Washington (ANI): Portia de Rossi is planning to change her name after marrying talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at their Beverly Hills, California home on 16 August, after the state lifted its ban on gay marriage.
The 'Arrested Development' star de Rossi plans to keep her maiden name for now, but may soon be tempted to take her new bride's second name. "I may do it in the future, but I don't think I'm going to do it right now," Contactmusic quoted her, as telling People mag.
But talk show host and media magnate DeGeneres insists it would be far too expensive for her to switch to de Rossi: "If I changed my name to hers, then Telepicture (DeGeneres' productions company) would have to change a lot of signs."
