Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are expecting their first baby!
The ‘Parenthood’ actor and ‘House of Lies’ actress are “so excited – they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents,” a close friend tells people.
Bell, 32, and Shepard, 37, have been dating since 2007, and have been engaged for three years.
While promoting their filmÂ Hit and RunÂ this summer,Â the couple saidÂ children were definitely in their future and would likely come before a wedding, since they donâ€™t plan to marry until same-sex marriage is legal in their home state of California.
â€œWe wouldnâ€™t want to invite all of our friends who donâ€™t have that right to celebrate us, who have that right. We just donâ€™t feel right about that,â€ ShepardÂ said onÂ The ViewÂ in July. Added Bell: â€œCan you think about how rude that would feel?â€
Having kids before marriage, Bell toldÂ Larry KingÂ in August, â€œdoesnâ€™t really bother us.â€
Congrats to the couple! So happy for them!
