After the verdict to overturn Prop-8 in California, Portia de Rossi jumped on the opportunity to finally change her last name to DeGeneres, which she filed for back in March. The hearing to adopt the last name of Rossi's wife is set for September 10th, which we're all super excited for, and will pull out our hair if somehow Prop 8 is reinstated in that time. (It won't right? And even if it is, I don't think her name can retroactively change back.)
This will be Rossi's second name change; her first was when she changed her name from the oh-so-provincial Amanda Lee Rogers. (Kidding, it's a perfectly fine name.)
Best of luck to the couple in their September hearing!
