Gossip Girl star Kristen Bell is pregnant and expecting her first child with fiance Dax Shepard in the spring. Kristen Bell may be engaged and pregnant, but she won’t be taking the next step and getting married until same-sex marriage is legal in California.
“We’re not punishing America by not getting married,” Parenthood star Dax Shepard, 37, told CNN in August. “We’re not going to have a party and invite our friends, half of whom can’t [get married]. We’re not going to ask them to come celebrate a right they don’t have. That’s just tacky.”
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard had something of their own to celebrate at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards – they’re engaged! Former Heroes star Kristen Bell showed off her shiny new engagement ring on the red carpet at the Grammys last night.
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell reportedly became engaged over the holidays, but kept the news under wraps until Sunday night, Bell’s rep told People. No word yet on when the wedding might take place. If they can keep the nuptials as quiet as they kept the engagement, we might not even know until after they’ve tied the knot!
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have been a couple for more than two years. Bell was previously engaged to producer Kevin Michael Mann before their relationship ended in 2007.
