(LOS ANGELES) -- Former Melrose Place star and '80s pin-up Heather Locklear celebrated her 49th birthday Saturday. Apart from having a party thrown in her honor by boyfriend Jack Wagner, Locklear was gifted with her old name. The actress filed documents on Friday to change her legal name back to Heather Locklear. She had it legally changed to Heather Deen Sambora when she married Bon Jovi guitarist Ritchie Sambora 12 years ago. She filed for divorce in 2008, but just now decided on the name change for a new passport, according to TMZ. The following evening, Wagner threw his girlfriend of three years a party at the Beverly Hills eatery Woo Lae Oak. People reports Locklear opened presents surrounded by her friends and was "laughing all night". After some overseas travel, the actress will work on the Lifetime thriller He Loves Me, set to air sometime next year.
