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 just can’t believe that Ellen is 52 years old!

    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?)

    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??
