In June, the mother-of-twins defended her husband Marco's decision to take her last name. "Fathers, sons, brothers, men everywhere: Your legacy will not perish if you take your partner's surname, or she keeps hers," the Avatar star wrote on Facebook. "I felt proud that my husband decided to take my last name as his own... and I his."
"Men, you will not cease to exist by taking your partner's surname. On the contrary -- you’ll be remembered as a man who stood by change," she writes. "A real 'man' leads along side his partner. A real man accepts his mortality. A real man acknowledges that nothing can be done alone."
