One of comedy’s cutest couples is expecting their first child together! Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell have confirmed to US Weekly that they are in fact pregnant. The When in Rome costars met in 2007 and after two years of dating became engaged in 2009. However, the couple still has no intention of tying the knot any time soon. In the past Bell, 32, has claimed (much like Brad and Angie) they will wait to marry until everyone can enjoy the same right:
“The reason we’re not rushing to get married is because I don’t feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that’s denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends. That’s why we’ve been so hesitant. Dax and I have talked about it a lot, and this issue is very important to both of us. We’re just standing up for what we believe in. Period.”
The couple is overjoyed at the announcement of the newest member of their family. The Parenthood actor, 37, confirmed the pregnancy last night on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno describing his mother’s joy over the news:
“It’s true, my mom is probably the most excited. It’s an unhealthy thing — I don’t recommend it — but she has a Google alert on my name, so if I do anything, she finds out about it, basically.”
The Hit and Run costars are not shy about gushing about their love and we are so happy to see their family grow!
