Portia de Rossi has legally changed her name, but not to something cool like Portia de Batman, which is what I would have changed it to if I were her.
Nope, Portia has just taken on the last name of her wife, Ellen DeGeneres and will now legally be known as “Portia Lee James DeGeneres”.
The couple married back in 2008 and are famously dedicated to one another. Congratulations to both of them for taking this next step.
There’s no word yet on whether or not Portia will also be taking this name professionally (a la Courteney Cox-Arquette), but that would be totally dope.
