Portia De Rossi becomes Mrs DeGeneres

Fri 24 Sep 2010 In: International News View at Wayback

Actress Portia De Rossi has officially changed her name to Portia DeGeneres, with a judge signing an order granting the name change. "I am thrilled to legally adopt my wife's name. I will continue to use Portia de Rossi for professional purposes," she said in a statement. She and Ellen DeGeneres started dating in 2004 and married in 2008, before the Proposition 8 referendum wiped gay marriage from law in California.
