Introducing Mrs and Mrs DeGeneres

2010-08-11 09:20

Our favourite gay celebrity couple will now be sharing more than a home - they're sharing a name! Ellen and Portia are now Mrs and Mrs DeGeneres.

37-year-old Portia – who married talk show host Ellen Degeneres almost two years ago – filed a petition in a Los Angeles court to formally become Portia DeGeneres. However, it will only be official after a hearing on September 23.

The Arrested Development actress may be cementing her union with this name change, but she still doesn't want kids. And it seems Ellen has finally come around to the idea that it's just the two of them for now.

She says: "I don't think we're going to have kids. We have animals, and we love them. And, you know, we are brand new aunts. Her brother and his wife just had a baby girl who's a month old now, and it's fun to be a part of that. It's just a huge responsibility, and I don't know that that's something we want to take on. We're very happily married without children."

Aaw... that's sweet.

What do you think of Portia's new surname?

Portia de Rossi will now be known as Portia DeGeneres. At least her initials will stay the same. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
