Remember when Heidi Klum took Seal's surname... 4 years after they married? Well the fashionable couple may have been jump-starting a trend, because now Portia de Rossi is taking Ellen DeGeneres' name... over two years since they wed! [via TMZ]
Maybe it's a model thing: Portia was a model before she became an actress, turning in hilarious performances in Scream 2 and "Arrested Development," and of course Heidi Klum is Heidi freakin' Klum!
Name-changing has been in the news a lot lately, from those who think brides should be forced by law to take their husband's name, to grooms taking their brides' names, to both keeping their own names or hyphenating. It's a lot to consider.
