Lindy Klim has revealed she cannot wait to take the surname of her fiancé Adam Ellis.
The 39-year-old currently goes by her ex-husband Michael Klim’s last name, despite splitting from the Olympic swimmer two years ago.
Speaking with Confidential on Monday, the Bali-based fashion designer revealed that her children encouraged her to keep the sportsman’s famous moniker.

‘I would love to get rid of Klim, I really hate having that as a last name but for my children at the moment, that is what it is,’ Lindy told Confidential.
She and Michael share three children together- daughters Stella, 12, and Frankie, 6, and son Rocco, 9.
Lindy’s maiden name is Rama, but she took her ex’s surname when they married in April 2006.

However she confirmed to Confidential that she will be known as Lindy Ellis once she weds fiancé Adam.
‘My kids all want me to keep the name Klim and it has been a big issue with them and they have been concerned about it… (but) they understand that once I marry Adam it will change.’
Lindy announced her engagement to the British property developer in late 2016 following a whirlwind romance.

The couple welcomed their first child together, daughter Goldie, last December.
Working mum Lindy is now employing her maiden name in her new fashion business, Rama Voyage.
The designer proudly told Confidential that Rama means ‘king’ in Balinese – extremely fitting as she is the niece of the King of Denpasar, making her a princess of the Indonesian island.
