Congratulations to Heidi Klum… now Mrs. Heidi Kaulitz! Heidi Klum’s married name change makes her the latest celebrity to make the switch to Mrs.! She has followed the recent celebrity married name change trend of filing to change her last name to match her new husband’s last name of Kaulitz. The entire MissNowMrs team wishes the newlyweds a lifetime of love and happiness!
Other celebrities who recently decided to change their very famous names include Katharine McPhee Foster, Hailey Bieber, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Gwyneth Faltrow (yes she blended last names,) and Amal Clooney. Statistics show that women who have a career tied to name recognition, such as doctors, lawyers, movie stars, super models, etc. are much more likely to hang onto their maiden names.
So, why are these famous newlyweds taking the name change plunge? The answer lies in how personal a name change decision is. There are all the “official factors” and then there are the “personal factors.” What is the tradition in the newlyweds’ families? How do they perceive name change? Do they want to show the world that they’re “all in?” These personal factors tend to have more weight in the name change decision than statistically relevant factors. Heidi Klum’s married name change seems to be more personally motivated than officially motivated in our expert opinions.
