Kristen Bell and Dax
Shepard Are Expecting
Baby No. 1!


A baby is on the way for Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard!

A rep for the actress confirms to In Touch that Kristen, 32, and her fiancé Dax, 37, “are expecting their first child in late spring.”

The couple— who have been dating since 2007 and have been engaged for nearly three years— have always seen children in their future, even if it means having a child before a wedding.

While promoting their film Hit and Run this summer, the duo admitted that kids would likely come before marriage, as they want to wait to tie the knot until California allows same-sex marriage.

“We wouldn’t want to invite all of our friends who don’t have that right to celebrate us, who have that right,” Dax mentioned to the women of The View earlier this year. “We just don’t feel right about that.”

Kristen agreed, telling Larry King that having kids before marriage "doesn’t really bother us," — and it looks like that may be the case!

Though this will be the first child for both Kristen and Dax, the father-to-be already has plenty of practice, as he is one of the main characters on the NBC show Parenthood.

Congratulations to the expecting couple— we can't wait to meet your bundle of joy!
