With the news that Fergie is in the midst of legally changing her name from Stacy Ferguson to Fergie Duhamel, it's time to look at other famous married ladies who took their husbands' last names post-wedding. From Victoria Beckham to Jessica Timberlake (!!!), here's who took the plunge...
Stacy Ferguson, known to the world as Fergie, is officially in the process of changing her legal name to Fergie Duhamel. Let's hope the paperwork goes through ASAP because if their baby-to-be has the name Fergie on his/her birth certificate that's like the coolest thing ever.
Victoria Adams was a Spice Girl who became Victoria Beckham after marrying David in 1999. Best decision she's ever made, for sure.
Portia De Rossi
It worked out really well that Portia De Rossi became Portia Degeneres after her marriage to Ellen—she only had to change a few letters!
Remember when the opening credits for Friends changed to say Courteney Cox Arquette and it was the weirdest thing ever? Court's since dropped the 'Arquette' in her name after her divorce from David.
Rebecca Romijn has admitted that people still call her Rebecca Romijn Stamos even though she's no longer married to John Stamos, but we can't help it. It kinda just rolls off the tongue.
Sure, she's still known simply as Khloe Kardashian to us, but Khloe technically does use her husband's last name, Odom, both personally and professionally.
Pamela Anderson added "Lee" to her name during her years married to Tommy Lee, but let's be real—her name sounds way better without it.
We'll never forget when Ashlee hyphenated her last name to Simpson-Wentz when she and Pete were together. Ah, memories.
Eva Longoria became Eva Longoria Parker during her four year marriage to then-husband, Tony Parker.
Danielle Deleasa was just a regular ol' Jersey girl before meeting her hubby, Kevin Jonas, on vacation in the Bahamas. Now she's Danielle Jonas with a Jonas baby on the way!
Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada Pinkett took on Will's last name, Smith, once they got married. We hope these two never get divorced because her name just doesn't sound right without 'Smith' at the end of it.
Jessica Biel made the right choice in legally changing her name to Timberlake after she married Justin in 2012. If you had that option, wouldn't you do it too?
