It’s a girl!
“Lincoln Bell Shepard is here,” the proud father tweeted today, March 28, about their daughter’s arrival. “She has mom's beauty and dad's obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!”

NEWS: Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Expecting Baby No. 1
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 meant having a child before a wedding.
While promoting their film Hit and Run last 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.”
And now that the hard part is over with, we hope Kristen— who couldn’t wrap her head around giving birth— had smooth sailing in the delivery room.
“I feel like when I arrive at the hospital, I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back," Kristen joked of her impending delivery. "And I want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it’s over, because I’ve seen the videos and it looks terrifying."
Congratulations to the couple on their blushing baby girl!
