It’s official: Portia de Rossi has taken wife Ellen Degeneres‘ last name.

Just hours ago, a Los Angeles Superior Court commissioner granted the 37-year-old actress’ request to take the last name of her partner during a closed hearing.

She will now legally be known as Portia Lee James DeGeneres. Or how most people refer to her nowadays: Ellen’s wife.

Making the most of a sunny afternoon, Ellen DeGeneres was spotted taking her lovely wife Portia de Rossi out for lunch in Los Angeles on Thursday (August 12).

Portia, who has been married to Ellen for two years, has just recently filed to have her name legally changed to Portia Lee James DeGeneres.

Meanwhile, Ellen went from judge to contestant as she danced on the finale of So You Think You Can Dance? alongside dancer tWitch last night.

The 52-year-old talk show host had reportedly practiced for one month for the special performance.

She agreed to perform in place of competition favourite Alex Wong, who was out with a foot injury.

“I had so much fun and it broke my heart when I saw the injury, and as a joke I said it would be fun to do and it became a reality,” said Ellen after her performance. “This is so fun, I hope this is an inspiration, everybody, National Dance Day was for me. It doesn’t matter if you have ever had a dance class in your life, which I haven’t, maybe you couldn’t tell. But everybody should do this, it is so much fun.”
