Default Can my husband adopt my daughter... I live in Texas

I live in Texas and when my daughter was born I didn't put anyone on the birth certificate because I didn't know who the father was. Can my husband adopt her since there is no one on the birth certificate? how would i go about changing her last name if he can adopt her?

Your husband can adopt her by filing the adoption documents in the County District Court. After the finalization of the petition a new birth certificate will be issued with new parents name together with the child’s new name. For this your husband have been a bona fide resident of Texas for last six month prior to the filing.
