Jay Mohr Takes Wife's Name After Two Years of Marriage


This is an odd bit of news.  After two years of marriage Gary Unmarried star Jay Mohr had decided to incorporate his wife's last name to his.  She is Las Vegas celeb Nikki Cox.  Mohr filed a petition with the Los Angeles Superior Court last week in order to change his name to Jay Ferguson Cox Mohr.

His romantic gesture just happens to coincide with their second anniversary which falls on December 29th.  This is the second marriage for both.

We found it odd that Mohr waited two years to switch it up, though he's certainly not the first.  Another celebrity that changed his name legally was John Lennon who took on Yoko Ono's name to become legally known as John Ono Lennon.
