In the meantime, it is reported that the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' beauty and her NBA star husband have officially signed a pre-nuptial agreement.
Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian

is inching closer to adopting ' last name. Just days after the "" star tied the knot with the New Jersey Nets player, words came out from E! News that she is currently in the process of legally changing her name.

Unlike what has been suggested back in June, the 30-year-old won't drop her famous last name and take her husband's in replacement. Instead, she will add Humphries to her name and remain a Kardashian for her public and professional life much like what her younger sister did after she married another NBA star .

In another news, The Hollywood Reporter has uncovered that Kim and new husband Kris have officially signed a pre-nuptial agreement. Family wealth planner Laura Zwicker explained that the pre-nup serves as safeguards for both parties as well as the Kardashian clan, who have business ventures with Kim.

Additionally, Laura noted that should the newlyweds part ways in the future, it will be difficult for Kris to dispute the agreement. "In their situation, it's less likely that a court would find it was unconscionable," so she said. "They are similarly situated. She might have 10 times as much assets as he has, but he is not poverty stricken."
