Jodi Anasta will keep her married name following separation from husband Braith.

They have have announced their trial separation way back in December of last year, but Jodi Anasta, previously Gordon, has confirmed that she won’t be changing her name back.

The former Home and Away actress has decided to remain an Anasta because of her two-year-old daughter Aleeia.

Jodi, 31, has spoken to the Daily Telegraph about her decision.

"I don’t know why people think I ever changed it [back]," she said. "I want the same last name as my daughter. I have no problem. I am an Anasta. It’s a done deal."

Jodi and her footballer husband Braith, 34, share joint custody of their little girl Aleeia, who recently enjoyed a lavish birthday with her parents at Taronga Zoo. The family are making every effort to form a united front despite the relationship breakdown.

Braith revealed earlier this year that it was separate ideals about children and different career paths that tore them apart.
