Lautner confirms fiancée Taylor will take his last name

The iconic actor confirmed that the couple will both be called Taylor Lautner when they tie the knot. Lautner has previously joked that the “narcissism is incredible” seeing as he is marrying someone with the same name as him.

Lautner revealed how their discussion about her taking on his moniker unfolded: “I was like, are you into this last name? Because we already share one name. So it’s gonna be extra complicated,” he told Kelly in a recent interview. “We’re literally going to be the same person,” he jested. “We either keep it super simple or super complicated.”

Jacob Black’s portrayer explained how they make it easier among friends, and that he goes by his full first name, whereas Dome gets called “Tay.” He continued, “Or a lot of people just say ‘boy Tay’ and ‘girl Tay’.”

The first time they met was at a games night and they immediately “hit it off.”

Lautner told Access Hollywood that he was instantly attracted to Taylor: “I knew when I first met her that I wanted to get to know her more, and I really, really could see a future with her. She’s a fantastic woman and I’m very lucky that she chose me,” he explained.

Lautner can often be founded gushing over his future wife on social media, in a post shared after he got down on one knee, Taylor wrote: “Cannot wait to spend forever with you @taydome You love me unconditionally. You don’t put up with my s***. ” He continued, “you calm me when I’m anxious. You make me laugh way too much. You make every single day spent with you so special.
