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 film Hit and Run this summer, the couple said children were definitely in their future and would likely come before a wedding, since they don’t plan to marry until same-sex marriage is legal in their home state of California.
“We wouldn’t want to invite all of our friends who don’t have that right to celebrate us, who have that right. We just don’t feel right about that,” Shepard said on The View in July. Added Bell: “Can you think about how rude that would feel?”
Having kids before marriage, Bell told Larry King in August, “doesn’t really bother us.”
Congrats to the couple! So happy for them!
