Introducing... Portia DeGeneres!

Introducing... Portia DeGeneres!

Portia de Rossi is now Portia Lee James DeGeneres!

The 37-year-old actress was granted a legal name change in a Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday (September 23) and has taken the name of her wife, Ellen DeGeneres.

Portia, who filed the request last month, married Ellen back in August of 2008.

The AP notes that neither Ellen nor Portia attended the hearing, but name changes are routinely granted.

    Is Porticia stupid or something usually established stars don’t take their partners name accept in private. otherwise it’s an inside joke that they don’t exactly like Joanne Woodward never took Paul Newman’s last name though was always called Ms Newman in private and hated it. granted that era was totally different.

    @Courtney: It’s a completely personal choice, some partners choose to do it and others don’t. People often have completely different reason as to why want to do it or not, and we really shouldn’t jump to conclusions about Portia’s level of intelligence *cough*.
    BRAVO!! Love them both

    @for god:

    And you are sitting in judgment because…why? I wasn’t aware that God stepped down and appointed you to take His place. And your stupid comment “I wish to see all the gay/lesbian people inside a big hell…” means that you would need to be there too.

    why can’t you people in the not so moral majority leave people, like portia and ellen, alone and let them lead their own lives. sorry to break to you but YOU ARE NOT GOD! if anyone goes to a “big hell” it will be you and your friends because of your intolerance.

    Gross. I hate seeing women change their name for marriage. I hate it in hetero marriages, and I hate it in homo marriages. Especially when Portia had such an AWESOME last name. But whatever… to each their own. I just know (for damn sure) I’d never change mine.
