ellen degeneres and portia de rossi got married Portia DeGeneres

Proposition 8 was overturned and Portia De Rossi wasted no time making changes. So what did she decide to do just 2 days after the law was changed?

We’re guessing it’s no coincidence that the actress chose to adopt wife Ellen DeGeneres surname just two days after a California federal judge came to his senses and overturned Proposition 8.

Ms. and the soon-to-be Mrs. DeGeneres married back in August of 2008.

Along with the paperwork requesting the name swap, Portia also filed a hefty number of documents seeking to redact the couple’s home address on the supporting paperwork, citing concerns that the duo’s personal safety would be at risk.
