SOPRANOS star Jamie-Lynn Sigler's decision to take on her husband's last name has delighted her co-stars - because it makes her more Italian.

The 22-year-old actress exchanged nuptials with her 32-year-old manager AJ DISCALA on 11 July (03) in Brooklyn, New York, and immediately changed her name to Jamie-Lynn Discala.

She says, "I never thought I'd do otherwise, even before I met AJ. I'm traditional that way. Once we have children, I'd love for them to have the same name as their mom."

And those most delighted with the name change are the actress's co-stars, who include James Gandolfini and Edie Falco.

Jamie-Lynn explains, "My co-workers are excited because I finally have an Italian last name!"
