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.

Sex & The City hunk John Corbitt will marry 80s megastar Bo Derek (aka 'the perfect 10') "in the not too distant future."
Appearing on Live with Regis and Kelly on Friday, Corbett gave the scoop about their marriage plans:
"We went to a party and we were talking about maybe doing it one day. First time we've talked about it in eight years!"
Dating for almost a decade without moving to the next step may seem strange, but Derek was hitched before to actor John Derek, until his death. She never planned on marrying again, but Corbett (who's never married) seems to be warming her to the idea:
"Why not? Yeah, we'll do that one day. For sure. In the not-too-distant future," he told Kelly Ripa.
We expect to say "Congratualtions Bo and John!" before long!
