Actress Portia de Rossi reportedly filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday (August 6) to legally change her last name to DeGeneres, her wife Ellen DeGeneresâ€™ last name. Portia will become Portia Lee James DeGeneres.
Aw! How sweet! I guess now we know who wears the pants at the Rossi/DeGeneres home. Portia and Ellen tied the knot during the five-month window gay marriage was legal in California back in 2008.
Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in the state, was overturned last week. Portia and Ellen probably wanted to celebrate in style, so Portia took the next big next in their relationship â€“ to finally become Mrs. DeGeneres!
Congratulations to Ellen and Portia!
