Portia de Rossi has officially taken wife Ellen DeGeneres' last name.

The Arrested Development star changed her last name in a private hearing on Thursday. Portia married Ellen in a star-studded ceremony in 2008. The pair married during the five months when same-sex marriage was legal in California.

The 37-year-old blonde beauty announced that she would be changing her last name in August.

Ellen joked about Portia's name change on her Twitter account. "I just got some amazing news," tweeted Ellen, "The court has granted Portia's name change, she's now officially Portia Winfrey."
