Kristen Bell and fiance announce pregnancy!
Posted on 07 November 2012
Kristen Bell is expecting! That's right, the blonde-haired beauty is going to be a first-time mommy. Who's the father? Her fiance, Dax Shepard. The 32-year-old old mother-to-be and 37-year-old Shepard announced that they were pregnant on November 5.
“They’re so excited – they’re both ecstatic. [Bell and Shepard] can’t wait to become parents,” a friend of the couple told People Magazine.
Bell, who has starred in movies like "Forgetting Sarah Marshall," "Couples Retreat" and "Get Him to the Greek," began dating her fiance in 2007 and got engaged two years later. They are co-stars in the upcoming film "Hit and Run."
Although their little bun in the oven is due in late spring 2013, Bell and Shepard have yet to set a date for their wedding, but the Hollywood starlet told Larry King during an interview that having kids before tying the knot doesn't bother her.
However, what does get under her skin is that gay marriage isn't legal in their home state of California. The couple has said that they won't begin planning their nuptials until everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, can get hitched.
“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 during the couple's appearance on The View in July. “Can you think about how rude that would feel?” asked Bell.
With all the celebrity friends that the dynamic duo has, we're wondering what kind of newborn baby gifts they're going to get. However, one thing that we do know is that the little prince or princess is going to be utterly adorable.
