Ellen DeGeneres’ wife Portia filed a decree to change her name with the Los Angeles Superior Court and RadarOnline.com has learned the change was approved on Thursday.

The couple was married at a small, private ceremony at their home on August 16, 2008 and despite the passing of Proposition 8, they remain legally married by a Supreme Court judgment because their vows occurred before November 4, 2008.
