"Off to legally change my last name! Exciting!!" Rycroft wrote in a Tuesday post to her Twitter account.
While the rejected The Bachelor bachelorette and former Dancing with the Stars celebrity participant has decided to legally change her surname to that of new husband Ty Strickland -- whom she married last month in Mexico -- she still plans on using her maiden name for work.
"Strickland will probably just be for personal use, since most people know me as Rycroft," she posted on Twitter.
Rycroft and Strickland got engaged in June -- less than eight months after she got engaged to Jason Mesnick during the taping of The Bachelor's thirteenth-season Final Rose Ceremony in November 2008.
