Engaged pair Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are expanding their family.
A rep for 32-year-old Bell tells CNN that the couple are expecting their first child in late spring. (How we wish they taped their reaction when they found out, as we're sure it topped Bell's reaction to a sloth run-in on her birthday.)
According to People magazine, Shepard, 37, and Bell have been looking forward to becoming parents, and they're both ecstatic about the news. Bell is reportedly feeling great after having a bit of morning sickness early on, and is now back at work taping the second season of Showtime's "House of Lies."
As far as their marriage plans, Shepard and Bell told CNN earlier this year while promoting their film "Hit and Run" that they definitely plan on getting hitched, but they're waiting until same-sex marriage is legal before they do so.
"[We're not] punishing America by not getting married," Shepard joked. "We're not going to have a party when half of our friends ... can't do that thing we're doing. We're not going to ask them to come celebrate a right they don't have. That's just tacky! Forget like anything else, it's like really tacky for us.”
