DeGeneres‘ last name!

The 37-year-old actress filed a petition in L.A. County Superior Court last week asking to legally change her name to Portia Lee James DeGeneres.

According to TMZ, Portia‘s paperwork notes that the reason for the petition is that she’d like to take her spouse’s name.

Portia and Ellen tied the knot back in August of 2008.

    I wish I had the balls to change my name without everyone around me thinking I was a lunatic. Portia was born Mandy Rogers, now this….Congrats to them though, they are a great couple.

  • to missy

    if this were a hetrosexual couple you would not be so assine as to suggest that they were getting married for polictical reasons. they love each other, you idiot. please grow a brain.

  • Ganymede

    Yawn. It’s not like Portia’s using the old name anyway. Other than being Ellen’s gwife, her career’s kind of at a standstill. (Is she in the Arrested Development movie?)

  • to missy

    here i thought there were aliens each with two heads, four arms, and four legs. of course they are two women. hate to break this to you as obviously you have no knowledge of reproductive technology. but portia is more than capable of having a child. don’t need a man in the house for that one. ever hear of A.I.?? (or do you need to spell out the words). as for this being unnatural, not cool who died and elected you god??

    Hi Missy, condivido ciò che hai scritto !!!

  • rock n roll queen

    they are so cute together i adore ellen

  • mailey

    that’s cute. nice gesture.

  • to missy

    honest to god!! Are you always this stupid or is today a special occasion. of course you need a man in order to have a baby. you missed the point completely idiot. so i shall say it again this time i will spell it out. a woman wants to have a baby without getting married, or “doing” it with a man she goes to the sperm bank. do you understand this concept or am i going to fast for you??

  • to missy

    god in heaven!! I don’t know what makes you so stupid, but it really works. of course you “need” a man to get pregnant, idiot. however, you obviously missed or didn’t understand the concept. so let me explain what is so easy to understand. if a woman wants a child without “doing it” with a man all she has to do is go to the sperm bank. now do you understand, little girl.
